Blueberry Oatmeal Bread

  • This bread is so moist and delicious!
    And  psssst, it’s pretty healthy too. I lightened it up by using apple sauce and very little oil. Also, there is a ton of protein in this one little loaf because I used Greek yogurt to keep it moist. I love the pretty blue burst of color that the blueberries make when the bread bakes. And slicing into it is kind of like opening up a present. A really, really yummy present.

    This would be a wonderful bread to make for breakfast or brunch on Mother’s Day. It’s delicious, pretty healthy and makes a lovely presentation.

    Blueberry Oatmeal Bread
         makes 1 loaf
    1 C old fashioned oats
    1/2 C oat flour {or blend 1/2 C oats in food processor or blender}
    1 C all purpose flour
    1 tsp cinnamon
    1 1/2 tsp baking power
    1/2 tsp baking soda
    1/4 tsp salt
    1 1/2 C non fat, plain Greek yogurt {I like Chobani}
    1/4 C vegetable oil
    1/4 C unsweetened apple sauce
    2 eggs
    2 tsp vanilla
    3/4 C sugar
    1 C blueberries*

    Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray loaf dish with baking spray with flour in it, such as Baker’s Joy or the Pillsbury brand. In a medium bowl, mix together the oats, oat flour, flour, cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
    In a large bowl, whisk or mix together the yogurt, oil, apple sauce, eggs and vanilla. Add in the sugar and mix.

    *After the blueberries have been washed, mix them with 1-2 tablespoons of the dry ingredient mixture until they are coated. This way, the blueberries won’t sink to the bottom of the bread.

    Add the dry ingredients to the wet a little at a time and gently mix until everything is incorporated. Add the blueberries to batter and gently fold in. Pour batter into a loaf bread pan and bake for 55-60 minutes or until bread is fully cooked and a tooth pick comes out clean.

    Let cool for a few minutes then tip bread out of pan to cool on a cooling rack.

    There is an additional 36 grams of protein in here just by swapping out some of the oil/butter that is normally in quick bread, with the Greek yogurt! It is sweet but not too sweet. And the blueberries add a nice burst of flavor in every bite.

    The other thing I like about this bread is that it is really filling. The oats and oat flour give it a great texture and it fills you up. Also, I didn’t add nuts to this bread but that would add a nice texture too.
