After eating candy non stop over the weekend, I am ready for something a little bit healthier to eat.  Banana Bread with blueberries, oats and yogurt sounds like the way to go.  Although if you have candy to get rid of, this Java Twix Banana Bread is a very good option too.

This Blueberry Banana Bread is full of juicy blueberries in every bite.  You can use fresh berries or frozen ones.  Just use whatever is easiest for you to get this bread in your oven ASAP.  My kids devoured it down in one day.  It makes a good breakfast and a good after school snack.

It is fine by itself, but I added a small drizzle of glaze to the top.  If you don’t want to add the extra bit of sugar, feel free to leave it off.  As with any banana bread, this one was definitely better the next day.  My favorite thing to do is bake the night before, so it is ready to be eaten first thing in the morning.
