This Blueberry Banana Bread is warm, hearty, crunchy and a little doughy. And it's delicious right out of the oven or refrigerated overnight.

Notes

I’ve tested this recipe with almond flour and it does NOT work well. Others have subbed the same ratio of cassava flour for all-purpose flour and it turned out great. Monkfruit sweetener has also been used and enjoyed.
Spread some almond butter on a slice, toast it and sip on your morning coffee, or let it cool. Refrigerate a slice and enjoy chilled.
