Skinny Blueberry Coffee Cake
I don’t really remember the weather this time of year last year, but in our second year in Orange County, the weather has been nothing but amazing lately.
It’s been in the upper 60’s/low 70’s which is so perfect. The cooler mornings have been making me want extra cups of coffee every day.
And if you give a girl extra coffee, she’s going to wish she had coffee cake to eat with it!
I love coffee cake, I mean looooveeee it! My favorite part is the crumb topping. Heck, I could just eat the crumb topping and just be so incredibly happy!
Coffee cake is not known for being very healthy though so I rarely eat it. I had a serious craving for it a couple of weeks ago and made this lighter version packed with fresh blueberries and of course, some of that dreamy crumb topping!
Most traditional coffee cake recipes can have close to 400 calories. This lightened up version has 244 calories for a nice size square, less fat, and and even a boost of protein thanks to the Greek yogurt!
I only added 1/2 cup of brown sugar for the cake so this cake is not overly sweet, but with the blueberries and streusel topping, it will still satisfy with your sweet tooth without all the guilt!
Now, if only somebody could come watch my kids so I could enjoy a lazy Saturday morning with a mug of coffee and a slice of this cake!
