Wild Blueberry Banana Bread

This gluten free banana bread is moist and delicious! The perfect breakfast treat!

This month over on my Healthy Aperture column I’m sharing a recipe for an easy to make Wild Blueberry Banana Bread. As you know, I usually don’t venture much into baking, but I was getting sick of my usual breakfast (peanut butter toast) and needed a change.

This gluten and dairy free recipe was simple enough. Just combine all the ingredients together and bake. Right up my alley! I used a mix of almond and coconut flour because my all-purpose flour was not super fresh. I did have some whole wheat flour in the house, but wow, that stuff is hard to bake with. I’ve tried adding it to recipes and they end up tasting like wheat bricks! For some reason I get a better turnout when baking with gluten free flours.

Wild blueberries are also a favorite in our house. They sweeten just enough and allow me to use less sugar. Plus, the flavor isn’t super overpowering. Of course they’re also crazy healthy! Recent research even shows they have mood boosting effects. What better way to start the day, right?

Make this Wild Blueberry Crumb Cake for someone you love!

Valentine’s Day is kind of a big deal in my house for a couple of reasons. For one, Norah and I get jewelry. What girl doesn’t love that? We also start the day with a super special breakfast. So not only do we celebrate with lots of love, it’s also special enough an occasion for me to actually bake something. And that’s saying a lot coming from me.

Breakfast usually includes something sweet and usually something Norah and I can make together. French toast and pancakes are regular features, but we’ve made a few smoothies and even an egg casserole one year.

One thing Norah knows will always be a hit with Dad is cake! This year we’re making this Wild Blueberry Crumb Cake. We are huge wild blueberry fans at our house and love how they add a gorgeous pop of color (while sneaking in some antioxidants, too). A few other healthy swaps make this a clean-eating breakfast treat. Plus, the recipe is basically foolproof. It’s a one bowl crumb cake that even this non-baker can throw together!

On most days it’s a no-no to have cake for breakfast. We make an exception for holidays. And crumb cake.

Belgian Waffles with Wild Blueberry Cream

Belgian Waffles with Wild Blueberry Mascarpone Cream

These Belgian Waffles with Wild Blueberry Mascarpone Cream are a delicious holiday worthy breakfast!

Waffles are something I rarely make at home, especially from scratch. Norah is more of a pancake gal and waffles hardly seem worth the effort. This Belgian Waffle with Wild Blueberry Cream is definitely the exception.

A crispy Belgian waffle is topped with a creamy mascarpone Wild Blueberry spread and homemade no-bake granola. My almond oat granola is a staple in my house for topping chia seed pudding or Greek yogurt. It has a wonderful crunch and it’s relatively healthy compared to your average baked granola. It’s also a no-bake recipe which is awesome because and you know how I feel about baking. 🙂

The Wild Blueberry mascarpone cheese is similar to whipped cream, but a little thicker and much more decadent.

Belgian Waffles with Wild Blueberry Cream

This recipe was super easy to make and it’s surprisingly low in sugar. Instead of syrup, I mixed the mascarpone cheese with the Wild Blueberries and just a about a tablespoon of real maple syrup.

Waffles are perfect for the holidays, of course, but they’re also fun to treat someone you love.  You can even save time and use frozen Belgian waffles — bonus!
