Blueberry-Banana-Oat Bread

Here is a simple recipe that I tried last week and it was really good. A wonderful bread...enjoy!
2 3/4 Cups Bisquick
2/3 Cup sugar (I used Splenda)
1/3 Cup quick-cooking Oats
1 Cup (3 medium) very ripe bananas
1/4 Cup milk
2 eggs
1 Cup fresh or frozen blueberries
1/2 applesauce

Heat oven to 375 degrees. Spray pan with cooking spray.
In a large bowl, stir Bisquick, sugar, oats, bananas, milk, eggs and applesauce until moist and then beat vigorously for about 30 seconds. Gently stir in the blueberries. Pour all into the loaf pan or 9x13 inch pan.

Bake 45 minutes to 60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool completely before cooking (if you can wait that long!)
This bread is really good the next day and the next. You can also add chopped pecans if you like.
