Blueberry Banana Bread

Blueberry Banana Bread is a nice change up to your traditional banana bread. Kind of a cross between a muffin and a quick bread, you will have trouble deciding whether this is breakfast or dessert!

My kids finally left enough bananas alone for one time in their short lives for me to make banana bread again. It happens so rarely that I feel a compulsive need to write it down.

Seriously, these boys go through an amazing amount of bananas, and now that summer is here? Forget it. I can buy three bunches of bananas at the store, and they will be gone before the first brown spot even threatens to show its face.

Yesterday was our turn to host our family Sunday dinner, and I needed something sweet to whip up that was fast, and used what I had on hand.

This blueberry banana bread, which is a variation on my usual banana bread, was perfect! The lemon cream cheese glaze added a little extra sweetness, and made it a bit desserty instead of just snacky or breakfasty. YouGotThaty?

I even made a totally optional blueberry sauce to top it with too, which put it WAY over the top good.

For our main dish we did our very first rotisserie chickens! How did I live for 32 years without a rotisserie in my life???

I LOVE Costco’s rotisserie chickens, but this way WAY beyond that. The texture was much better, as we didn’t inject the chicken with any flavorings. Next time, we’re going to brine the birds, and smoke them for a while before finishing them off on the rotisserie. Yay summer grilling season!
