Try it Tuesday - Blueberry Sweet Potato Bread


Baking is something that I have done more of in the last two years since becoming a Leap Therapist.


I have another yummy recipe of Wild blueberry sweet potato wheat bread. The recipe is from another dietitian's website. Her name is Sarah Schlichter. Her website is http://bucketlisttummy.com/wild-blueberry-sweet-potato-wheat-bread/

The recipe just looked so yummy, I could not pass up the opportunity to try it. And I will have to share loved learning about the difference between wild blueberries and cultivated blueberries.

Plus if you want to incorporate some more powerhouse foods in your diet, the wild blueberries and the sweet potatoes are the foods to include. This is even from someone who said, I really don't like sweet potatoes.

Wild Blueberry Sweet Potato Wheat Bread

Ingredients

  • 1 egg

  • 1 cup mashed sweet potatoes (about 2 medium)

  • ¼ cup coconut oil, melted

  • ¼ cup plain greek yogurt (I used fat-free) - if dairy free, can use coconut milk yogurt, almond milk yogurt, soy milk yogurt

  • 1 tbsp maple syrup

  • 1 cup whole wheat flour - Can use Almond flour instead

  • ½ cup oat flour (oats grinded into flour)

  • ⅓ cup cane sugar

  • 1 tsp cinnamon

  • ¼ tsp salt

  • ½ tsp baking powder

  • ½ tsp baking soda

  • 1 cup frozen wild blueberries (+some for topping)

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 and grease 9x5 inch loaf pan.

  2. To a small bowl, add the egg, mashed sweet potatoes, oil, yogurt and maple syrup to a bowl. Whisk until combined.

  3. To another bowl, add flour, oat flour, sugar, cinnamon, salt, baking powder and baking soda. Mix the dry into the wet ingredients, folding the blueberries in last. The batter should be thick.

  4. Bake for 45-50 minutes, or until toothpick comes out clean.

  5. Let cool for 10-15 minutes before slicing.
