Ingredients

  • ¼ cup unsalted butter
  • ¼ cup canola oil
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 tsp lemon extract
  • ½ cup buttermilk (I subbed in ¼ cup milk, ¼ plain yogurt and a splash of lemon juice)
  • 2 cups + 1 tbsp whole wheat pastry flour divided
  • 1 ½ tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp sea salt
  • 2 cups blueberries (fresh or frozen)
  • 1 tbsp natural cane sugar - set aside for sprinkling
  • 1 tbsp rolled oats - set aside for sprinkling

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat a loaf pan with oil.
  • In a mixing bowl, beat the butter, brown sugar; until light and fluffy. Add in the eggs, vanilla extract, lemon extract, oil and buttermilk; stir to combine.
  • In a small mixing bowl, mix together 2 cups flour, baking powder and salt. Mix the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients, mixing until just about combined. Toss the blueberries with the remaining 1 tbsp of flour and add to the batter, mixing until just combined.
  • Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan. Sprinkle evenly with 1 tbsp sugar and 1 tbsp rolled oats. Bake for 50-60 minutes; or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Let cool completely before removing from the pan.
