whole wheat banana blueberry buttermilk bread
3/4 cup low-fat buttermilk
3/4 cup packed light brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup applesauce
2 large eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup mashed ripe bananas (3 medium)
1 1/4 cups whole wheat flour
1 cup white whole wheat flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
3/4 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
1 1/4 cups blueberries
preheat oven to 375 degrees. lightly grease a loaf pan with cooking spray.
in a large bowl, mix buttermilk, brown sugar, apple sauce, vanilla, and eggs. stir in mashed bananas until well-mixed.
in a separate bowl, whisk flours, baking powder, cinnamon, baking soda, salt, and nutmeg.
add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, stirring just until combined. fold in blueberries and pour batter into pan.
bake for 70 - 75 minutes until top is brown and inserted toothpick comes out clean (i covered the top with tinfoil at 50 minutes and then checked for doneness with a toothpick every 5 minutes until done at 70 minutes). cool for 10 minutes before removing from pan and cooling completely on a wire rack.
