How Long Does Blueberry Banana Bread Last

Typically Blueberry Banana Bread will last about 1 week or up to 2 weeks in the refrigerator. Make sure to keep the bread wrapped well in an airtight container or in a freezer bag.

Why Do the Blueberries Get Coated in Flour

Before adding the blueberries to the banana bread batter, you want to coat them in flour. Coating the blueberries help to keep the berries in place instead of letting the blueberries sink to the bottom of the bread.
