Blueberry Coconut Breakfast Loaf 1

Blueberry Coconut Breakfast Loaf

Serves: 10


Happy Monday! I hope you had a great weekend! Saturday I got a bunch of errands, which was great! However, Sunday was a whole different ball game. I had a horrible nights sleep and woke up feeling really sick to my stomach. I don’t know why, but I really didn’t feel good. My stomach progressively started feeling worse. I thought maybe if I ate something I would feel better, but I couldn’t even get anything to come near my mouth. I ended up spending the majority of the day in bed sleeping on and off. Finally around 4pm, I got up and ate a small meal. I also mustered up some energy to make the boyfriends lunch for today. Then I went back to laying down for the rest of the night. I was able to eat a small meal for dinner too, thank goodness. I was really bummed because it was such a gorgeous day out, but my body just didn’t want to do anything but lay down. Today I woke up feeling a little bit better, but still not 100%. Hopefully tomorrow I will be back up and ‘running’ though. I am going to try to really hydrate today and get some more solid meals in me! Have to keep this engine fueled πŸ˜‰

So, I know it has been a long awaited week since I first shared a picture of this recipe on instagram, but it has finally arrived! I was going to post it last week, but when I realized Heather had a blueberry theme for today’s Meatless Monday link up, I decided to hold off! You no longer have to wait though….it’s here!!! This recipe is a spinoff of a recipe I made last July! Wow, that was a long time ago! Where does the time go? Well, this version I have to say, is a MILLION times better! πŸ™‚ I have been getting a lot of requests for recipes using whey protein, so I figured, why not start with this one. I have about 900 other flavor combinations running through my head, plus there are a few more protein recipes to come! For my paleo friends, you can sub the whey protein with egg white protein in a 1:1 ratio. This recipe is sure to brighten up your morning!  I hope you enjoy! πŸ™‚

    Wow, I wish I wasn't working today so I could make this NOW. Yum! Feel better girl! Rest up and drink lots of peppermint tea (I swear that stuff is magic when it comes to nausea!)

      • i will make it for you brooke! come over! p.s. Sarah, can i use tahini instead of coconut butter? feel better.
        April 16, 2013
  • Sarah! You can't be ill! The weather is just way to nice for that to happen. Keep resting my dear <3 ps. this recipe has me speechless.. in a good way of course pps. Email coming your way either later today or tomorrow morning!

    I know that this SORT OF defeats the purpose entirely, but is there anything I can use as a sub for coconut flour? I think that using a wheat-based (even whole wheat) flour would be less dense and thus require slightly less water, but maybe using Greek yogurt instead of applesauce would make up for it?
    April 15, 2013
  • HOLY YUM!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Course I have a few questions but maybe I should email! ;) No coconut butter in the house - does oil work & are the stats similar? Dry sweetener - stevia or something like that - not sure what that is. Can you tell I am not a cook or baker! ;) Is that 165g of liquid egg whites? I need to get the ole Google out & calculate - I don't know grams & stuff ;) No matter what - when I figure it out - I AM MAKING!!! YUM!!!!

    • Luvena Cervantes
      LOL Jody you asked all the same questions I was going to. Thank you :0). Oh but I was wondering if we could leave out the dry sweetener (whatever it may be) completely? or is there something to sub?
      April 15, 2013
      • LOL Luvena!
        April 16, 2013
      • YOU ROCK!!!! NO FLOP, I am just not a cook so I need my hand held! ;) Hope you are better!!!!
        April 16, 2013
  • PS: So excited abut the recipe that I forgot to say I hope you feel better!!! Sounds like that version of the flu I got at the end of last year. I did not eat for 4 days I got it so bad!!!
    April 15, 2013
  • I'm so sorry you were not feeling good yesterday. That is no fun at all :-( However, this recipe is awesome! I'm doing mostly Paleo (well trying to do 100%) but use Whey protein powder still. So not really 100%... I don't use it often but would like to give egg white a try. Have you tried any that you like?
    April 15, 2013
  • I have been waiting for this post since last week--you and your teaser totally got me! This looks delicious.. seriously. I have everything except the apple sauce.. (take note, Haley--buy apple sauce). Happy Monday, Sarah!
    April 15, 2013
  • Mmmmmm those look delicious. I love experimenting with baking with protein powders/ weird flours.
    April 15, 2013
  • This looks insanely good. Coconut flour is my new-found love . . . and blueberries are always awesome. The healthy ingredient list is what put me over the edge. I'm totally pinning this recipe to try out sometime.

