Banana & Blueberry Loaf

I made this old family favourite today after I noticed I had some over ripe bananas in my fruit bowl and some frozen blueberries in my freezer. This version is low in fat and low in kilojoules :)

Preparation time: 20 minutes
Cooking time: 60 minutes


Melted butter, to grease (or spray can oil)
½ cup mashed overipe banana
½ cup caster sugar
140g carton apple fruit puree
2 eggs (room temperature)
½ cup reduced fat milk
1 tablespoon light olive oil or vegetable oil
3/4 cup wholemeal self-raising flour
3/4 cup white self-raising flour
3/4 cup fresh or thawed frozen blueberries


Preheat oven to 180°C. Brush a 6cm deep, 9.5 x 20cm (base measurement) loaf pan with melted butter to lightly grease. Line base and 2 long sides with non-stick baking paper.

Combine the banana, sugar, apple puree, eggs, milk and oil in a large bowl.

Sift over the combined flours. Add the husks from the sieve. Use a large metal spoon to fold the flour into the banana mixture until just combined. Add the blueberries and gently fold.

Spoon the mixture into prepared pan and smooth the surface. Bake in oven for 1 hour or until a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean. Remove from oven and set aside for 10 minutes. Turn onto a wire rack to cool completely. Cut into slices to serve
