Glazed Blueberry Quick Bread

Delicious Glazed Blueberry Quick Bread - no yeast involved, filled with blueberries and topped with a yummy glaze!

Happy Wednesday, friends!

I’ve said it before, but I’ll say it again – I LOVE to bake! Love it, Love it, Love it, although I don’t love my complete lack of will power when it comes to eating baked goods. :/ But, hey, there’s always room for improvement, right? I’m always excited to find new recipes that I can bake up and bring to neighbors or friends. Sometimes, (just sometimes) I feel a little guilty because I know someone is trying to eat healthier, and here I am at their doorstep with a plate of chocolate chip cookies. I’m so mean! But, truthfully, its the only thing I really know how to do – Is bake! Well, I’m always happy to find good recipes with oats or fruit, because I can kind of claim it as healthier.

Today’s recipe is one of those “healthier” recipes 🙂 Forget the cup of sugar and the amazing glaze that smothers the top. This thing is loaded with blueberries. Loaded! So, hush about eating better for just a moment and sink your teeth into this soft blueberry filled goodness. I’m pretty sure you wont regret it!

DIFFICULTY: Simple
HOW MANY DOES IT FEED:
ANY CHANGES MADE: used less blueberries, 1 1/2 cup,  used 2 smaller 8×4 loaf pans,

ANY SUGGESTIONS FOR NEXT TIME: We recommend halving the sauce, as we had lots left over. And on the next batch, we’re going to try using Almond Extract in place of vanilla.
