Healthy lemon blueberry bread is moist, fluffy and packed with flavor. This lightened up lemon bread contains NO SUGAR, NO BUTTER, and can be made with whole wheat, gluten-free flour, or all-purpose flour.
A few years ago I shared my healthy banana bread recipe and so many of you have requested a healthy blueberry bread version. This is my favorite semi-healthy lemon loaf recipe and I can’t wait to share it with you. This lightened up lemon blueberry banana bread is everything you want in a lemon bread and much more.
It’s made healthy by replacing sugar with honey, butter with coconut oil, and by using a white whole wheat flour. You can also use a mixture of oat flour or white flour if you’d like. The end result is a light and fluffy naturally sweetened bread that makes a delicious breakfast or an afternoon snack. The addition of blueberries is completely optional but I highly recommend them if you enjoy blueberries.
To keep the blueberries from sinking to the bottom of the pan while baking and prevent them from browning, coat them with a teaspoon of cornstarch and lemon juice.
