Healthy Blueberry Coffee Cake

You know something fun about summer?

It’s hot.

Okay, that isn’t so fun. At least not in Texas, where it’s five thousand degrees (slight exaggeration). You know what is REALLY fun about summer?

It’s blueberry season.

Which means, you can make all kinds of fun blueberry treats.

Take this blueberry coffee cake, for example.

This isn’t just a breakfast treat either, it’s great for lunch, as a snack, a dinner side salad. Well, this might not really qualify as a salad, but you can try.

It’s fairly simple to make.

Normally, you would put it in a cake pan, but I spiced things up a little and made it in a bundt pan.
