Sample the breakfast berry recipes from Anchorage Alaska bed and breakfasts.
Both wild and cultivated berries are big and plentiful this year. Anchorage had great weather the last week of May which is a deciding period for the berries. We have had lots of rain since then. In July we had double the average of rainfall and set a record for number of rainy days.

Here is another breakfast recipe from Camai Bed and Breakfast using blueberries:
Berry Breakfast Bread or Muffins
2 cups cooked steel-cut oats
½ cup uncooked rolled oats
1/3 cup melted butter
1/3 cup of applesauce
1/3 cup honey
1 tsp vanilla
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 tbsp cinnamon
1 3/4 cup whole wheat flour
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 1/4 cup blueberries fresh or frozen
¼ cup additional blueberries for topping
1/4 cup uncooked rolled oats
Melt the butter and mix it in with the warm cooked oatmeal. Add the applesauce.
In a separate bowl, combine the egg and honey. Add it to the other wet ingredients.
Combine the sugar, cinnamon, flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt in a third bowl. Mix well and then add to the wet ingredients. Stir until all traces of the dry ingredients are gone (do not over mix).
Pour into loaf tin, or spoon into muffin tins (2/3-3/4 full). I was able to make 12 regular sized muffins.
Top with berries and raw oats. Bake at 350 F for 25-30 minutes.
