15 Delicious Blueberry Breakfast Recipes


Today, we are featuring 15 delicious blueberry breakfast recipes.

I love blueberries! I especially love blueberry breakfast recipes. I try to refrain myself from inhaling a whole carton before tossing them into a recipe. Sometimes I buy an extra carton just so I can nibble on them at the same time I am baking a recipe with them. (No joke!) Since I love them so much, it’s a good thing these plump, juicy, sweet little gems offer many nutritional benefits! 

  • Packed with Vitamin C which helps maintain healthy gums and capillaries as well as a healthy immune system.
  • A good source of dietary fiber which helps in preventing constipation.
  • Full of phytochemicals which may help to prevent many types of chronic diseases, cancers, and heart disease. 
  • 80 calories per cup, virtually no fat and low in sodium.
  • Excellent source of manganese, which plays an important role in bone development and converting proteins, carbohydrates and fats into energy.

Blueberries grow in clusters and are at their best from May through October when they are in season.

Blueberries retain their maximum amount of nutrients and their maximum taste when they are fresh, not baked or cooked. That is because their nutrients (including vitamins, antioxidants, and enzymes) undergo damage when exposed to baking/cooking temperatures (350°F/175°C and higher).

The size of the berry does not indicate maturity, but the color does. Blueberries should be deep purple-blue to blue-black. (Reddish blueberries aren’t ripe, and won’t ripen once they are picked, but you can use them in cooking.) Look for berries that are firm, dry, plump and smooth-skinned. Do not purchase berries that look soft or shriveled or have any signs of mold. If the packaging has juice in it, it probably means that the berries are bruised and will not keep well.

Refrigerate fresh blueberries when you get them home and be sure to rinse them before consuming. It’s best to use fresh blueberries within 8 – 10 days of purchase. 

Fresh blueberries freeze well. Place the berries on a cookie sheet and freeze until firm. Place the frozen blueberries into a freezer zip-lock bag and keep frozen until you are ready to use them. When using frozen berries in recipes that do not require cooking, thaw well and drain prior to using.

So now that you know a little more about blueberries, let’s look at some yummy blueberry recipes for breakfast.

    I love blueberries! Not only are they delicious and healthy, but they are practical... they keep a pretty long time, and they can be frozen. Baking with frozen often comes out just as well as using the fresh. Love an organized fruit! Seana Turner recently posted...Everything On A HookMy Profile

      Hi Seana, We agree with you! Blueberries are wonderful in so many recipes, or all by themselves. I like to stock-up on them whenever they are on sale and freeze them for later. Thanks so much for dropping by and leaving a note! Have a great day! Linda
