Blueberry Breakfasts

Van's Blueberry Waffles Topped With Peanut Butter and Fresh Blueberries
Cinnamon Oatmeal With Brown Sugar, Almonds, and Blueberries
I love blueberries! Just love them!
Tangy, sweet, and plump little blue rays of taste bud sunshine that make any dish a dessert, especially at breakfast time. Adding them in anything from smoothies, a bowl of cereal, or eating them by the handful, blueberries can really jump start my mornings and late afternoons.
Isn't it a plus that these fat free superheroes are filled with good antioxidants that'll naturally keep a person happy, energized, and healthy in more ways than one? Yay!
Quickie meals like Van's Blueberry Waffles popped in a toaster spread with peanut butter and blueberries or a bowl of oatmeal prepared with vanilla soymilk, ginger, cinnamon, cloves, and blueberries can have me stuffed before I'm thinking about lunch time fare!
With just half a batch of fresh blueberries left in the fridge, I wanted to make this blueberry cake recipe, thinking it a lovely treat for either breakfast, brunch, or a snack to pack along to have with my soy hot chocolate at Starbucks.
I would like to credit this site for the inspiration:

Vegan Blueberry Banana Breakfast Cake

2 cups flour
1 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 cup coconut oil
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
4 over ripe bananas
1/3 cup vanilla soymilk (optional)
1 cup fresh blueberries

Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
Flour and grease either a 9 inch cake pan or 8x8 baking pan.
Combine all dry ingredients together.
Mix wet ingredients separately save for the bananas and blueberries.
Combine the wet and dry mixture and then add a banana one by one.
I added the milk only because my coconut oil had unexpectedly turned solid and the batter was not as cohesive as I wanted hence the optional.
Fold in blueberries.
Bake for an hour to an hour and fifteen minutes, perhaps even longer, making sure to always conduct the toothpick (I used a fork, lol) test. Should come out clean when ready.

Overall delicately moist, flavorful, and very yummy. Definitely will add walnuts for a crunchy effect next time! :)


  1. I have the silk fruit & protein smoothie at home and it's SO SO SO good. Even my fiance, who loves his dairy, thinks it's delish.

  2. Yes! I just started drinking it & love it! Reminds of those Dannon Frusions I used to consume like crazy in my dairy days. :)
