Blueberry Banana Bread Topped with an Oatmeal Crumble

Banana bread is a staple of baking, so why not add blueberries and an oatmeal crumble on top to enhance this classic. The blueberries are a delicious combo of tart and sweet, which pairs nicely with the banana base. Then finish the bread off with the oatmeal crumble that adds that oh so satisfying crunch.

  • ¾ cup light brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 6 tablepoons unsalted butter, room temperature

  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • 2 bananas, ripe and mashed
  • 1 pound fresh blueberries

For Topping:

  • ½ cup old fashioned rolled aats
  • ¼ cup light brown sugar
  • ½ teaspoon of salt


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F and line a 9x5 baking dish with parchment paper.
  2. In a medium bowl, mix flour, baking powder and salt together.
  3. In a large bowl using a hand mixer, mix sugar and butter until well combined. Add in eggs, banana and mix well.
  4. Mix in dry ingredients a little at a time until fully incorporated. Then with a wooden spoon add in blueberries and mix carefully. Pour into the prepared pan.
  5. For Topping: In a medium bowl mix oats, sugar and salt. Top banana mixture generously.
