Blueberry Almond Bread

Blueberry Almond Bread delivers sweet blueberries and almonds three ways for almond lovers. Enjoy the boost of antioxidants, vitamin E, magnesium too!

Welcome to another edition of Bread Bakers. This month we are focusing on healthier breads.

January Challenge

Start the new year with a healthy bread. Bake any bread that you think is ‘Healthy’ — with or without yeast. Some ideas are 100% whole grains, without white sugar, could be gluten free etc etc.

Thanks Pavani from Cook’s Hideout Cook’s Hideout for hosting this event!

I love baking with blueberries. Muffins, pancakes and even cookies taste great with that sweet, tart flavor.

Almonds are also a favorite of mine. I recently discovered by substituting almond flour for some of the all-purpose that you can add texture and more nutrition to your baked goods.

Almond flour is finely ground almonds high in fiber, vitamin E, magnesium and calcium. Add the antioxidant power of blueberries and you really kicked your quick bread up a notch, maybe two ;)!

Not to mention a great almond taste! I use Bob’s Red Mill almond flour. It blends wonderfully and doesn’t clump.

Food for Thought…What healthier ingredients do you substitute in baked goods to add more nutrition? Fruit, nut flours and seeds are some of my favorites. I’d love to hear your ideas in a comment below!
