Whole Wheat Cinnamon Sugar Blueberry Banana Bread

This delicious breakfast bread is loaded with blueberries. It really is a fabulous blend of banana bread and blueberry muffins- two of our favorite special breakfasts! The cinnamon sugar was an extra treat. 🙂

This recipe was adapted from Crazy for Crust. I decreased the sugar and modified the recipe to include whole wheat flour and bake in a convection oven. I also used a Vitamix to blend the liquid ingredients. Nice!

  • 3/4 cup plus 2 T granulated sugar, divided
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/4 teaspoon coarse salt
  • 2 overripe bananas
  • 2 large eggs
  • 7 tablespoons buttermilk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups fresh blueberries
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

  1. Preheat oven to 375°F (on convection, if possible). Grease a 9x5x3” loaf pan with butter or cooking spray.
  2. Cream butter and 3/4 cup sugar with a hand or stand mixer. Set aside.
  3. Add bananas, eggs, milk, vanilla, salt, and baking soda to a blender jar and blend until smooth. (I used a Vitamix)
  4. Pour half the banana mixture into the butter mixture with 1 cup of whole wheat flour. Mix until just incorporated, then add the remaining banana mixture and the all-purpose flour. Mix until just incorporated.
  5. Gently fold in the blueberries. Pour into prepared pan.
  6. Combine 2 T sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl. Sprinkle evenly over the top of the batter.
  7. Bake for 45 to 50 minutes on convection or up to 60 minutes in a standard oven, or until a toothpick comes out with just a few crumbs. The edges will be a dark brown.
  8. Cool completely before removing loaf from pan, but you can cut slices from the pan after it’s cooled for about 15-20 minutes.

The Night Heron actually came and sat at the edge of our diving board… he didn’t go for a swim. 🙂 Great.

  2. Wonderful flavor combination, and beautiful pictures, Josette. I love blueberries, but here in France they aren’t as good or as abundant as in the US. Oh well… I’ll just stare at your pictures and try to imagine the deliciousness…
