Hello Blog, Nice to See You Again

Hello Blog, Oh how I have missed you. 

Since finding out I was PREG- the last thing I had energy to do was bake or post on a blog. 

No energy = a great deal of lounging on the couch.

So, for the past few weeks I have bought bananas at the store, only to watch get ripe on the counter.  I always have to act quick if I want to make something before Matt throws them away.  I have lost very many bananas that way.  Banana bread has been a very easy and quick breakfast I can take with me to work.  So tonight it was bread making night.

I have given this recipe before, but I made them in muffin form.  This time...a LOAF.

So here is the recipe again.  It is my fav and calls for some different items.  Down here in the AR, people have not heard of blueberry banana bread.  No lie, it is so much better then the original.  Trust. Me.  And it's better for ya. (Wink-Wink) 

Alright, here we go!

Blueberry Banana Bread:

1/2  cup butter
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 cup bananas, mashed
1/2 cup quick oats
1 1/2 cup flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 cup pecans (optional- I didn't use)
1 cup blueberries


1.  Cream together butter, sugar, and eggs.
2.  Mix together bananas, quick oats, flour, baking soda, and salt
3.  Fold in the blueberries and pecans


Quick Oats- Who would have thunk.


Do you have one of these sweet sprayers?  You put in your own vegitable oil and then pump and spray.  Now-a-days you're hearing how bad aerosol spray is for you.  Mine is from Pampered Chef and I LOVE.  Also a great stocking stuffer for Mom.


Grease loaf pan and bake at 350 for 50-55 minuutes. 

Serve HOT with butter or cream cheese!  Enjoy!
