Blueberry Coffee Cake

I worked at Starbucks when I was in college. I loved the chaos. I loved the people. I loved the atmosphere.

I hated to coffee.

Nothing against Starbucks, but I just am not a coffee drinker.

That doesn’t mean I don’t enjoy a good coffee cake.

Matter of fact, coffee cake might be one of my favorite breakfasts. Close behind cinnamon rolls.

This is one of my favorite recipes because it is a little healthier than your typical coffee cake. So, I don’t feel bad about eating half the pan.

A coffee cake that's actually healthier and doesn't have a pound of butter in it. Don't feel guilty about eating the entire pan!

I usually make this with blueberries, but feel free to get creative! If you want to make this recipe with peaches, go for it. If you want to try a berry concoction, then be my guest. The recipe is pretty forgiving and will gladly take whatever fruit you might throw at it.

Make it tonight for breakfast in the morning. Make it on the weekend for a special treat. Make it for an afternoon snack. It doesn’t matter when you eat it, it’s a winner.
