It's practically impossible not to adore this delightful loaf of bread. Thanks to honey as a natural sweetener, it's incredibly delicious without being overly sweet. Adding juicy blueberries lends a lovely burst of sweetness to the loaf, enhancing its natural flavor. Here at HH, we strive to minimize the use of cane sugar whenever possible, although sometimes necessary, especially when preparing my mom's cherished Greek dessert recipes.



    • 1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour

    • 1 teaspoon baking powder (preferably aluminum-free)

    • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda

    • 1/4 teaspoon salt (preferably sea salt or Himalayan pink salt)

    • 1/3 cup raw honey or pure maple syrup

    • 1/4 cup avocado oil or extra virgin olive oil

    • 2 large eggs, preferably free-range or organic, at room temperature

    • 1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt (preferably low-fat or non-fat), at room temperature

    • Zest of 1 organic lemon

    • Juice of 1 organic lemon

    • 1 cup fresh organic blueberries, washed and dried


    1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease a 9x5-inch loaf pan with cooking spray or line it with parchment paper.

    1. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the whole wheat flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt until well combined. Set aside.

    1. In another mixing bowl, whisk together the honey (or maple syrup) and avocado oil (or olive oil) until smooth and well combined.

    1. Add the eggs to the honey-oil mixture, one at a time, beating well after each addition.

    1. Stir in the Greek yogurt, lemon zest, and lemon juice until smooth and creamy.

    1. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, stirring until just combined. Be careful not to overmix.

    1. Gently fold in the fresh blueberries until evenly distributed throughout the batter.

    1. Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan and spread it out evenly with a spatula.

    1. Bake in the preheated oven for 45-55 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.

    1. Once baked, remove the loaf from the oven and allow it to cool in the pan for 10-15 minutes.

    1. Carefully transfer the loaf to a wire rack to cool completely before slicing.

    1. Once cooled, slice the Healthy Lemon Bread with Blueberries into thick slices and serve.
