Blueberry Lemon Nut quick bread

another day, another quick bread.


as previously mentioned (here), blueberries are a staple in my house


so making this recipe was a no-brainer






adding nuts to the berry and lemon bread party is something i had not tried before-


but i am so glad i did.




this bread recipe is now in the work week breakfast rotation.


most recently i made this bread and hard boiled eggs on a Sunday so they were ready for the whole week.






just look at the fluffy crumbly bread with the juicy blueberry spots.





the ever growing list of quick breads:


lemon bread

coconut banana bread

chocolate banana bread

greek yogurt cranberry bread

zucchini carrot bread






this blueberry recipe is a nice alternative to blueberry muffins-


which is something i make a lot and should start sharing with you. the list grows faster than i can share.
