Description

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! 


Ingredients

  • 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)

Instructions

  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.

Notes

  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!
