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

This bread tasted a bit healthier than I had imagined. It isn’t too sweet, has a lot of oats. It’s probably a good breakfast bread. This wasn’t my favorite blueberry recipe, but I think it might just be a personal preference. I did like how it looked.

 

The recipe Buns in My Oven used was adapted from Betty Crocker. I ended up using the Betty Crocker one with some modifications after reading some of the comments.

On another note, there’s still time to enter my panda cookies giveaway which you can read about here.

  1. 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!

  2. 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.
