(Chicago) – For the “older Americans” amongst us we have a healthy recipe geared for “senior gastronomy”: Lo’s Blueberry Coffee Cake.
Thanks to the California Department of Health Services, this healthy recipe offers seniors a major snack on a minor budget–only .29¢ per serving for 8 servings. If you’re grandchildren are behaving, you can offer them a slice, too. It’s healthy and low cal.
Here’s what you need to know:
|1⁄2 cup||nonfat milk|
|1⁄2 cup||yogurt, nonfat vanilla|
|3 tablespoons||canola oil|
|2 teaspoons||lemon peel (grated, yellow only)|
|4 teaspoons||baking powder|
|1 1⁄2 cup||fresh (or frozen unsweetened) blueberries|
|2 tablespoons||walnuts (coarsely chopped)|
1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Position rack in the center of the oven.
2. In a large bowl whisk together the egg, milk, yogurt, oil and lemon peel.
