I love simple and quick recipes that can easily double as breakfast or snack, like blueberry muffin bread, blueberry almond power muffins, and banana muffins. Today’s Greek yogurt apple blueberry bread is no exception. You’ll appreciate the list of wholesome ingredients– Greek yogurt, honey, apple, blueberries, warm spices, and not much else. It’s made without refined sugar, similar to my Greek yogurt zucchini bread with a fun and flavorful fruity twist.

  • Made with zero refined sugar

Behind the Recipe

I used my Greek yogurt zucchini bread as the starting point for today’s recipe, making a couple changes and additions along the way. We’ll replace shredded zucchini with shredded apple and add some blueberries. You can use fresh or frozen blueberries, or leave them out completely. Another option is to replace the blueberries with chopped nuts, dried berries, or raisins. (Do the raisins! Do the raisins!) I also added a little nutmeg, which is always a good buddy for apple.

To sweeten this bread, I used honey instead of agave. Since apples and blueberries are sweet, I reduced the liquid sweetener down from 1/2 cup to 6 Tablespoons. I love that this quick bread isn’t overly sweet. If you want a little more sweetness, you can use 1/2 cup.

Apples are pretty heavy with moisture. A good thing in baking, but there is such a thing as too much moisture. It can weigh down the bread. To lift it back up, I increased the baking powder to 1 teaspoon. In fact, if you notice your Greek yogurt zucchini bread not rising enough, try making the same change.

Greek yogurt apple blueberry bread with zero refined sugar! Made with honey, apples, blueberries, and Greek yogurt, this quick bread is a simple healthy snack or breakfast! 


  • 1/3 cup (80ml) canola, vegetable, or melted coconut oil
  • 6 Tablespoons (90ml) honey
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 cup (121g) plain Greek yogurt
  • 1 and 1/2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 1 cup shredded apple (about 1 apple)
  • 1 and 1/2 cups (188g) all-purpose flour (spoon & leveled)
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 cup (190g) fresh or frozen blueberries (do not thaw)


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F (177°C) and grease a 9×5 inch loaf pan.
  2. Whisk the oil, honey, egg, yogurt, vanilla, and apple together in a medium bowl until combined. In a large bowl, whisk the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, and blueberries together. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix with a large wooden spoon or rubber spatula until combined. Avoid overmixing.
  3. Spread batter into the prepared loaf pan. Bake for 40-50 minutes. Baking times vary, so keep an eye on yours. The bread is done when a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. If you find the top of the bread is browning too quickly in the oven, loosely cover it with aluminum foil.
  4. Remove the bread from the oven and set on a wire rack. Allow to cool completely before slicing and serving.
  5. Cover and store leftover bread at room temperature for up to 5 days.


  1. Make Ahead Instructions: Freeze bread for up to 3 months. Thaw overnight in the refrigerator and allow to come to room temperature before serving.
  2. Special Tools: Glass Mixing Bowls, Box Grater, Measuring Cups, 9×5 Loaf Pan, and Whisk
  3. Muffins: Prepare batter as instructed. Grease a 12-count muffin pan or use liners. Fill with batter all the way to the top. Bake for 5 minutes at 425°F (218°C) then, keeping the muffins in the oven, lower the oven temperature to 350°F (177°C) and continue to bake for an additional 13-14 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean. Allow to cool in the pan for 5 minutes before serving. Makes about 12 muffins.
  4. Shredded Apple: I use a box grater to shred the apple. I peeled it first. No need to blot the shredded apple before adding to the batter. I bake this bread with either Granny Smith or Fuji apple, but most apple varieties would be great!

Reader Questions and Reviews

  1. Hi Sally,
    Can you substitute the Greek yogurt with so delicious dairy free yogurt? It’s made with coconut milk.
    Thank you!

  2. Cam I skip the apple? Blueberry yogurt bread sounds just as good. I just don’t have an apple.

    1. Hi Cynthia! You can leave out the apple, but the bread won’t be as moist or sweet. Increase yogurt to 3/4 cup and honey to 8 Tbsp (1/2 cup).

  3. Hi Sally!

    So I had made this recipe with the only substitutions being apple sauce and oat flour in place of the whole wheat. The bread came out dense, moist, and rich in flavor. I understand the deterrent against applesauce as the ingredient is too wet for the mixture, but I think the oat flour was able to offset that a bit.

    1. Mini pans come in many different sizes so I’m unsure exactly how long yours will take. If they are larger than a muffin I would start checking them after 15-20 minutes. Enjoy!

  4. I made this a couple of nights ago and it was so delicious!! This will definitely be something I make often in our house 🙂

  5. I’m officially addicted to Sally’s baking addiction 🙂 I just made this and it turned out wonderfully! I didn’t have any Greek yogurt so I subbed with sour cream instead, still good! After i grated the apple there was a puddle of juice left, I didn’t know if I should add that in or not, but I went for it. The batter wasn’t overly wet from it and it came out just fine. And because my sweet tooth was asking for more, I added your maple glaze from your pumpkin spice muffins on top. Paired nicely and hit the spot!!

  6. Sally, I love this bread! I love that it doesn’t have any sugar in it! Thank you so much for sharing this will all of us!
    Do you think that a pumpkin bread could work similarly to this without sugar? I am trying to avoid added sugars and most recipes I have found use an artificial sugar substitute which I don’t really care for.
    Thank you once again! You are awesome and I love every recipe of yours that I have made!

    1. Hi Mary! I’ve never made pumpkin bread without any refined sugars but you can definitely try replacing some of the yogurt and/or shredded apples in this recipe with canned pumpkin. Be sure to add some pumpkin spices too like cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger.

