Is it just me or does springtime instantly make you crave everything lemon? Lemon cream pasta, lemon granola bars, lemon tahini dressing, honey sweetened lemonade…the bright, refreshing flavor just keeps me coming back for more. Especially when it’s infused into baked goods with juicy blueberries. YUM.

If you’ve been a longtime reader of mine then you know how much I love the oat and almond flour combination for gluten-free baking. Oat flour binds surprisingly well, however it tends to be a little dense on its own. Adding almond flour to the mix lightens the texture and gives a rich, buttery feel, almost like birthday cake.

Bob’s Red Mill is the only brand of almond flour I ever use because I love that it’s milled so fine that it blends seamlessly into baked goods. The quality is always consistent too. Trust me, I’ve gone through many of bags over the years with all of the gluten-free recipe testing in my kitchen.

How to Make Blueberry Lemon Yogurt Bread

The best part about this bread (besides the flavor, of course) is that it’s super simple to make!

  1. Whisk together the dry ingredients and coat the blueberries in flour. This step helps to keep them from sinking to the bottom of the loaf.
  2. Stir together the wet ingredients in a large bowl with the lemon zest. Smells so good!
  3. Add the dry ingredients and the blueberries to the wet ingredients then stir until a batter forms.
  4. Bake until golden and firm.

As you can see above, I topped mine with a lemon glaze that’s made from whisking 1-2 tablespoons lemon juice with 1 cup powdered sugar. This is totally optional and (if you want to add it) I recommend adding immediately prior to serving as it can soggy if it sits for too long.

Whether you want to bake something for Easter or just for fun, this lemon blueberry bread is the perfect springtime treat. I hope you enjoy it!

Notes

We don't eat dairy so I haven't tested this recipe with dairy yogurt. If you try it please let us know how it turned out in the comments below.
If you'd like to make this vegan you can try replacing the eggs with 2 flax eggs (2 tablespoons ground flax mixed with 6 tablespoons water). I haven't tested it so I can't guarantee good results. However, I do have a very similar vegan muffin recipe which you can find here: https://www.makingthymeforhealth.com/vegan-and-gluten-free-blueberry-lemon-muffins/
I topped mine with a lemon glaze that's made from whisking 1-2 tablespoons lemon juice with 1 cup powdered sugar. The bread is plenty sweet enough on it's own so this is totally optional. I mostly just added it for looks. If you want to add the glaze I recommend doing so immediately prior to serving as it can get soggy if it sits for too long.
