I debated calling this a “loaf” or “bread” or “cake” even, but ultimately decided on “breakfast bread”. I decided the breakfast part is important to emphasize that the ingredients are all nutritious, filling, and won’t cause a sugar crash (sweetened with just a touch of honey)!

With a base of oat flour, this bread is *almost* equivalent to a nutritious bowl of oatmeal for breakfast. Except the lemon and blueberry make it feel a lot more springy than a bowl of wintery oatmeal!

The inspiration for this loaf came from a recipe posted on Pinch of Yum posted the other week — you can find that here. BUTTT, Lindsay insisted that white sugar was the best/only way to sweeten this Blueberry Lemon Bread. Challenge accepted. (If you are new to my blog, I love to take traditionally sugar-laden treats and find ways to naturally sweeten them!)

While I am sure The Pinch of Yum loaf is super delicious, I set out to make a gluten and refined-sugar free version, so I could eat the loaf for breakfast, without a sugar crash at 10am. And so now you can have this loaf for breakfast, and Lindsay’s for dessert. Win win!
