Blueberry banana bread

This banana bread is a twist on a classic; with 2 cups of wholemeal flour, and some hidden veggies, this recipe is better for you and your family. Perfect for a simple picnic, and leftovers can be dished out for mid-morning snacks throughout the week.

Prep time 10 mins
Cook time 60 mins
Servings 12


  • 2 cups wholemeal flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp sea salt
  • 1 cup frozen blueberries, unthawed
  • 1 ½ cups grated zucchini
  • 2 ripe bananas, mashed (1/2 cup)
  • 1/3 cup reduced fat milk, or So Good™ Soy or Almond Milk
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1/2 cup light flavoured olive oil
  • 2 large eggs
  • 6 Weet-Bix™, crushed


  1. Preheat oven to 180°C (350°F). Lightly coat a loaf tin (23 x 13 cm) with cooking spray, line base and two long sides with a strip of baking paper.
  2. Combine flour, baking powder and salt in a large bowl. Add blueberries and toss to coat.
  3. Whisk wet ingredients (zucchini, banana, milk, maple syrup, olive oil and eggs) in a separate bowl. Stir through Weet-Bix to moisten.
  4. Add wet mixture to dry, and fold until just combined to create a thick batter. Spread into prepared pan.
  5. Bake 60 – 65 minutes, until top is firm and a skewer inserted into the centre of the loaf comes out clean – cover with foil during the last 20 minutes if top is browning too quickly.
  6. Cool in tin 5 mins, then turn out on to a rack to cool completely before slicing.


  • Make the loaf ahead of time and freeze individual slices for a great mid-morning or after-school snack.
  • Zucchini can be substituted with an equal quantity of grated carrot.
