If you have ripe bananas in your house, or one’s that are going fast, don’t let them go to waste. This Cinnamon Blueberry Bread is the exact recipe to use up those browning bananas. It’s slightly sweet without making you feel like you’re just ingesting a ton of sugar, and it makes amazing slices of warm bread that are only two Weight Watchers points each. That’s it! 

By using mashed bananas, you’ve eliminated the need for high fat products like butter or oil in this recipe, which is one way to keep the calories and points low. The bananas add sweetness and a moist texture without overpowering the cinnamon blueberry flavor. The blueberries are definitely the highlight of this bread. Make sure to use frozen wild blueberries if you can, instead of fresh. They’re smaller and pack more of a flavor punch. Cinnamon finishes off the flavor profile of this snacking bread and just enhances the natural flavor of the blueberries. 

Three reasons why you need to make this recipe!

It’s a great afternoon pick-me-up! 

With a hot cup of coffee or tea, you can healthily reenergize your body with a slice of this cinnamon blueberry bread. One slice is only six grams of sugar, and with the fiber that each slice has, it won’t leave you with an energy crash. 

Cinnamon Blueberry Bread is a great alternative to traditional banana bread. 

Yes, browning bananas are supposed to be for banana bread, but with the delicious flavor that cinnamon blueberry bread has, it’s a needed swap! Don’t get stuck in a banana bread rut.

Different ways to change up this recipe: 

  • I am sure you can sub in fresh blueberries if that is all you have. I just like the texture and flavor of frozen wild blueberries. If you find
  • Toast a piece of this cinnamon blueberry bread and add some spray butter, and a drizzle of sugar-free caramel syrup for a fun low calorie dessert. 
  • Add Lily’s No Sugar Added white chocolate baking chips! White chocolate will add sweetness without adding a ton of sugar, and it pairs amazingly with blueberries and cinnamon. 

Tips and Tricks for Making Cinnamon Blueberry Bread: 

  • If you find your blueberries are falling to the bottom of the loaf, the next time you make the loaf, fold in the blueberries with the all purpose flour mix before adding it to the batter. The flour coats the blueberries and allows them to hold their place in the loaf while baking. 
  • Freeze this loaf, whole or sliced, for up to three months as long as you store it well in a ziploc freezer bag. 
  • You can store cinnamon blueberry bread on the counter for a few days, but it will keep longer (up to seven days) if you store it in the fridge.

  1. I am SO making this tomorrow morning. I don’t have liquid whites. How many egg whites should I use?

  2. This was great. I had some Kodiak mix on hand and used it in place of the flour. I will definitely make again, maybe with chocolate chips!!

  3. i have made this several times. it is my favorite loaf.Going to try your other loaf recipes soon!!

  4. Your double chocolate banana bread is always in my freezer when I need a chocolate fix. I think I am going to make these into muffins. Thanks for continuing to put together point friendly muffins with a minimum of artificial ingredients . I don’t mind subbing out when needed but it is great to see food that is point friendly made without them.

    1. Hi Karen, thanks for the kind words 🙂 so glad you enjoy the loaf and yes they would be great as muffins too 🙂

  5. Hi. I have two of these in the oven now. They’re the same size – used my WW food scale to weigh! – but after 50 minutes they’re still not done. Going to need about another 6-8 minutes by my calculation. Is it because I’m cooking two at the same time? Smells delicious!

    1. Hi Sharmaine, it could be.. I never really bake 2 at a time..also ovens can vary in temps too.. Hopefully, they came out well and you enjoyed them 🙂
