Name a food that’s a rich source of antioxidants, fiber and vitamins and still absolutely delicious. Yes, Blueberries. They definitely break the rule, “What’s good for you, doesn’t taste good.” You don’t have to have those chewy, high fiber, low sugar cereals for breakfast any more. Here’s a healthy blueberry bread that’s good in the early hours of the morning or as an afternoon snack. You can make it richer with the streusel topping, definitely optional.
Ingredients for the bread:
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
In a bowl combine the flour, baking powder, sugar and salt. Give it a little toss so it’s aerated some.
In a separate bowl combine the vanilla extract, milk and oil. Mix it all together.
If you are using frozen blueberries, toss them in a little bit of flour. This will prevent them from sinking to the bottom. Fresh blueberries will hold up fine. Add the blueberries and the wet ingredients to the dry ones. Add the egg substitute as well. Fold it together until they are all barely mixed. Just use a spatula, not a mixer.
Grease a 9″x5″ bread pan and sprinkle some flour on the bottom and the sides. Add all the batter in and bake it for 55 to 75 minutes. I give a range, because ovens vary a lot, so please do the toothpick test. Insert it at the center and if it come out clean, the bread is done. Let it cool for a little bit and it’s ready to have.
Now, if you’d like the Streusel Topping, here’s how:
Crumble up the butter with a fork or a knife. Combine all the other ingredients.
Before you bake your bread, just spread this topping on the batter and then bake. That’s it.
