Buttermilk moistens baked goods and allows you to cut back on butter or oils. It also adds a slight tanginess to the bananas and blueberries. This recipe is easy to make and is a healthier substitute for higher sugar and fat you typically have in non-yeast bread recipes.

Make ahead tip: Wrap and store at room temperature for up to 2 days or freeze for up to 3 months.
Ingredient note: Whole-wheat pastry flour, lower in protein than regular whole-wheat flour, has less gluten-forming potential, making it a better choice for tender baked goods. You can find it in the natural-foods section of supermarkets.
