For the Blueberry Banana Bread:

- 2-3 ripe bananas, mashed

- 2 cups whole wheat flour

- 1 teaspoon baking soda

- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder

- 1/4 teaspoon salt

- 1/4 cup coconut oil, melted

- 1/4 cup honey or maple syrup

- 2 large eggs

- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

- 1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt (low-fat or non-fat)

- 1 cup fresh blueberries

For the Butterfly Pea Swirl:

- 1 tablespoon butterfly pea powder

- 2 tablespoons hot water

- 1 tablespoon Greek yogurt


1. Preheat Your Oven:

- Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C) and grease a 9x5-inch loaf pan.

2. Prepare the Butterfly Pea Swirl:

- In a small bowl, mix the butterfly pea powder and hot water until you have a vivid blue paste. Set it aside to cool. Then, stir in the Greek yogurt to create a vibrant swirl.

3. Combine Dry Ingredients:

- In a medium-sized bowl, whisk together whole wheat flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. This flour choice adds extra fiber and nutrients to your bread.

4. Mix Wet Ingredients:

- In a separate bowl, combine the mashed bananas, melted coconut oil, honey or maple syrup, eggs, vanilla extract, and Greek yogurt. Blend until well incorporated.

5. Combine Wet and Dry Mixtures:

- Gradually add the dry ingredient mixture to the wet ingredients. Stir until just combined.

6. Gently Fold in Blueberries:

- Carefully fold in the fresh blueberries, distributing them evenly throughout the batter.

7. Create the Butterfly Pea Swirl:

- Pour half of the banana bread batter into the prepared loaf pan. Drop spoonfuls of the butterfly pea swirl mixture onto the batter. Use a knife or toothpick to create a marbled effect by gently swirling the pea mixture through the batter.

8. Bake:

- Place the pan in the preheated oven and bake for approximately 50-60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.

9. Cool and Enjoy:

- Once done, remove the banana blueberry bread from the oven and let it cool in the pan for 10-15 minutes. Then, transfer it to a wire rack to cool completely. Slice and savor the combination of wholesome ingredients and the natural beauty of butterfly pea powder in each delightful bite.
