Banana Blueberry Nut Bread

OK...I have a serious is snowing! I am not a happy camper...although I know better this early in the season, I had my mind set on warm weather! The grass is green, the birds have been chirping, the trees and bushes are blooming...and now snow, UGH! So what is a spring fever momma to do? BAKE! That's what I'll do!  I found a new blog called homeecathome and it is full of great ideas and yummy recipes.  I was looking for a banana bread recipe, I have several, but wanted to try a new one, and came across Faith's Banana Blueberry Nut Bread and it was perfect....go check out her site, you will enjoy it!  And I'm enjoying this bread on a snowy day! 
Banana Blueberry Nut Bread
1/3C butter
3/4C sugar...I used all brown sugar
1 egg
1C, or 3medium, mushed up bananas
1/2C milk
2C sifted flour, I used 1C flour and 1C white wheat flour
1Tbsp baking powder
1/2t salt
1/2C quick cooking oats
1/2tsp vanilla
1C blueberries...I used frozen
3/4C chopped walnuts, optional
Preheat oven to 325. Grease and flour 2 regular bread pans, or 1 large loaf pan. Cream together butter and sugar. Beat in egg, bananas, and milk. Measure flour, reserving 2T to coat the blueberries. Stir baking powder and salt into flour mixing well. Stir in oats. Add flour mixture into wet mixture and stir. Stir in vanilla.  Add reserved 2T flour to blueberries and mix and fold into batter. If using nuts, add them in to the batter.  Transfer batter to bread pan(s). I like to generously sprinkle cinnamon/sugar over the top of the batter before baking, that always makes things better! Bake for 50min, if using one large pan, add 5-8min to the cooking time. Cool on a wire rack.
I used a large bread pan and it took about 60-65min
