Blueberry Oat Loaf

June 24, 2021

 A homemade blueberry oat treat that tastes like a muffin meets loaf! Perfect to pair with coffee!

With a fresh blueberry haul that needs to be enjoyed before going bad, I wanted to try my hand at a blueberry loaf. Something not overly sweet, but with just the right flavor to pair well with coffee - iced or hot. In fact, when I was thinking about exactly what I would love in a slice of bread, I thought it would be fun to bake something with more texture than your typical loaf. Think streusel muffin meets bread.  I am a sucker for oats in desserts. You too? 

I'm happy to report that this blueberry loaf cake turned out quite well, and really does complement a cup of coffee exceptionally. It's just the right hint of sweet with a zing of tart blueberry. Add a slice of butter on top, and it's perfection. As far as texture goes, it's like biting into a muffin in loaf form. The oats show up nicely and give it a unique boost. It's scrumptious, and you should try it out!

  • What You'll Need
    • 2 cups flour + 1 TBSP
    • 1 cup granulated sugar
    • 2 TSP baking powder
    • 1 TSP salt
    • 1/2 cup melted butter
    • 1 cup Greek yogurt
    • 2 eggs
    • 1 TSP vanilla
    • 1 cup blueberries
    • 1/2 cup old-fashioned oats

  • What You'll Do
    • Preheat the oven to 375°. Grease a loaf/bread pan and set aside.
    • Add 1 TBSP flour to a bowl with the blueberries. Gently shake the bowl to coat the blueberries in the flour. This will keep your blueberries from sinking to the bottom of the loaf while baking.
    • In a bowl, combine 2 cups flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Stir well and set aside. 
    • In a separate bowl, combine the melted butter, yogurt, eggs, and vanilla. Whip together until well-combined.
    • Add the flour mixture into the wet mixture. Mix completely.
    • Fold the floured-blueberries and oats into the dough. Gently mix, until the blueberries are nicely dispersed.
    • Pour the thick batter into the prepared loaf pan. Bake for approximately 60 minutes or until a knife is inserted into the middle and comes out clean.
    • Let the loaf cool for about 10 minutes before turing out onto a cooling rack. 
    • Enjoy right away if desired! Be sure to add a slice of butter!
