Blackberry Banana Bread

This Blackberry Banana bread is moist, full of flavor, and super EASY to make. It is loaded with ripe bananas,  juicy blackberries and only takes 15 minutes to whip up.

Why just make banana bread when you can make Blackberry Banana Bread. I went shopping yesterday and couldn’t pass up these beautiful organic blackberries. So when I noticed that my bananas were starting to get that over ripe look I knew what I wanted to make.

My favorite way to eat this bread is for breakfast or a midday snack. This bread taste wonderful with jam, butter, nut butter and of course by its self. When I have leftovers (which is rare) I make sure they do not go to waste. I cut the bread into slices, wrap them up and then freeze them for later.

Making this Blackberry Banana Bread is super easy to make. First, preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.  Then start with combining the flour, baking powder, baking soda, sugar and salt together in a large bowl. In a separate small bowl mash the bananas together. Add the mashed banana, oil, vanilla, milk and apple cider vinegar together in the large bowl. Whisk the ingredients until you do not see any flour clumps, around 3 minutes.

Fold the blackberries and sliced almonds in with your batter. Pour the batter in your loaf pan and sprinkle with blackberries. You will notice that the blackberries with sink a little but will still show their beautiful color when they come out of the oven. Place in the oven for 45 – 50 minutes. To make sure your loaf is cooked all the way through, stick a toothpick in the middle of your loaf. If it comes out clean without any dough on it, the bread is cooked all the way through.

To avoid sticking, line your pan with parchment paper. Don’t have a loaf pan? Muffin tins will work as well as the loaf pan. Just don’t forget to line your muffin tins with paper cups.

Make it Your Own

  • Add additional toppings to your Blackberry Banana Bread. Some of my favorites include berry jam, butter, and nut butter.
  • Don’t have blackberries? Berries like raspberries, cranberries, strawberries and blueberries can be used as a substitute.
  • If you do not have a loaf pan, muffin tins are great to use as a replacement .
