Blueberry Lemon Yogurt Loaf tastes amazing but is light thanks to yogurt, applesauce, and some whole wheat flour. A healthy but delicious way to enjoy summer’s best flavors!
I just discovered the new-ish Whole Foods on the Upper East Side. It opened in August, and I can’t believe it took me this long to go – I think I subconsciously knew that it would mean trouble for me. I spent an hour in there the other day just filling my cart with things that we really don’t need but can’t live without (like these all-natural candy bars, which are really just a Snickers bar pretending to be healthy). Everyone always complains about how overpriced Whole Foods is, so I was surprised when a pint of blueberries was on sale for $1.99! I have a skewed view of grocery prices due to living in NYC, but I’m pretty sure that is a great price for berries anywhere you live! So clearly I had to bake something using blueberries. Since summer is here and I was trying to lighten things up a bit, I decided to make a blueberry lemon bread, using yogurt and applesauce to replace some of the fat. I also snuck some whole wheat flour in there for some added nutrition. The results were fantastic! The bread was so moist with the perfect amount of sweetness, and I loved the combo of the lemon and blueberry flavors – it tastes like summer!
