Beautiful Blueberry Bread

Beautiful Blueberry Bread

Traveling can be tricky when you are trying to make a good lifestyle change. The best way to stay on track is to bring some of your go to items home. If someone has dessert- make sure you have your own sweet to snack on. It is all about planning ahead and keeping your ultimate goal in mind. *Your goal to be a healthier you!* My last tip- Always pack your workout gear and find new places to take a hike, run or bike if possible.
Tomorrow we head to Maryland to go to visit our family! I made Paleo Crunch, Apple Bran Muffins, packed fruits and veggies and ingredients to make Zucchini Lasagna (per my families request). I also worked on a bread. Normally I make a Blueberry buckle that is to die for (sooo not healthy). This was my attempt to make a healthier alternative to that treat. Hopefully my family will approve.
Beautiful Blueberry Bread
Ingredients:
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2 Cup Honey
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
  •  2 1/2 Cup Blanched Almond flour
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 1/2 tsp Baking soda
  • 1 Cup Fresh blueberries

Process:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350
  2. Whisk together the eggs, honey and Vanilla.
  3. Add  in the  flour, salt and baking soda
  4. Fold in the  fresh blueberries, carefully so you don’t break the blueberries open!
  5. Rub coconut oil on a loaf pan and pour in the batter.
  6. Bake for 40-45 minutes until a toothpick comes out clean.
  7. Cool on a cooling rack for 20 minutes
