Healthy Blueberry Lemon Breakfast Bread

My little Jesse goes crazy over lemon pound cake. I’m talking sneak-the-whole-bundt-into-the-bedroom-after-midnight-and-eat-half-the-cake kind of crazy. He’s that kid. He’s my midnight snacker with the taste for baked goods. And he loves blueberries too.

So putting these two things together for breakfast was only obvious right?

I received a big bag of sweet lemons from a close friend and I knew I had to make my boy something with them. What I love about this recipe is that frozen blueberries work just fine, because I don’t always have fresh blueberries on hand.

And I’m sure you may have most or if not all of these ingredients in your kitchen. I made these extra healthy, full of omega packed ground flax seeds and half the fat of a typical breakfast bread. And to boot, antioxidant rich blueberries and lemons full of Vitamin C. Could these be any better for your family?
