From the author, Renee Press: So, I was sitting on our deck, dreaming about the fresh blueberries I had just picked up, and all of a sudden it hit me: blueberry bread! To be fair, this is somewhere between blueberry bread and blueberry cake, but it has just the right sweetness (with no refined sugar), the right crumb (see above), and is unbelievably moist. It is without a doubt one of the best vegan sweet treats I have made yet, and to top it off, so simple. It’s a really basic recipe, so feel free to add more cinnamon, nuts, extra fruit, crumbs, etc., and know you can use ANY berry or fruit and it would be delicious. I love this Blueberry Breakfast Bread!
⅓cupof oilI used avocado, but any neutral oil or melted coconut would be ok, if you prefer oil-free you can try applesauce instead
1 ½cupsof fresh blueberries
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F, and lightly oil a 9"x9" pan or standard loaf pan. Mix the all-purpose flour (or gluten-free all-purpose flour), baking powder, salt, and cinnamon in a mixing bowl. Add the vanilla extract, plant-based milk, maple syrup, and oil and mix thoroughly. Add blueberries and stir to fold in.
Pour the batter into a baking pan and bake for 20 to 25 min (time in a 9"x9" pan) or until knife inserted into the center comes out clean and top is golden brown. Let cool before cutting, and enjoy!
