Huckleberry Banana Bread

Huckleberry Banana Bread


    Huckleberry Swirl:
  • 1 pint huckleberries
  • 1/2 tablepoon agave or honey
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon molasses
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons chia seeds (or you can substitute a little corn starch. The goal is to thicken.)
  • Banana Bread:
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened (coconut oil, if vegan)
  • 1/2 cup minus 2 tablespoons white sugar
  • 2 eggs (chia seed or flax substitute, if vegan)
  • 4 very brown bananas
  • 1/4 cup milk of choice (cow, almond, soy, rice milk, etc…)
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 210 grams (1.75 cups) all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • Pinch of salt


    Huckleberry Swirl
  1. Stir the huckleberries, agave and lemon juice in a bowl and allow to sit for an hour minimum
  2. Purée the huckleberry mixture in a blender or food processor
  3. Combine the huckleberry mixture, molasses and vanilla in a small pot and bring to a simmer
  4. Simmer for 5-7 minutes, stirring occasionally
  5. Remove from heat
  6. Stir in chia seeds and allow to cool
  7. Banana Bread
  8. Beat the butter and sugar together until thoroughly combined
  9. Beat in the eggs one at a time
  10. Add the bananas, milk and vanilla
  11. Continue beating until the mixture is combined — it’s ok to have small chunks of banana
  12. Stir in the last 4 ingredients until just combined
  13. Preheat the oven to 350°F
  14. Grease a bread pan with butter or coconut oil
  15. Pour in just enough banana bread batter to cover the bottom
  16. Spread a large spoonful of huckleberry mixture across the middle, lengthwise
  17. Add more banana bread batter
  18. Add more huckleberries
  19. Add the rest of the banana bread batter
  20. Using a butter knife, run it through the pan just a couple times. We don’t want it to be completely combined, we just want a good swirl
  21. Bake for 50-55 minutes
  22. Allow to cool for 20 minutes, remove from pan and eat.
