Scrumptious Blueberry-Lemon Bread

This moist bread from Karen Strzelecki of Arlington, Texas is great for breakfast or as a snack. Karen writes, “It's so good that my family doesn't even know they're eating a low-fat bread.”

    This was too dry to eat without spreading cream cheese all over it!

    I made this last night and just finished a couple slices for breakfast. It's fantanstic! My husband loved it as well. I used an egg substitute for allergy reasons. Used 3 Tbs. of canola oil instead of butter, increased applesauce to 3/4 cup, added juice from 1/2 a lemon and 1/4 tsp. lemon extract. Before adding the blueberries I coated them in flour to keep them from all sinking to bottom. Turned out great and I love the healthier aspect.
