Vegan Blueberry Lemon Loaf

Over the weekend I picked up the most perfectly fresh, sweet summer blueberries. After using some of them in this rainbow salad I decided to I needed to finally make the Vegan Blueberry Lemon Loaf I’ve been dreaming up since I started spotting blueberries at the farmers markets this season.

I’ve always been a fan of banana bread, coffee cake and other bread-y treats (especially as afternoon snacks and for brunch). I love this recipe because it’s just-sweet-enough, both hearty and soft on the inside and crispy on the outside (especially when you toast slices). I sprinkled a little coconut sugar on top before baking, which adds a delicious crispy caramelized texture.

I used my mini loaf pan and made a few small loaves (mostly because they’re cute) instead of a large one. At this size I baked the loaves for 25 minutes, so if you use a stander 9″ x 5″ loaf plan you’ll want to add 10-15 minutes of baking time.

I opted to use spelt flour for this recipe. Regular wheat or Gluten-Free Baking Flour should work as well. If you don’t have fresh blueberries on hand, frozen should work as well!

    • I’ve only made this recipe using spelt flour but you should be able to get creative with different flours! Wheat flour is usually a 1:1 substitute for spelt, or perhaps a gluten-free mix would be good? Let me know what you end up with!
