Lemon Blueberry Banana Loaf

I woke up this morning craving banana bread and decided to bake a couple to take on vacation. I found a recipe for banana bread on Chocolate Covered Katie and modified it to what I had and removed the oil. It’s still moist, soft, and spongy and I decided to add lemon and blueberry to make it a little different and fresh. Plus Josh was eating a blueberry muffin from Whole Foods that I was jealous of, so I decided to make my own. They turned out to be really tasty and it’s a fun spin on a normal banana bread.
