Lemon-Blueberry Yogurt Loaf

Lemon-Blueberry Yogurt Loaf



  • 11/2 cups all-purpose flour (if you’re skipping the fruit, you can also skip the last tablespoon of flour)
  • 2 tsps baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 cup plain whole milk yogurt
  • 1 cups sugar
  • 3 large eggs
  • 2 tsps grated lemon zest (approximately 2 lemons)
  • 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 11/2 cups blueberries fresh (or frozen, thawed and rinsed, miniature wild blueberries are great for this, and pose the least risk of sinking)
  • 1/3 cup lemon juice (freshly squeezed)
Total Time
55 min


Preheat the oven to 350°F, and lightly coat a 9x5” loaf pan with nonstick cooking spray.

In a small bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and lemon zest. In a separate bowl, whisk together the coconut oil, egg white, and vanilla. Stir in the agave and Greek yogurt, mixing until no large lumps remain. Stir in the lemon juice. Alternate between adding the flour mixture and milk to the egg mixture, beginning and ending with the flour, and stirring until just barely incorporated. Gently fold in the blueberries.

Gently spread the batter into the prepared pan. Bake at 350°F for 37-41 minutes, or until the top feels lightly firm to the touch and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Cool in the pan for 10 minutes before carefully transferring to a wire rack.

Notes: White whole wheat flour or all-purpose flour may be substituted for the whole wheat pastry flour. For the gluten-free flour, I recommend as follows: 1 cup (120g) millet flour, ½ cup (60g) tapioca flour, ½ cup (60g) brown rice flour, and 2 teaspoons xanthan gum.

I recommend using fresh blueberries since frozen tend to bleed and turn the batter gray. However, if using frozen, the bake time may need to be increased.
