Hearty Breakfast Loaf

This Hearty Breakfast Loaf has everything you need for a healthy, balanced breakfast: oats, yoghurt, egg and blueberries and some honey and lemon zest for sweetness and flavour.

This loaf is nice and moist and full of flavour – a delicious start to any day!

Read the recipe carefully!! It calls for 250ml of blueberries, not grams. You can measure this in a measuring jug or measuring cups (250ml = 1 cup). This is one regular 125g punnet of blueberries.

This makes one loaf – roughly 8 slices.

  1. Can you use ready brek as the oat meal flour??

    • Hi there, I have never used ready brek before so I’m afraid I can’t say for sure. If ready break is the same as oats, then of course it would be fine.

  5. Norma Russell

    Thank you, cannot wait to make it.

  6. Hi, just put in the oven it’s looking very purple maybe it’s because I used frozen blueberries, will let you know how it goes

    • Hi Tina, hmm I used frozen blueberries as well but it didn’t turn purple! Maybe they defrosted a bit before you added them to the mixture causing the colour to run. Hope it tastes good in any case!

  7. Hi Diane been on over an hour still gooey must of done something wrong. I’ll try again tomorrow 😊

    • Hi Tina, did you use too many blueberries maybe? Its 250mls not 250g – I know a few people made this mistake. This is way to much moisture for the loaf so it won’t set. Hope that helps!

  8. Hi there, just about to make this recipe, looks delicious, just wondering how you measured 250 mls of blueberries?

    • Hi Carmel, you can use a measuring jug or a measuring cup. If yo uare using fresh (not frozen) blueberries, it’s 125g of blueberries (a regular sized punnet). Hope that helps 🙂

  9. Hi, would using fat free natural yogurt work do you thin? Thank you.
