Whole Wheat Blueberry Bread

We usually make a batch or two of muffins each week but lately I have been trying something new. I have been modifying my basic muffin recipe into a sweet bread loaf recipe instead. So since I had a bunch of blueberries in the fridge cause Aldi keeps putting them on sale for less than a $1.50 I decided to go for Blueberry Bread. For those who dont know we have been grinding our own wheat berries for almost 3yrs now using an electric grain mill called the Wondermilll. Its awesome and helps us make nutritious true whole grain bread products. When you use fresh milled flour it makes for a really soft and moist finished product so this bread turned out beautifully. If you dont have a your own countertop grain mill you can always used store brought flour in this recipe. We have tried it before with Spelt flour. But if you use Wheat cut it with at least a cup of All purpose else it can make the bread kinda crumbly. 
What You Need:
3 cups of fresh milled flour
1tsp baking soda
1tsp baking powder
1tsp salt
1/2 cup oil(we used coconut oil for this one but you can use whatever you have)
1/2 cup sweetner( we use maple syrup or honey)
1 egg or egg replacer equivalent(we used flaxmill gel)
2 cups of milk or milk alternative( we used Almond Milk)
1pint of fresh blueberries(frozen work just as good)
optional: You can add in Walnuts, Shredded Coconut Flakes, etc... 

* Bake in 400 degree oven for about 35- 45mins in a rectangular baking dish or bread loaf pan.
