My kids have always loved any type of fruit muffin that I make so I started making them all the time and then they started getting bored. You know how kids are, they change their minds often. Then I thought it would be a great idea to make breads to change things up a bit. They have loved having quick breads for breakfast and I love making them.
I like to stock the freezer a few times a year with different muffins, Pancakes, waffles, homemade Applesauce and quick breads to make breakfast and snack time super easy during our busy schedules.

How to Serve Blueberry Bread
We enjoy homemade quick breads like this healthy blueberry bread as breakfast, lunches or snacks. Everyone in our house loves it and we make it often.
Depending on my mood, sometimes I add just a little bit of butter on top of the bread, but most of the time I just cut a slice and enjoy it alone. It really doesn’t need anything extra to make it taste amazing, it is amazing as it is.
How to Store Quick Bread
To maximize the life of homemade fresh blueberry bread, wrap the bread with foil or plastic wrap, or place the bread in a plastic bag to prevent drying out. Store it on the counter or in the fridge. Properly stored, freshly baked quick bread will last for 2-4 days at normal room temperature. You can extend the life a little bit longer if you store it in the fridge.
How to Freeze Blueberry Bread
Because my kids devour this bread, it is another one that I always make at least 2 loaves at a time. To save my sanity, there are times that I make 4-5 loafs at one time and then put them in the freezer. Freezing this blueberry bread is so easy.
This bread will stay fresh in the freezer for up to 6 months. When you want to enjoy this bread, remove it from the freezer the night before and stick it in the fridge. Then once it is thawed out you can enjoy it the same way you do when it is fresh from the oven.
There are a few different ways to go about freezing the bread. You can freeze the whole loaf or freeze it in slices.
Free a whole loaf of quick bread. To freeze the whole loaf allow the bread to cool completely. Once cooled wrap the loaf in tin foil, then place in a freezer bag and squeeze the air our before putting into the freezer. It will keep in the freezer for up to 4 months.
Freeze quick bread in slices. If you prefer to freeze it in slices, allow the bread to cool completely. Slice the bread into slices and wrap each slice in tin foil. Then put the wrapped slices into a freezer bag and squeeze the air our before putting into the freezer. It will keep in the freezer for up to 4 months.
Tips for Making blueberry bread
Always carefully measure your flour. When you are making breads it is important to have the proper flour measurement. If you have more flour then it will become dense, if you have to little it will not bake and will be soggy.
Room temperature Blueberries. If you are using fresh blueberries they will bake much better in the bread if they are room temperature when you put them in the oven. If you are using frozen blueberries do not let them thaw.
Dry the Blueberries. After washing them be sure to dry them thoroughly. You do not wanted added moisture in the bread.
Do NOT Over mix. Once the batter is mixed, fold in the blueberries and then pour the blueberry muffin bread mixture into the bread pan. Over mixing will cause the bread to be tough and bake unevenly.
Greasing the pan enough. When you are greasing the baking pan be sure you grease it well. I like to use non stick cooking spray as I am able to easily get in the corners of the baking pan.
