Easy lemon blueberry bread with a light glaze is perfect for breakfast or as a sweet treat. This bread is full of lemon flavors and lightly sweetened. Any novice in the kitchen can whip this up!Jump to Recipe
This bread has a tangy lemon glaze to go over the the top. It is made with two ingredients: more lemon juice and powdered sugar. When you let the bread completely cool and lightly brush it with the glaze it will harden just little bit and give the bread a more decedent look and texture.
The blueberries give it a beautiful pop of color so I recommend not skipping this part! I used frozen blueberries and they worked great.
I don't care what time of year it is, fresh lemon flavors and blueberries just pair so well together. Spring is the best time to start pulling out this recipe combo but as I mentioned - I like it year round. I have made this bread a few times for house warming gifts and it's always a great hit with the friends and family!

What you will need for this Easy Lemon Blueberry Bread
- Oil. I used coconut oil. You have the option to use butter or canola oil as well
- Eggs. You will need two large eggs
- Sugar. I used white sugar so that the yellow hue showed more. You can use coconut sugar however your bread may look a little different from mine.
- Fresh lemons. The fresh lemon juice is a must! It will make this bread light and bright with flavor.
- Blueberries. Fresh or frozen. I used frozen for this recipe
- Flour. I used all purpose flour.
- Almond milk. You can use any milk you'd like but if you want to make this bread dairy free I suggest using a plant based milk.
- Powdered Sugar. This is for the glaze. I highly recommend the glaze. It is made with lemons so it has a tangy sweetness and it gives the bread a luxurious top. This recipe is lower in sugar so you may want this little added sweetness to liven the bread up!
