Healthy Blueberry Coffee Cake

on October 16, 2011

Yum. I love healthy and delicious, have you noticed? I love trying new things and combinations. If you want something that is as delicious as it is healthy for a breakfast/brunch recipe, I’ve got you covered. But as is my MO of late, no pics, so sorry my friends. I promise I’ll do better!

Healthy Blueberry Coffee Cake

1-1/3 Cflour

3/4C oatmeal

1tbsp ground flax (optional)

2 tsp baking powder

1/3C sugar

1/2C fat free milk

1/4C applesauce

1/4C vanilla yogurt

1 egg

1C fresh or frozen blueberries

TOPPING:

1/4C oatmeal

3tbsp flour

3tbsp brown sugar

2tbsp cold butter

1tsp cinnamon

 

1. In a large bowl, mix dry ingredients, including sugar.

2. Beat egg, applesauce, yogurt and milk.

3. blend wet and dry ingredients until just moistened. Fold in blueberries.

4. Pre-heat oven to 350F.

5. Pour batter into a greased 9″ pie dish.

6. for topping, using a pastry cutter or 2 knives, cut butter into dry ingredients until it resembles coarse crumbs and sprinkle evenly over top of batter.

7. Bake for 25 to 30 min, or until knife inserted into middle comes out clean.

 

If you like more streusel topping on your coffee cake, you can easily double the quantity. this is delicious and moist, without being overly sweet. The topping makes it seem more decadent than it really is. Yum!
