Quick and easy to mix up - no mixer needed. Dried blueberries are my favorite; they can be pricey, but good for you and flavor is so good with bananas here. Taste is great. I love the fact that the recipe only uses 2 Tblsp. of butter, yet it is not missed. This is a winner in my book. I've made it several times and it always turns out great.
