Banana Nut Blueberry Oat Bread

20140716-221356-80036535.jpg

I had some bananas that needed to be used up and it’s blueberry season so I decided to make some bread. Here is my recipe. Makes 2 loaves or 12 individual square loaves and 1 9×9 loaf.

Ingredients:
3 1/4 cups flour
1 cup oats
2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup pecans
1 1/2 cups blueberries
2 cups sugar
1 cup shortening
2 tsp vanilla
4 eggs
4 ripe bananas

In medium bowl, gently mix flour, salt, baking soda, oats, pecans and blueberries.
In a large bowl, cream shortening and sugar. Add vanilla and mix. Add eggs one at a time and mix well. Add bananas and mix well.
Add flour mixture to banana mixture. Mix until everything is moistened.
Pour into greased pans. Bake at 350F for 50 min or until toothpick comes clean. Bake for approx. 20 min for muffins or individual brownie pan.

Notes: substitute pecans for walnuts or another nut you prefer. Substitute blueberries for chopped strawberries or your favourite berry.
If your bananas are ripe enough there is no need to pre-mash them. The mixer or your spoon will do it for you when you are mixing them with the wet ingredients.
