You all know that I am all about looking for healthier options when it comes to cooking, so when I was developing this Blueberry Bread recipe, that was a big factor.  I also added in lemon for an extra punch of deliciousness.

In this Healthy Lemon Blueberry Bread recipe I used greek yogurt, applesauce, and half the oil and sugar that other recipes call for.

Ingredients
Lemon Blueberry Bread Ingredients
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour + 1 tablespoon, divided
  • 2 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ cup unsweetened applesauce
  • ¼ cup canola oil (vegetable or coconut would be fine as well)
  • 2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 eggs
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 1 cup vanilla greek yogurt
  • Zest of half lemon
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 1½ cups fresh blueberries
Lemon Glaze Ingredients
  • ½ cup confectioners sugar
  • 2 tablespoon lemon juice
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Spray loaf pan and set aside.
  3. In a medium bowl add the blueberries and 1 tablespoon of flour, stir gently and set aside.
  4. In a large bowl combine the flour, baking powder and salt - mix well.
  5. In a separate medium bowl all the oil, applesauce, greek yogurt, vanilla, eggs, sugar, lemon juice and lemon zest - mix well.
  6. Slowly pour the wet mixture into the bowl with the dry ingredients. Combine until smooth, do not over mix, otherwise your bread will come out tough.
  7. Gently fold the blueberries into the bread batter.
  8. Pour batter into prepared loaf pan.
  9. Bake for 1 hour.
  10. Remove from oven and allow bread to cool for 10 minutes before removing from pan.
  11. Allow bread to cool completely on wire rack.
  12. Once bread is cool, make the lemon glaze if desired.
Lemon Glaze Instructions
  1. Stir the confectioners sugar and lemon juice together. If glaze is too think, add in a little more lemon juice. You want it thin enough to drizzle, but thick enough to stay on the bread. Glaze will harden up a bit after approx. 15 minutes.
Notes
I only used half of the glaze on mine

Leading a healthier lifestyle is very important to my family and I, that’s why I love creating recipes that are delicious and better for us.  You can have all the flavor without all the fat! But watching what you eat isn’t all you need to do in order to live healthier. You need to work out, get a good night’s sleep, and check-in with your doctor on a regular basis so that you know everything is in working order.
