Meal Idea Monday: Healthy Blueberry Coffee Cake

8 Aug

Good morning, everyone! I have a delicious breakfast recipe for Healthy Blueberry Coffee Cake to share with you today. It comes from my friend Katie’s blog, Intentionally Katie. Now, I know I’m biased since she’s my friend, but I just have to tell you that her blog is amazing and so is she. She’s all about being intentional and making every moment count, which is so important in life. She even has a section dedicated to tried and true recipes her family loves. So be sure to check out her blog, and see what other yummy recipes enjoys.

Then go and make this blueberry coffee cake and brighten someone’s morning!

HEALTHY BLUEBERRY COFFEE CAKE

Ingredients:

2 tablespoons butter, at room temperature
2 tablespoons canola oil
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup plain nonfat yogurt
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup whole-wheat flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1 cup fresh blueberries, or frozen and thawed

Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray an 8-inch square cake pan with cooking spray.
2. In a large bowl, beat the brown sugar, butter and oil until fluffy. Beat in the eggs, 1 at a time, beating until fully combined. Beat in the vanilla and yogurt.

3. In a separate bowl, whisk together the all-purpose and whole-wheat flours, the baking soda and salt. Add the flour mixture to the wet mixture, in 2 batches, stirring until just combined. (do not overmix or your coffee cake will be tough)

4. In a separate small bowl, stir together the granulated sugar, cinnamon and walnuts.

5. Spread half of the batter into the prepared pan. Sprinkle half of the nut mixture over the batter and top with the blueberries, gently pressing them into the batter. Spoon the rest of the batter into the pan, smoothing the top. Sprinkle the remaining nut mixture over the cake, pressing gently. Bake until a wooden toothpick inserted in center comes out clean, about 30 to 35 minutes. Let cool slightly and cut the cake into 2-inch squares. Enjoy!
