Notes

Substitutions for this Healthy Lemon Blueberry Bread Recipe:
There are a lot of different substitutions for this bread depending on what you have in your fridge/pantry.
  • Oil: You can substitute olive oil, vegetable oil or avocado oil
  • Flour:  You can make this with regular whole wheat flour or all oat flour. It will be a little more dense than if you use whole wheat pastry flour, but it will work just fine!
  • Honey : You can substitute honey with maple syrup
  • Berries: You can use strawberries or raspberries in this recipe, but it may be a little more watery. You can also substitute frozen berries, but make sure to thaw completely and strain out any liquid to avoid the bread becoming too wet. To avoid blueberries sinking to the bottom of the mix or pan, you can coat with a teaspoon cornstarch before adding to the batter.
  • Healthy Lemon Bread- You can skip the berries in this and make it a healthy lemon bread!
  • Greek Yogurt: I haven't tried it but I think you can substitute sour cream for greek yogurt
  • To make gluten free: I haven't tried it, but I think you can replace whole wheat flour with Bob's Red Mill 1-to-1 Gluten Free Flour
  • To make vegan: Here's a Vegan Lemon Blueberry Bread Recipe. You can also subbing the egg/egg white for with flax eggs, sub honey with maple syrup, and sub greek yogurt for dairy free yogurt. I have not tried making this bread vegan, so I'm not sure how it will work!
  • Muffins: I haven't tried baking this bread in muffin form but I think it would work. You can try putting in a greased or lined muffin tin and bake for 15-20 minutes until a toothpick comes out clean when inserted in the center.
