This Blueberry Breakfast Bread is somewhere between blueberry bread and blueberry cake, but it has just the right sweetness (with no refined sugar), the right crumb, and is unbelievably moist. It is without a doubt one of the best vegan sweet treats and is surprisingly 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 still be delicious. Make no mistake though, this sweet bread is anything but dull and we cannot wait for you to give it a go!

We love this Blueberry Breakfast Bread and know you will too! It is time to cozy up and do some delicious vegan baking.

This Blueberry Breakfast Bread Is: 

  • Perfect for breakfast or as a treat throughout the day.
  • Kid-approved.
  • Plant-based and Vegan.
  • Easy to make and perfect to bake (plus easy to make an extra loaf to share).

When in Season…

This Blueberry Breakfast Bread recipe calls for fresh blueberries, so we encourage you to keep an eye on those berry sales whenever you visit your local grocery store. This happens usually when they are in season and the harvest is in full swing.

This advice applies to any seasonal vegetable or fruit you’re after. It will not only support your local farmers, but it will also save you a lot of money and taste. That’s right, buying seasonal produce will ensure you have the ripest and most flavorful fruits and vegetables.
