Blueberry Lemon Greek Yogurt Bread

Introducing: Blueberry Lemon Greek Yogurt Bread!  Yes, it's true three of my favorite things all in one bread.  Blueberries, lemon, and Greek Yogurt, what more could a girl ask for?

This summer,  I took Jonathan blueberry picking, and of course we ended up with a lot more  than a family of three could eat before they went bad.  So while surfing pinterest, I came a across a recipe for a Greek yogurt and banana bread, and my first thought was I could do that!  All I have to do is switch out the bananas (which I hate) for blueberries (which I love).

Hence the Blueberry Lemon Greek Yogurt bread was created.  Did I mention that it's healthy?  I have to say that having this loaf in the frig on a morning when I'm trying to get out the door, has been a lifesaver. 

FYI, You're going to want to store this in the frig as it will go bad if left out too long. 

This was inspired by the original recipe posted here, I hope you all enjoy this as much as we did.

  • 1.5 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup cane sugar
  • zest of 1 lemon
  • 1 tsp vanilla (please use the real stuff!)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup Greek yogurt
  • 1 cup fresh blueberries
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Start by combining flour, baking powder, and salt in a large mixing bowl
  • In a separate bowl, Add eggs, sugars, Lemon zest, and vanilla.  Once combined add the Greek Yogurt.
  • Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients, and mix until just combined. Your batter will be a little lumpy.
  • Next fold in the blueberries.
  • Pour batter into a greased loaf pan and distribute evenly.
  • Pop into the oven and bake for one hour, the top is golden brown and a toothpick should come out clean.
