Keto Blueberry Sweet Cream Cheese Crumble Loaf

Keto Blueberry Sweet Cream Cheese Crumble Loaf

So it’s been a rough couple of weeks over here in the Hungry household.  We’ve all been sick, though Mr. Hungry is the only one who ended up with a horrible sinus infection requiring antibiotics finally.  We did the neti potthing, the oregano oil thing, and a bunch of other home remedies, but what started as a summer cold just wouldn’t take the hint and leave!

We’re finally all feeling better, and now that I’m back to low carb cooking again I have been going a little cray cray with the blueberries.

First a friend dropped off a couple of pints while we were sick, and then blueberries went on sale at our local grocery store for just over $1 per pint – so of course I bought an entire case of them because it was such a great deal.

When I got home with my bounty reality struck and I remembered that my freezer here at the rental house is pretty miniscule, so I needed to use them up ASAP since freezing them wasn’t really an option.

Cue frenzy of blueberry themed EVERYTHING.
