Oh how I love this Healthy Lemon Blueberry Bread… it basically tastes like Spring in the form of bread to me. It’s light, sweet, lemony… all of my favorite things. I’ve already made this twice this month despite the ridiculously chilly temps on the East Coast. Until it decides to warm up I’ll just be here snacking on this and waiting for the sunshine!
This Healthy Lemon Blueberry Bread was the result of me accidentally buying waaaay too many lemons/berries. You guys all know how much I love Costco, but sometimes I get a little overzealous and think that buying 5 lbs of lemons and 10 lbs of berries is a good idea. (you just CAN’T beat the prices!!). Then about 5-6 days post shopping trip I look and my fridge and say what the HECK are we going to do with all these lemons and berries?! (Or veggies, meat, etc.. whatever thing I’ve chosen to over-purchase there)
Thankfully berries + citrus go together beautifully, so I was more than happy to get to baking with them. (After I of course made Instant Pot Healthy Lemon Chicken Soup, Healthy Lemon Chia Baked Oatmeal Cups, and Healthy Blueberry Baked Oatmeal in an effort to use them up!) I truthfully didn’t feel like making muffins, so I modified my Clean Eating Banana Bread Recipe and gave it a whirl. It came out perfect on the first time which is always the BEST feeling. The sweetness from the berries + the zip from the lemon is soooo good together!
This recipe is so perfect for Spring/Summer. It’s light, just a little sweet (from honey!) and perfect for breakfast or a snack. It was very hard to resist eating all of it when I was taking these pictures! I gave the other half to my mom, and the rest to Tyler to have for breakfast before work because I easily could’ve eaten it all on my own!
