    Gluten-Free Blueberry Banana Loaf

    High Bush Blueberry Council

    Recipe Courtesy of Jennifer Chong

     

    Ingredients

    • 1 1/2 cups blueberries
    • 4 bananas, sliced (ripe bananas are best)
    • 4 eggs
    • 1/2 cup almond butter
    • 1/4 cup agave syrup
    • 3 tablespoons coconut oil, melted
    • 1 teaspoon lemon rind
    • 3 tablespoons lemon juice
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    • 1 cup coconut flour
    • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
    • 2 teaspoons baking powder
    • 1/4 teaspoon salt

    Instructions

    1. Preheat the oven to 350º. Grease a 9- by 5-inch loaf pan with coconut oil. Rinse and thoroughly dry blueberries; set aside 1/4 cup large berries. 2. In a blender combine bananas, eggs, almond butter, agave syrup, coconut oil, lemon rind and juice, and vanilla and mix well. 3. In a medium-size bowl, stir together the coconut flour, cinnamon, baking powder, and salt. Add banana mixture and stir just until dry ingredients are incorporated. Fold in all but reserved blueberries. 4. Transfer batter to prepared pan; this will not rise as much as a regular loaf so don’t worry about filling it too high. Arrange reserved blueberries on top and press gently into batter (covering about 1/4-inch of berry). 5. Bake 55 to 60 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cover loosely with a sheet of aluminum foil after 40 minutes to prevent over-browning. Remove from oven and transfer to a cooling rack. Cool 10 minutes before slicing.

    Blueberry Pancakes with a Side of Blueberry-Glazed Bacon

    High Bush Blueberry Council

    Ingredients

    • 1 cup blueberry puree, purchased (or use recipe below)
    • 3/4 cup pure maple syrup
    • 1 pound sliced bacon
    • 1-½ cups all-purpose flour
    • 2 tablespoons sugar
    • 1 teaspoon baking powder
    • ½ teaspoon baking soda
    • ½ teaspoon salt
    • 1-1/4 cups buttermilk
    • 1/2 cup milk
    • 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
    • 3 tablespoons melted butter
    • 1 cup fresh or frozen blueberries

    Blueberry Puree

    • 2 cups fresh or frozen blueberries
    • ½ cup water

    Instructions

    1. Heat oven to 350°. In a small bowl combine blueberry puree and maple syrup; remove ½-cup of the mixture and set aside.
    2. Separate bacon slices and place on a rack over a rimmed baking sheet; bake 10 minutes. Remove from oven and brush both sides of the bacon slices with the reserved ½-cup of blueberry-maple mixture. Bake until bacon is crisp and glaze is set, 5 to 10 minutes longer. Cover bacon with foil to keep warm.
    3. In a medium bowl combine flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt. In another bowl stir buttermilk, milk, eggs and melted butter.  Add to the dry ingredients; stir just until combined (do not over mix; a few lumps will remain).
    4. Rub a large nonstick skillet with oil just to coat and heat over medium heat.  Ladle batter onto skillet, using ¼-cup batter for each pancake. Dot each with several blueberries. Cook until bubbles break on the surface, 2 to 3 minutes. Flip and cook until lightly browned, 1 to 2 minutes more. Repeat with remaining batter. Serve with the remaining blueberry-maple syrup mixture and blueberry glazed bacon.

    Instructions

    In a small saucepan, simmer blueberries and water until blueberries begin to pop and release juice, about 5 minutes. Drain blueberries, reserving juice. Place cooked blueberries in a blender or food processor and blend until smooth, adding small amounts of juice, as needed. Yield: 1 cup
