Banana Blueberry Bread (or muffins)

This bread is so moist.

Thanks to the three, large, and very ripe bananas I used. By the way, the more ripe the bananas, the better they are for baking. If you have extra ripe bananas that you haven’t been able to use, you can peel them and and freeze them for whenever you need to use them.
