Healthy Lemon Blueberry Bread – this healthier version of lemon blueberry bread is incredibly moist and not overly sweet.  Low in sugar and fat, this loaf also contains Greek yogurt which adds some extra protein.

Tart lemon, sweet berries, Greek yogurt, and coconut oil come together beautifully in this lightened up loaf.  You won’t miss the extra sugar at all!  This is another great option for breakfast or to satisfy your sweet tooth without the guilt.

If you felt the need to get a little more decadent, you could add a sweet glaze of lemon juice and powdered sugar.  Yum.
