A delicious and moist coffee cake bursting with fresh blueberries! Topped with a crumbly topping and walnuts, you would never guess it is made with healthier ingredients!


Alright. February is officially here! How many of you have kept to your resolutions to eat better? Anybody out there still with me? 🙂  Hopefully you haven’t fallen off of the band wagon just yet because I have a delicious recipe to share with you today!

It is one of my favorite things to eat. Blueberry coffee cake. But of course it is made with healthier ingredients! I love a good crumbly coffee cake. But when you add fresh blueberries I am in heaven! This was a deliciously moist coffee cake and I loved the bursting blueberries with each bite. Each piece is only 210 calories so you can enjoy a freshly baked piece for breakfast or even a snack!

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray an 8x8 inch pan with cooking spray and set aside.

In a large bowl, beat the brown sugar, butter and oil until fluffy. Beat in the eggs one at a time until incorporated, and lastly add the vanilla and yogurt.
  • Spread half of the batter into the 8 inch pan. Sprinkle half of the nut mixture over the batter and top with the blueberries. Gently pressing them into the batter. Spoon the rest of the batter over the top and smooth it out. Sprinkle the remaining mixture over the top of the cake.

    Love your site and the wonderful recipes you share.. I made this one today in the 8” square pan… came out thicker than optimal and a bit low in flavor but ok with butter lol ! I’m going to try again in a slightly larger pan and possibly make the crumble heavier (and less healthy:) with additional butter, sugar and flour added in. Very good base recipe tho !

  2. Just made this but couldn’t find at what point to add the flour mixture. I added it to the butter, sugar and egg mixture but then ended up adding a little milk because it seemed really dry. Haven’t tasted it yet because it just came out of the oven but it smells yummy!!

  3. Hi. I just wanted to tell you I love your site. You always have interesting food ideas and awesome pictures. I also did a search for low carb recipes and you even have some of those for which I’m very grateful. Just wanted to say “thanks” for everything you do!

  4. Substitute the sugars with coconut sugar and the canola oil for Olive or avocado oil and then it wil be healthy.

  5. This looks great! I’m still trying to be careful with my diet so this is perfect. It looks delicious!
