This Banana and Blueberry Quick bread would be a great addition to breakfast any day of the week! It's ready in about an hour and it's so good served warm with some butter smeared on each slice. My daughter also loves bringing it for snack at school, or eating it after school when she gets home. 

I love most any banana quick bread recipe, but this one is especially good with the blueberries, oats and pecans added in!

Frozen blueberries are such a great freezer staple! In addition to this bread, we also love using them to make these Blueberry White Chocolate Chip Cookies or this Easy Triple Berry Cobbler!

Recipe tips:

  • If you don't have store bought buttermilk, make your own! Using a 1/2 cup measuring cup, add 1/2 tablespoon vinegar or lemon juice and enough milk to fill the cup, stir slightly and let set for 5 minutes.
  • This bread can be frozen for up to two months. Wrap tightly in some plastic wrap, then wrap in aluminum foil. Thaw and serve.

Blueberry Banana Bread


  • ½ cup quick oats
  • ½ cup buttermilk
  • ¾ cup frozen blueberries
  • 1 ¾ cups all purpose flour, plus 1 tablespoon for blueberries
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup butter, room temperature
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 very ripe bananas
  • ½ cup chopped pecans


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Prepare a 9x5 loaf pan with parchment paper spritzed with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. Mix the oats with buttermilk and allow to soak for at least 10 minutes.
  3. Toss the blueberries in 1 tablespoon flour. Set aside.
  4. Stir together the remaining flour, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
  5. In a large mixing bowl, beat the butter with an electric mixer until fluffy, about 5 minutes. Add the sugar and beat until well blended. Add the eggs and bananas. Continue mixing until combined.
  6. Scrape down the bowl and add the flour mixture. Mix just until evenly blended.
  7. Fold in the blueberries and pecans, leaving some for the topping.
  8. Transfer to the prepared loaf pan and spread evenly. Top with remaining blueberries and pecans.
  9. Bake for 55 to 60 minutes or until a toothpick or cake tester inserted in the middle comes out clean.
  10. Remove the loaf from the oven and let it cool on a wire rack for 10 minutes. Remove the loaf from the pan by lifting the parchment paper. Allow the bread to cool completely before slicing.
