Healthy Blueberry Banana Bread


1/4 cup maple syrup

Maple syrup is a healthy sweetener made from the sap of maple trees. It’s high in antioxidants and has been linked to improving heart health, lowering cholesterol levels, and helping your body use insulin more efficiently.

Maple syrup has also been shown to have anti-inflammatory benefits, which can help reduce pain associated with inflammation caused by arthritis or other chronic conditions like diabetes.

1 large egg at room temperature

It’s best to use a room-temperature egg, which is easier to separate and mix with the other ingredients. Egg whites should be at room temperature before they’re whipped into a meringue or mixed with other ingredients, so plan!

The secret here is time: Eggs take longer than you think to come up to room temperature. We recommend waiting 30 minutes before using them in baking recipes like this one if you live in cooler climates (and if your fridge isn’t on).

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

This is an optional step, but I highly recommend it. Vanilla adds flavor, sweetness, and moisture to the bread—and because there are so many natural sources of antioxidants in blueberries (and other fruits), this can be a great way to get your daily dose of vitamins!

2 cups white whole wheat flour (or all-purpose flour)

If you are looking to make this bread healthier, consider using white whole-wheat flour. White whole wheat flour has a higher fiber content than all-purpose flour and is made from a special type of wheat that has a lighter color and milder taste than regular whole wheat.

You can find it in the baking aisle at your local grocery store or online here:

1 teaspoon baking soda

Baking soda is a leavening agent, which helps the bread rise. It also helps balance the acidity of the banana and keeps it from turning brown after baking.

1/2 teaspoon salt

Salt is a mineral that’s essential for the body. It can be used to flavor food and preserve it. Salt can also be added to water to make it taste better, or used to treat an illness by diluting your urine with electrolytes like sodium chloride (NaCl).

6 ounces fresh blueberries (about 1 heaping cup), divided*

When measuring the blueberries, use a heaping cup instead of an ounce. This will give you more berries in your final loaf and help to keep it from being too dry.

You can also add another 1/4 cup or so of flour (depending on how wet your batter is).

This bread will change your life!

It’s healthy, but you won’t even know it. The only way you’ll know is by tasting the wonderful flavors that come from this recipe.

This recipe is easy to make and it’s fast too. You can make it with fresh or frozen blueberries; just thaw them out before adding them to your batter.
