Favorite Blueberry Banana Bread Recipe

This recipe is a keeper. The banana bread disappeared really fast! I think it’s so good because it’s got oats in it. It makes for a really good, grainy texture. Maybe “grainy” isn’t a good word. Maybe grainy implies that there are hard “seed-like” chunks in there, which is not the case at all! It is very soft and moist and hearty and wholesome. I will definitely be making this again!
