Low Carb Blueberry Bread

Monday, May 14, 2012

One of my Dad's favorite treats is Blueberry Bread. Mine too! I had to tweak the original recipe to make it more nutritionally friendly.

Low Carb Blueberry Bread

1 cup white flour

1 cup whole wheat flour

1/2 cup shredded what bran cereal (crushed)

12 tsp. Splenda Brown Sugar blend (you CAN use regular brown sugar, too ... but that will up the calories a LITTLE)

1/2 tsp baking soda

2 tsp. baking powder

1/2 tsp. salt

3/4 cup oranje juice

1 egg

1 tsp. extra virgin olive oil

1 cup fresh blueberries

Pre-head oven to 350 degrees. Prepare 8-1/2 x 4-1/2 x 3 in. loaf pan by spraying with non-stick cooking spray.

BOWL #1: combine flours, cereal, Splenda Brown Sugar (or brown sugar), baking powder, baking soda and salt. Combine well.

BOWL#2: combine OJ, egg, EVOO. Beat with electric mixer till well blended. Gradually add flour mix (BOWL #1) into wet ingredients (BOWL #2). Stir till moistened. Fold in bludberries GENTLY.

Pour or spoon batter into prepared loaf pan.

Bake about 50 minutes, then check with a toothpick. Insert the toothpick into the center of the bread. The bread is done when the toothpick comes out clean. Depending on your oven's accuracy, you MAY have to let the bread bake another 5 or 10 minutes.

Take the bread out when done and let it cool for 10 minutes in the pan. Remove from pan and allow to finish cooling on a wire rack.

**The bread is great warm, too. Just cuts better when cooled.**

    I use KA White whole wheat flour too.
    The only thing it does not do well is my Yorkshire Puddings Pop-overs to you. I made them on Mothers day in Plattsburgh and i am sure the flour jar has WWW Flour. They did not look right or taste right. They were definitely a different color. I was disappointed DH and our son liked them.
    I NEVER use artificial anything. I get really bad headaches using Splenda I thought I was alone but I am not.
    I use oat bran for many things-like breadcrumbs and fillers for meatloaf and this recipe. HUGS
    I use cooked (microwaved banana for sugar. I will try this my way,I love to experiment. I realise the banana will add to the carbs but I will use the calculator.
    Thanks for the recipe. emoticon emoticon

    Agreed on the King Arthur White Whole Wheat Flour. Love it! I love blueberries and sweet breads so I just might have to try this one!

    Hi Barb........
    This sounds so good. I will try it very soon. I also plan to try the White Whole Wheat Bread that Sheryl suggested.

    I like using the White Whole Wheat Flour for my baking too. It allows a complete replacement of AP flour for all the goodness of whole grain.

    The Blueberry Bread sounds yummy!

    You might look into KING ARTHUR FLOUR for their White Whole Wheat Flour. The benefits of whole wheat with the taste and look of regular unbleached white flour. recipe sounds great...(even though I'm off wheat)

    Sounds amazing and healthier than the red white and blue bread I just had. I know my bad. Adding cranberries to your recipe would make it a better Red white and blue bread.
    Thanks so much for sharing this.

    Have you been "peeking at my Cook Books?" Just kidding....but I have been using CEREAL, with small amounts of Flour, and Nearly NO ADDED SUGARS, for years! I make breakfast muffins, much like your bread! You can change things with bananas, or almost any fruit! Apples and cinnamon...yum!

    This was (cause I am a product of the Depression Age Era PARENTS....cheap, frugal, and never want to throw things out generation) due to the fact, of our daughter never finishing a box of cereal! Now, I MEASURE (which I didn't do before, to get proper servings) and put them into my meals. Try even as breadcrumbs, or "topping" for an Apple Betty, or bread pudding!