  7. This recipe is awesome! Just perfect, especially if you are trying to cut back on sugar! You won’t even notice it is missing with the sweetness from the apples, blueberries, and honey!

  8. Hi Sally – would leaving out the blueberries change the end result of the bread or do you suggest altering any other ingredients if I do?

    Thank you so much!

  9. Love this! Perfect amount of sweetness to feel like a treat, but not overindulgent. The yogurt helps to create a nice moist crumb. So good!

  10. I made this and used Kosher salt instead of regular. It came out kind of salty so I’m wondering if regular salt would have avoided that problem?

    1. Hi Yasemin, this is a very lightly sweetened loaf. I usually use regular table salt. (Haven’t tested it with kosher salt.) Feel free to reduce the amount if you decide to try it again.

  11. I made this today for my family and it came out great! This is a lightly sweetened quick bread which is one of the things I enjoyed most about it! It was so easy to make with my 6 year old and the entire family truly enjoyed it.

  12. Hi Sally,

    I plan on making this today, however just wondering;
    1. when you say “prepared loaf pan”, do you grease the pan with canola oil? or line it with baking paper… or maybe both?
    2. when you say ‘whisk’ … can i use an electrical hand mixer? or should it be mixed by manually by hand?


    1. Hi Roula, I simply spray my loaf pan with non-stick baking spray. For this batter I whisk the ingredients by hand – no need for a mixer but you can use one if you wish.

      1. Thank you so much Sally !
        Last week I made your moist carrot cake and banana cake.
        They were an absolute hit !!
        I’ve been asked to make them often haha!
        Thank you again, I truly appreciate and love your work.
        Roula xx

  13. Another delicious recipe from Sally! I’ve been trying to cut back on sugar but still want to satisfy my sweet tooth and baking hobby, and this recipe was perfect! Easy to make and came out perfectly. Moist and flavorful. Will be making again soon!

  14. Hi Sally! Would this recipe work if I replaced the apple with lemon? I’m trying to find a lemon blueberry loaf recipe and not sure if I can do it based off this recipe? If so, are there any specific modifications I should make? Thank you so much!!

  15. Hi Sally,

    Would a pear work instead of an apple? Got some great ones from the farmers market today and looking for creative ways to use them!

    1. Hi Diana, We haven’t tried shredded/grated pear yet, but I don’t think it will be an issue. If the shredded pear seems too wet, dab it with a paper towel before adding to the batter. I wouldn’t change anything else in the recipe. If you are interested, here are some more recipes that use pears!

  16. Hats off to you, Sally. As has been the case with every Sally’s Baking Addiction recipe I’ve tried, (and during quarantine I’ve tried several) this quick bread was easy and delicious. I love the fact that honey, apple, and yogurt were used along with the blueberries, making this a not-too-sweet breakfast or snack. Really yummy.

  17. Hello,

    Can I chop my apples instead of shredding it? Or does shredding help with the moisture content of it?

    Thanks in advance!

  18. Hello Sally,
    Love love all your recipes I’ve tried!!
    I’m going to make the Greek yogurt blueberry apple bread and wondering if you can double that and divide it into 2 bread pans? And can you do this for most sweet bread recipes like banana bread, ect?
    Thank you so much for all the wonderful recipes and the beautiful website!

    1. Hi Mary, Most quick bread recipes (including this one) can be doubled, yes!

  19. This is a winner. So easy to make and so tasty. You could not tell it does not have sugar or butter. My oldest daughter loves it with a bit of peanut butter and banana on top. I just eat it on its own. Excellent.

  20. Hi Sally,
    This is the second time I’m commenting on one of your recipes! Once again the result was amazing! Everyone loved the apple bread; it was delicious and so easy to make!! Have a nice day!

  21. Delicious and love that it doesn’t have added sugar or butter. I love your recipes – every one I have tried has been great!!

  22. HELP!!!!!

    I made this recipe once already and it was not only kids friendly make but it was gone in a flash! (Shhhh is what Daddy thought :)) it is DELICIOUS!!!

    I did it again for a Easter get2gether tomorrow and withbthe kids running around, I forgot to put the coconut oil in!!!!

    It looks ok, but I am afraid it will be too dry or terrible…. should I bake another one or just see how it goes?

    Hope to hear back soon!

    Thank you!

    1. Hi Monica, the bread might be a bit dry without the oil. It’s probably best to make another loaf, but definitely give it a try before you do!

  23. This looks really delicious. If I only have regular yogurt vs Greek, do you recommend draining it?

    1. Hi Sarah! If it’s especially watery, you can drain some water, but we’ve never had an issue using regular yogurt.

    1. Hi Kathleen, we haven’t tested this recipe with gluten free flour. Let us know if you decide to give it a try!

  24. I followed the recipe exactly, minus subbing the all purpose flour for whole wheat. It still turned out perfectly moist! According to my family, it was a hit. Will be making again 🙂

  25. I made this today and the fragrance when it was baking was divine. Our first slice (must confess, was still slightly warm!) – absolutely delicious! It was so very moist and just sweet enough! THANKS SO MUCH for another great recipe.

  26. Hi Sally,
    Would love to try your apple blueberry bread. Can I replace the honey
    With maple syrup. Thank you

    1. Hi Marina, Yes you can use pure maple syrup in place of the honey. Enjoy!

  27. Would it be possible to make this with sugar? And does this double well?

    Just got a huge batch of fresh blueberries and can’t wait to start baking!!

    1. Hi Xenia, the batter should still come together nicely if you substitute the liquid sweetener with brown sugar. We’ve used an even substitution and haven’t had an issue. Rather than doubling, it’s best to make two separate batches.
