Quick and Easy Blueberry Banana Whole Wheat Loaf

2 very ripe bananas. Half an avocado and a opened tub of  plain yogurt. Handful of blueberries. An easy way to use them all up is to dump them all into a simple mix and bake up a loaf. Made with half whole wheat flour, the recipe is per usual, kind of dense. Combine that with very ripe banana, its also slightly mushy. Avocado and olive oil act as the fat here, and honey replaced sugar. The output was a short thick loaf, not the yummiest of bakes but fragrant and good enough that we finished 4 slices in 1 seating. Plus it's a healthy breakfast alternative!
