farm food | whole wheat blueberry zucchini bread

get ready for this tasty lick. it's sweet. it has a vegetable. my kaye loves it. my farmer loves it. basically i'm mom/wife of the year. (raises hands in air in obnoxious victory dance.)
3 eggs lightly beaten
1 c olive oil
1/2 c greek or regular plain yogurt
3 tsp vanilla
2 c sugar
2 1/2 c shredded zucchini
3 c whole wheat flour
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp cinnamon
2 c blueberries (fresh or frozen)

1 | preheat your oven to 350┬║ and grease whatever type of pan you're using - bundt, mini-muffs, loaf, regular muffs.

2 | in a mixing bowl lightly beat your eggs and then add oil, vanilla, and sugar. stir in greek yogurt.
i'm pretty sure kaye is tasting vanilla here...which if you've ever's not good. but helping is helping. thanks gal.

3 | fold in your zucchini.
4 | add the rest of your ingredients - flour, salt, baking powder, baking soda, and cinnamon.
 5 | gently fold in your blueberries. you don't want to crush them. i used frozen which are a lot more forgiving...and cheaper. they also take a lot longer for a hungry turtle to bite through. girlfriend eats blueberries like it's her job.
here i thought i was being clever by adding a few more blueberries to the top they didn't sink to the bottom.

don't be fooled. a bundt gets flipped, so all these blueberries were actually on the bottom. not my smartest moment.

6 | you're ready to pop these yummies into the oven!

bundt - check after 45 minutes
loaf - check after 40 minutes
mini muffs - check after 8 minutes
muffs - check after 15 minutes

tip - i always take my baked goods out of the oven when they are on the verge of looking complete. i feel like as they are cooling the warmth will continue to bake them a little more. by taking them out a minute or two early you could be saving yourself from some dryness. and nobody likes a dry slice of blueberry zucchini bread...just sayin'.

I have been looking for something amazing to do with all the blueberries I have been picking lately. That was one of my 5 for this week and I couldn't be more excited to give this a try! Have a wonderful Sunday!
