Who loves winter?  Anyone, anyone, Bueller?  Today, the wind is whipping around like a tornado is going to blow through the neighborhood at any moment.  I think I may have seen a mini snownado rolling through the backyard a minute ago.  It’s brutal and cold and it’s making me want to move to a warmer climate asap.  I won’t complain too much though because a friend of mine lives in Boston.  Have you seen Boston lately?  They got a little bit of snow the past few weeks.  Just a coating.  It’s absolutely horrifying.  So, anyone else in the Boston area….I’m sending you surface of the sun warm, sunny thoughts.

What to do when it’s too cold to even walk to the mailbox?  Bake….bake your heart out.  But bake things that won’t add inches to my thighs, butt, legs, you name it.  Bake something productive, heart-warming and heart-healthy…like muffins.  But you know what’s better than just a muffin….a toasted muffin.  However, toasting muffins can be tricky because they’re shaped all rounded and you can’t really fit them into the slot in the toaster.  If you have a toaster oven then this isn’t an issue but I don’t own one so stuffing a muffin into my toaster is quite the scene, as is removing it from the toaster.  Solution?  Turn that muffin into a loaf of bread that can be sliced and diced until your heart’s content.

I started with an old, old, very ancient recipe of mine from back in the days when I didn’t really know what the heck I was doing with the blog.  I adapted my Morning Glory Muffin recipe a bit to include the oatmeal and blueberries, and I omitted all things Morning Glory.  I also replaced the olive oil called for in the recipe and used a less flavorful canola oil.  Equally healthy but without the “in your face” olive flavor that took away from my blueberry muffin fantasy.  What resulted was an uber healthy bread packed full of healthy grains and blueberries that’s moist, tender and toastable.  It’s great just sliced and served with a little bit of White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Butter but toasting it makes it so comforting and crisp.

We only have a few more weeks of winter, friends.  Let’s just bundle up, eat some bread and wait for the robins to arrive.  They’ll be here before you know it and then we can fire up those grills.

  1. Looks delicious! I’ll be baking this today…in Boston!

  2. I love healthier muffin ideas, these look delicious! And thankfully we don’t live in Boston either, Michigan is bad enough!

  3. I so agree with this. We just got home from a mini-snow vacation and a few days of skiing snowmobiling in an effort to embrace the cold. it was fun, but really…I just want to hibernate in my warm house until spring. Baking sounds like the perfect way to pass the time. Also- those butter hearts are freakin’ adorable.

  4. That heart butter is SO CUTE!! And I love anything with blueberries 🙂

  5. What a delicious quick bread! I love your presentation of it.. especially the little butter hearts.

  6. I live in Boston and have been experiencing the wrath of mother nature first hand. To say that I am anxiously waiting for winter to be over is an understatement. To help ease the discomfort from all this snow, I have been reaching out to comfort foods and this one definitely fits the bill. I love that it can easily be toasted (my tea needs a companion) and it is loaded with sweet blueberries.

  7. Can the whole wheat flour be substituted with all purpose flour? If so, would the same amount of all purpose flour be used? Thank you so much – this recipe looks delicious!
