For The Love Of Blueberries, Blueberry Comfort Bread


This blueberry bread will fill your home with a comforting aroma.  The ingredients are healthy, with the exception of sugar 🙂  This recipe hits on a few of my favorite foods: yogurt, oatmeal, applesauce and blueberries.  It’s dense, moist and filling. Just one slice is all I need to get me through the morning (coupled w/ coffee, of course).

Blueberry Comfort Bread


1 1/2 cups whole wheat pastry flour

1 cup of oats (I used old fashioned, but could use quick cooking)

1/2 cup coconut flour

2 teaspoons baking powder

1 teaspoon cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 1/2 cups plain yogurt (could use low fat – I didn’t)

1/3 cup applesauce

2 large eggs

2 teaspoons vanilla

1 1/2 cups blueberries


Preheat oven to 350.  Grease a loaf pan w/ non-stick spray or butter & flour.

In medium bowl whisk dry ingredients: whole wheat flour, oats, sugar, coconut flour, baking powder, cinnamon, baking soda and salt.

In a separate bowl beat together: yogurt, applesauce, vanilla and eggs.  Slowly add dry ingredients until just combined.

Next, gently fold in blueberries and pour into prepared pan.  Bake 50-60 minutes until toothpick comes out clean.  Cool completely before serving, and enjoy 🙂
