Loaded with berries and made with whole wheat, my Wholesome Blueberry Coffee Cake is moist, lightly sweet and absolutely delicious!
There is something pretty special about long summer days. I can’t really explain it.
I think it has to do with the amount of sunlight you get. And also the amount of satisfaction in knowing you spend the day outside breathing in fresh air soaking up the sun’s rays.
One of my favorite totally dorky things to do in the summer is to ask Google what time the sun rises. Then I wake up early, grab some coffee and a slice of coffee cake, and watch the sunrise on our deck in my PJs. Let me tell you there is no better way to start a new day and find total zen.
Summer has officially started in Minneapolis. With temperatures in the 80s (90s this weekend 😲) and clear sunny skies, we are in full summer live-it-up mode! For us that means, going to festivals, fairs, parks, lakes, splash pads, patios and markets. Eating and cooking outside. Exercising, working outside, eating fruit, going to the lake… basically doing all the amazing things there are to do in the summer time in Minnesota.
And one thing that starts our day off on the right foot, is have a simple wholesome breakfast right as we roll out of bed. Although I don’t mind cooking up breakfast in the morning, I have to admit that waking up to this Wholesome Blueberry Coffee Cake is pretty darn sweet and convenient.
Here is the deal at my house. My husband is a traditionalist when it comes to coffee cake. He prefers his cake basic with a little cinnamon and a hearty crumble. I, on the hand, adore throwing fruit in mine. I mean why not have your cake and fruit all at the same time right!?
This coffee cake in particular is different from most because it’s…
2. Healthy with whole wheat flour
3. Has 2 cups of blueberries.
The result is a moist, airy and berry-packed breakfast that satisfies your morning sweet tooth but doesn’t make you feel gross nor packs on the unnecessary calories.
A quick slice of this coffee cake with a dollop of yogurt and a mug of coffee is a truly ideal way to start any magical summer morning.
