Blueberry Walnut Bread

If you can find them, use the tiny frozen wild blueberries over big ones, it suits the bread better! Trader Joe’s and Safeway have them in the frozen berry section.

Blueberry Walnut Bread


  • 1 cup walnuts
  • 1½ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • ¼ cup brown sugar, packed (used dark)
  • 1 Tbsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp kosher salt
  • ½ cup low-fat milk
  • ½ cup Egg Beaters© or 2 eggs
  • 2 Tbsp unsalted butter, melted and cooled
  • 1 Tbsp fresh orange zest (off 1 orange)
  • ½ tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1½ cups frozen or fresh tiny wild blueberries


Heat oven to 350° and place walnuts on a small baking sheet, toast for 10 minutes. Take out, let cool a bit and then chop finely (a mini chopper works well).

Spray a bread pan with cooking spray, set aside.

In a large mixing bowl whisk the flour through salt, stir in the nuts.

In a small mixing bowl whisk the milk, eggs, orange zest and vanilla together, add the butter. Pour over the dry, stir till just mixed. Gently mix in the berries, don’t be alarmed if the batter turns a bit purple.

Scrape the batter into the prepared pan, smooth out and bake for 55 to 65 minutes, or until a butter knife comes out clean.

Let cool for a few minutes, turn out and let cool fully on a cooling rack before slicing.

Store tightly wrapped.
