Professional pet sitter and “obsessive baker” Jenny Dunklee became vegetarian almost 20 years ago, and went vegan last year. “This recipe came about after my dad and I picked an insane amount of blueberries last fall,” she explains. “I was making all kinds of blueberry desserts and was looking for something special for a weekend breakfast.”
