Banana bread is one of my ‘go-to’ foods, even when I’m on my PALEO (Whole30) life journey.  It’s not really the main course food and also is not sweet enough to serve as dessert.  Well, maybe it is!  Banana bread is really a snack food, I think, one loaded with great taste and nutrition. 

WHAT IS THE NUTRITIONAL VALUE OF PALEO BANANA BREAD WITH BLUEBERRIES?

The added blueberries in this recipe add flavour, moisture, and nutrition.  Blueberries are packed with antioxidants and phytoflavinoids.  They are are also high in potassium and vitamin C.  For these reasons blueberries help to lower your risk of heart disease and cancer and are also anti-inflammatory.

We know now that a banana a day is better for you than an apple!  Bananas are packed with potassium, fiber, and natural sugars.  Possessing vitamin C, fiber, potassium, and other vitamins and minerals, bananas help to maintain overall good heart health.  They are considered a super food!

WHAT WINE PAIRED WITH PALEO WHOLE30 BANANA BREAD WITH BLUEBERRIES?

The predominant taste sensation of banana bread with blueberries is sweetness, requiring a sweet wine to match.  Icewine would be far too sweet.  Choose a late harvest wine, such as Late Harvest Riesling, Vidal, or Gewurztraminer.  Just always make sure that the wine is sweeter than all the sweet items on your dessert plate.

The recipe baking temperature and time is an estimate.  Follow your own oven’s temperature and cooking time. It takes a gas oven 10-15 minutes to reach the desired temperature. Electric ovens can take 10 minutes longer than that.  The age of your oven will also determine the temperature, time for roasting or baking, and where you want to place your dish in the oven.  The bottom of your oven may be hotter than the top, depending on its condition.  This also includes where to set your dish under the broiler.  So use your own best judgment based on the type, condition, and age of your oven.  Prep times will also vary depending on how slow or quickly you like to work.
