Whole Wheat Blueberry Bread

I am back!

I have spent the last 2 weeks on the east coast of the United States, in New York City and Cape Cod, and I have literally fallen in love with the so famous “big apple”. The city has just possessed me and it was SO hard to leave.

I could easily see myself spending my whole life in the city that never sleeps. It has that vibe and personality that I have rarely found in any other places that I have visited (and I travel quite a lot).

I will share with you some of the pictures I have taken, specially of the delicious food that I ate there: pancakes, waffles, burgers, steaks, cupcakes…and more more more!

Back to Shanghai is DIET time! Cause, believe me, I have gained 2 kilos over my vacation and these 2 kilos need to LEAVE my body ASAP!

Sorry for screaming…

So to bring some healthy food onto my dining table I have baked this delish blueberry bread with oats and whole wheat flour. Give this baby a try!

Here are the instructions 🙂

Ingredients (make one loaf):

  • 1 cup fresh blueberries
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup + 1 tsp of butter
  • 1-1/4 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 cup oats
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tbsp lemon zest
  • 1 large ripe banana
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar

Preheat oven at 190 C (350 F)

In a bowl of your electric mixer beat up the brown sugar with the butter
