Low Fat Oaty blueberry loaf cake

I try wherever possible to make my baking healthy, I am great believer in the positive benefits of a piece of cake and if it healthy too then great. This recipe features low fat or no fat yogurt, something I normally have in my fridge, the fabulous anti oxidant rich blueberry , but you could use blackberry if that works for you and the cholesterol reducing oat. Cinnamon is also featured ( one of my favourite spices ) which supposedly has the properties to help regulate blood sugar levels.
What I do know is it tastes good, so hopefully its doing you good too. Based on an american recipe for mufffins,I have pimped its health content by adding the oats and spices.

  • 1 cup of fresh blueberries
  • 1 3/4 cups of plain flour
  • 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • pinch of sea salt
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 cup of caster sugar
  • 2/3 cup low fat / no fat plain yogurt
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 1/4 cup skimmed milk
  • 2 eggs - free range
  • 1 tbsp sugar and 1 tsp cinnamon - to make cinnamon sugar
  • Pre heat your oven to 180C
  • Spray a 2lb loaf tin with oil spray
  • Mix your first 7 ingredients in a bowl
  • Whisk up in a second bowl, your eggs, yoghurt, milk, and lemon juice
  • Add the wet mixture to your dry mixture and stir until well mixed
  • Pour / scoop into your prepared tin
  • Sprinkle the top with your cinnamon sugar
  • Bake for approx 35-45 mins until well risen, golden and when tested with a coktail stick cooked through
  • Cool in tin, serve in chunky slices.
