Blueberry Bread

This hearty blueberry bread is a one-bowl quick bread that is made with nuts and oats. It’s not overly sweet so it’s great for breakfast or as an afternoon snack.

Blueberries are finally in season! I love blueberries. I love eating them and I love baking with them. I had seen this blueberry bread from Buns in My Oven a while back and marked it for when blueberries came in season.

The original recipe used was adapted from Betty Crocker and I ended up using the Betty Crocker one with some modifications after reading some of the comments. Like other quick breads, this blueberry bread is very easy to make.

Recipe Tips

  • Some quick breads are almost like cake but this blueberry bread is less sweet and has more texture because it has nuts and oats. So, it’s not a quick bread you can serve for dessert but it’s great for breakfast or a snack.
  • I love how this bread looks with the bright blueberries and oats. It’s very hearty and rustic looking especially if you sprinkle oats over the top of the batter before you bake it.
  • For the blueberries, I prefer to use fresh ones but you can substitute frozen blueberries, too.
  • The bread has chopped walnuts in it but you could substitute almonds or pecans in place of the walnuts. I haven’t tested this recipe without the nuts, so I’m not sure how it would turn out if you omit them.
  • I haven’t tried this recipe with other types of flour and am not sure how it would work. I’ve also shared a Keto Blueberry Bread which you might like if you want a low-carb blueberry bread.
  • You only need one bowl to make this bread. I used my stand mixer, but you can also just mix up the batter with a bowl and spoon.

  1. I think this bread probably does make a good breakfast bread. And you can make it healthier by using wheat flour and apple sauce too.

  2. This bread looks really, really good. I think this would be great for breakfast. I am going to get some blueberries and give this a try!