  • mallory
    for the dry sweetner. would using a few drops of liquid stevia work or does it need to be the 3/4 cup of dry sweetner to make the texture? P.s hope u feel better!
    April 15, 2013
      • mallory
        thanks! i'll give it a try and see how it turns out with the liquid sweetner!

  • Susan
    Sarah: thanks for making me drool at my computer screen this morning - the loaf looks deliciously amazing-balls!! Question: can I sub Sun Warrior natural (no flavour) brown rice protein powder? Then maybe just add some extra vanilla extract? Hope you feel better soon and will be trying it out either tonight or this weekend, Susan
    April 15, 2013
      • Susan
        Finally got around to making this loaf this weekend and used the SunWarrior Brown Rice protein powder. Since I am not much for tinkering or creating my own receipe I followed the one above but just subbed the protein powder. The results...taste wise it was good, but very crumbly. Also the loaf didn't seem to rise at all and looked more like your Cherry Loaf from last July.
        April 29, 2013
          • Susan
            Hi Sarah: You did mention that it wouldn't work perfectly as a 1:1 swap...I just thought I would try my luck :) Like I said it tasted darn good, but I needed a fork to eat it. The brown rice protein powder forced me to be civilized, which isn't a bad thing.
            April 30, 2013
  • I really HAVE been waiting for this recipe :D !!!!!!! Thanks for thinking of me as you made it girl :D you're the sweetest thing! I don't have some of the ingredients, so will have to go buy some applesauce, but will be making it for sure :) I hope you feel better fully by tomorrow xoxo
    April 15, 2013
  • This bread looks beautiful - and how sweet that you waited to post, so you could join MMAZ - that really makes my day! :) I don't know why, but this makes me crave almond butter - I bet the toast would be great with some spread on top!
    April 15, 2013
  • OMG!!! For right now, forget the brownies!! THIS IS SO FLIPPIN' GORGEOUS!!! Seriously Sarah, I'm sitting here with my mouth hanging open!! I'm totally with you on the "anything coconut is amazing" so yeah, this has GOT to happen! Plus, I've been wanting to try some baking with whey protein powder! I hope you get to feeling better soon sweetie! Nothing like being blind-sighted by the funk on a nice sunny day! Get well vibes coming your way! :D
    April 16, 2013
  • Oh yum, this looks great! I love moist fruity breads - such a treat!
    April 16, 2013
  • Hi Sarah, just found you via Heather's MMAZ. What a lovely looking blueberry loaf! I would love a slice of the toasted. Coconut and blueberry – what a great flavour combo!
    April 18, 2013
  • Claire
    Thank you for this recipe! Delicious!!
    April 20, 2013
  • This looks so good and I especially like that it has such a high amount of protein! I love breakfast breads, but always forget to make them. I just might have to make this tomorrow!
    April 24, 2013
  • Do you think that pea protein powder would work as well. I prefer to bake with whey, but am really trying to avoid dairy.
    May 3, 2013
      • Is it because its drier....I would think just add less protein powder. But I have the whey so I'll just the original recipe as is and freeze it for a treat here and there.
        May 13, 2013
  • Jenna
    Hey, I don't have any protein powder, so I was wondering, could I perhaps use 1/4 cup oat flour instead, or maybe just use more coconut flour?
    May 13, 2013
  • Just put this in the oven but the "batter" was incredibly dry - I added water just to make everything combine but it was definitely not pouring. Is this what the consistence should be like or did I do something wrong?
    September 6, 2013
  • I saw you say that pea and rice proteins cannot be subbed 1:1 for whey without changing liquid amounts, but do you have any experience with/suggestions for subbing soy protein powder? Should I mix it with water to form more of a paste first?
    September 17, 2013
      • Do you not use soy protein for any specific reason, or is it just personal preference? Taste? Nutrition? Versatility? Just curious!
        September 18, 2013
        • Still tinkering with this - I want to love it but cannot get the texture down. Mine looks EXACTLY like the cherry pecan loaf - super dense. What did you do differently with this to make it rise so much better? I have a love/hate relationship with protein powder baking!
          October 12, 2013
          • I mean coconut cherry. Is it using more egg whites and applesauce in lieu off yogurt that makes it rise better?
            October 12, 2013
  • Ok I will keep on truckin'. I'm determined!
