Blueberry Apple Cinnamon Yogurt Bread

I’m glad you guys enjoyed the photos from the beautiful weekend here in D.C.! They were actually all taken with my little point and shoot — check out this post for my tips for taking better point and shoot photos.

This week is going to be insane getting ready for the big moveI spent all day yesterday with my mom running errands and sorting through my clothes. I literally got rid of nearly half of them! The damage:

  • 5 huge trash bags (for Goodwill)
  • 1 huge trash bag (for the trash)
  • 4 huge shopping bags (to sell)

Sweet! I always feel so productive cleaning out my room and getting rid of stuff I don’t need. On the docket today is getting my car serviced, getting a Tb vaccine shot, sorting through old papers, and starting to PACK!

But for now — a new recipe!


I teased you guys with photos of this awesome bread on Friday, remember? :)


As always, it’s packed with nutrition AND deliciousness!



Blueberry Apple Cinnamon Yogurt Bread



  • 2 C spelt flour
  • 1/2 C brown sugar
  • 1/2 C finely ground flaxseed
  • 1 Tbsp. cinnamon
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp. salt


  • 1 C unsweetened applesauce
  • 1 C skim milk
  • 1/2 C nonfat plain yogurt
  • 2/3 C blueberries
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract


Preheat oven to 325.

1) In two separate bowls, mix dry, then wet, then add wet to dry, stirring gently until evenly mixed.

2) Pour the batter into a 9×5 pan. Top with pumpkin seeds (optional — makes it look pretty!).


3) Pop it in the oven for 55 mins to 1 hour. Fork check to make sure it’s done!


Mmmm… healthy and delicious, just how I like it :)



Enjoy! :) I already ate it all, sniff. Might need to make some more today…!


  1. 1

    Wow! That looks incredible!!

  2. 2

    This looks great! I’ve been on a blueberry kick this summer, so this fits right in. Way to go getting rid of so much stuff. I need to go through my clothes and set some aside for donations. It’s such an undertaking!

  3. 3

    Yum! That looks delicious…definitely one to add to the list of things I have to make :)

  4. 4

    Oh my! I’m drooling. Looks amazing!

  5. 5

    That seriously looks amazing!

    Good luck with the move!

  6. 6

    Looks delicious! I’m definitely making that this week. Can you substitute regular/whole wheat flour for the spelt flour?

  7. 8

    New recipe looks awesome! And it’s such a great feeling to get organized – changes my whole outlook on life when I’m de-cluttered. :)

  8. 9

    wow, that looks crazy good! i think i know what my next baking project is ;)

  9. 10

    Looks delish!
    I second that about the post-clothing-purge feeling of freedom. I have to clean out and giveaway clothes at least a couple times a year – it feels SO good to pare down my closet and get rid of the silly things that just sit there looking bored.

  10. 11

    I love getting rid of old stuff, makes more to buy new clothes!

  11. 12

    I’m not a huge fan of blueberries, so I think I’d sub something else in (raspberries, maybe) but that looks delish!

  12. 13

    I love that you topped it with pumpkin seeds. Amazing things happen to them in the oven :) Looks fANNEtastic!!

  13. 14

    Those look too awesome! fANNEtastic, indeed!

  14. 15

    Mmmmm…. this looks awesome! I know what I’m going to be doing tonight after making dinner! :) p.s. give my best to you Mom!

    Oooh, I’ve been waiting for this one.

  16. 17

    This looks super moist and delicious! When is your big move? Mine is this coming weekend! I have been packing kitchen boxes all day long, it seems. It’s really cool to move to a new city. It feels like a fresh start, even though it is just another chapter in life. :)

    • 18

      I move on Tuesday! It’s going to be crazy since I’ll be in Chicago for the Healthy Living Summit from Friday morning-Sunday night. Gah! Good luck with your move, too! :)

  17. 19

    This bread looks so tasty, I’m tempted to go buy plain yogurt right now so I can make some this afternoon!

  18. 20

    Seriously – this looks great! I need to make a batch ASAP :)

  19. 21

    Sounds like you have made a lot of progress! Good luck with the packing. Oh, I made your Almond Butter Banana Breakfast Bars this weekend and they were EXCELLENT!! Thanks for sharing!

  20. 22

    I have a HUGE container of European Style Yogurt – which, as it turns out, does NOT taste like Greek Yogurt. Or any other “tasty” yogurt, for that matter. Gross – that needs to be used ASAP! In other words, I’m happy that you’ve posted yet another delicious recipe that I want to try, and also happens to require yogurt. Whoop! ;)

    good luck with the packing!! SEE YOU FRIDAY!

  21. 24

    That looks really yummy!

  22. 25

    Yum! That looks appropriately fANNEtastic.

    I hope all the packing is going well… I’m impressed with your organization. Might inspire me to do a mini closet clean-out of my own :-)

    Looking forward to meeting you SOON!

  23. 26

    I just made this loaf it was SOOO GOOD!! Yum. I topped mine with pumpkin seeds and coconut

  24. 27

    How many servings do you think come out in a loaf?

  25. 29

    What a beautiful loaf of bread! Enjoy the HLS and good luck with the move!

  26. 30

    Wow. You were productive in cleaning out your closet!! I still need to do that with mine!

    The bread looks so good! I can almost taste it now! have fun at HLS!

  27. 31

    Looks so good! Quick question: Can I sub whole wheat for the spelt flour? Why do you use spelt flour in this recipe? :-)

    • 32

      I used spelt flour because it’s awesome! I’d recommend picking some up. It has a really nice, doughy texture and is very nutritious. You can use whole wheat flour if you want, but it might make the bread a lot more dense. Maybe try whole wheat pastry flour instead.

  28. 33

    I can’t wait to make this beautiful bread tomorrow. I love everything in it.

  29. 34

    I made this this weekend–delicious! I had a slice for breakfast and it was perfect–not too sweet and very moist.

  30. 35

    I can’t wait to try [email protected]!!

  31. 36

    I just made this bread tonight. Mmmm… it is so good! Dare I say it… fANNEtastic!

  32. 37

    I’ve been looking for a healthy lemon loaf recipe, but I couldn’t find one, so I used this recipe but I excluded the cinnamon and blueberries and added 2 T lemon zest and 2 T lemon juice instead! I also used vanilla soy milk instead of skim, and topped it off with chia seeds. It came out PERFECT. Just how I wanted! The spelt, yogurt, and applesauce made it soo chewy and delicious. It is darker than a regular lemon loaf because of the brown sugar, but tastes the same, and so much healthier. Thanks!! :)

  33. 39

    How quickly do you go through one of these loaves? I think I have a bit of a will-power control problem….. I ate about 1/3 of this loaf in one day. I think the idea that it is healthier than other cakey breads makes me somehow think that it is okay to eat it all at once…. hahah help!! I must stop doing that /:

      I’d recommend freezing half right away and then savoring the rest slowly :) Even if it’s healthy, the calories will still add up of course! I’d limit it to one thick slice per day :)
