Protein Blueberry Bread

8 Slices155 cals

It’s time to start your mornings off with a slice of Protein Blueberry Bread! This healthy breakfast recipe is loaded with blueberries, easy to make with protein powder, and packed with all the right macros! If you’re a fan of blueberry bread then you’re going to love this one.

For this recipe you’ll need a bowl for your dry ingredients, a bowl for your wet ingredients, something to mix your ingredients with, and a bread pan like this.

Add in your bowl for your dry ingredients 3 teaspoons of ground cinnamon, 3 scoops of a vanilla protein powder, 8 tablespoons of coconut flour, 1 cup of rolled oats turned into oat flour, 1/2 teaspoon of salt, 1 1/2 teaspoons of baking powder, and 1/4 cup of your choice sweetener or 1 1/2 tablespoons of honey (adds more sugar to the recipe).

Make your own homemade oat flour by simply processing or blending your rolled oats until they look like oat flour.

Mix all of those dry ingredients together and put them off to the side.

Add into your bowl for your wet ingredients 3 extra large egg whites, 2 teaspoons of vanilla extract, 1 container of a blueberry Greek yogurt, and 1/2 cup of unsweetened apple sauce.

Mix all of those wet ingredients together until your mix is smooth.

Blueberry Bread Mix

Slowly add your dry ingredients into your wet ingredients and continue mixing until everything is well incorporated. I like using a hand mixer to make this step easier.

Last, lightly mix in 2 cups of fresh or thawed frozen blueberries.

Take out your bread pan, coat it with some non-stick cooking spray, and pour your protein blueberry bread mix in.

Put your pan into the oven on 350F/176C for around 35-40 minutes depending on the size of your pan. You can check if it’s done by inserting a toothpick into the center of your bread and if it comes out clean, it’s done.

Remove your pan, cut your protein blueberry bread, and optionally top your slice! I like to top my slices with some Greek yogurt, protein frosting, peanut butter, jelly, and so on. Let us know what healthy toppings you use in the comments below.

    Absolutely delicious! Sooooo good. I have the blueberry cobbler protein powder from Redcon1 and used that in the recipe, i’m sure that must’ve helped with the flavor. But overall, this recipe is so crazy good, and entirely underrated.

    I’m sitting here eating this right now and am thoroughly enjoying it. I used plain Greek yogurt instead of blueberry flavoured as it was all I had and it’s still great.
    I might not worry about so much cinnamon next time as I don’t think it’s needed.

    Really great recipe though and I’ll make it again when blueberries are in season.

      Love it Scott! I’m a huge fan of this one myself but haven’t made it in awhile…I think it’s time to change that. Thanks for the refresher.

    Followed the recipe, but my mix came out quite a bit dryer than what I see in the video. Although, after baking it still came out looking the same and tasted great! Any idea why that happened or what I may have done wrong?

    This was delicious and moist! I didn’t quite have enough apple sauce so I subbed in mashed banana and also used plain low fat berry yoghurt rather than greek.

    Thanks so much for this amazing recipe!

    A very good addition to anyone’s breakfast. I enjoyed mine with some blueberry jam. Will be making again.

    OH MY GOSH. I just made this. Even my husband, who eats a standard American diet of absolute junk, LOVED the recipe and said it was a keeper. I used whey as the protein and xylitol as the sweetener. I didn’t watch the video, but used the picture as an indicator as to what baking pan to use – I used a loaf pan. I think that the recipe wasn’t meant for the loaf pan, as the bread came out very wet, but honestly, it was delicious, making us think of straight-up blueberry bread pudding. No questions asked, this will now be my go-to fruit bread recipe!

    Does it matter what kind of vanilla protein powder I use? I hear some are not heat stable…

    Thanks! 🙂

    • Derek Howes on May 28, 2014 at 12:00 am

      Hi Tammi! I’ve not encountered any issues with any of the powders that I’ve used yet (which is a ton) so I think you’ll probably be good!

    This looks like an awesome recipe! Any substitute for the coconut flour to lower the amount of fat?
