Blueberry-Almond Coffee Cake (Low Fat)

READY IN: 41mins
Recipe by Amberngriffinco

I found this in Cooking Light ages ago.. it is INCREDIBLY LIGHT, bursting with blueberries and uses buttermilk instead of fat. I serve it as a dessert with a drop of whip cream. I usually use frozen berries with no problem. Perfect for smaller families and freezes well!

great. i used frozen, chopped strawberries instead of blue, half whole wheat, half AP flour and half brown sugar, half regular sugar. Really enjoyed the almonds. i doubled the recipe and made in loaf pans to have for 2 days worth of breakfast. One recipe fed our family of 4. thanks for a healthy alternative!
