This moist, delightful, blueberry banana bread has a sweet crumbly streusel topping!


At some point there are always bananas in my house. I am a self admitted banana fanatic. I think Curious George may be the only one who loves bananas more than I.


I put them in everything – on my cereal, in my smoothies, on my toast with some peanut butter (Mmmmm). I must admit (I feel like I’m going to make a lot of confessions on this blog) that at times I have been known to let a banana or two spoil. It is so sad to throw away a ripe, mushy banana so…I bake.


Today I decided to make some blueberry banana bread. I wanted to kick things up a notch so tossed in some blueberries and topped it off with a nice streusel topping to give it more texture and crunch.  


This banana bread had my whole house smelling like a gourmet bakery. I just wanted to bottle up that scent and spray it all over myself errry day. 


I promise – this blueberry banana bread will NOT disappoint!

Moist, delightful, blueberry banana bread with a sweet crumbly streusel topping.
Prep Time 15 mins
Cook Time 55 mins


  • 2-3 medium ripe bananas mashed
  • 3/4 cup coconut palm sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil melted
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg optional
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 2 cups gluten free or all purpose flour
  • 1 cup fresh or frozen blueberries

For Streusel topping

  • 1 tablespoon gluten free or all purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons coconut palm sugar
  • 2 tablespoons quick oats
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil melted


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a loaf pan or line with parchment paper. Set aside.
  • In large mixing bowl add mashed bananas, sugar, salt and egg. Stir well to combine. Drizzle in melted coconut oil, stirring constantly. Add the cinnamon and stir to combine.
  • Mix together the baking soda and water and then add to the other ingredients. Stir well.
  • Add the flour to the mixing bowl and stir until JUST moistened (over mixing will create a dense bread). Gently fold in the blueberries and stir JUST to combine.
  • Pour the batter into greased loaf pan.

For Streusel Topping

  • In a small mixing bowl, combine the flour, sugar and oatmeal.
  • Add melted coconut oil and stir well. Gently drop the topping all over the batter in the loaf pan.
  • Place the bread into the oven and bake for 50-60 minutes or until a toothpick or knife inserted in the center of the bread comes out clean.


If you don't have quick oats any oats will do.
