Peanut Butter Blueberry Banana Bread Recipe

It’s Secret Recipe Club time again. Are you as excited as I am? This month I got to drool over the fabulous recipes at Kate’s Kitchen. This coffee crusted pork roast sounds to die for and I can’t wait to try her, asian chicken salad. And did I mention she has a fabulous Sous Chef. I’m totally jealous.

I saw some fresh blueberries at the store and I couldn’t help but pick up a container. It was by far my best decision of the day. The blueberries were the perfect addition.

She cracked my one room temperature egg on to the counter RIGHT beside the bowl sooooo I threw in a banana instead.
