Oh man, I needed this Easy Low Carb Lemon Blueberry Bread this week! The flavors and colors are so cheery and bright that I could feel Spring right around the corner…even though it was snowing.

I love this bread as is but I’ve included and optional glaze to make it ultra decadent. Or as decadent as you can get while staying in Ketosis anyway. Get baking and this bread can be your in about an hour.

🥘Ingredients:

Of course you can use any type of low carb sweetener that you like but allulose is our favorite. You can read all about Low Carb Sweeteners here.

Xanthan gum helps build a stronger structure in low carb breads. Since most low carb flours are gluten free, the eggs are the only binding agent you’ll have unless you use xanthan gum or psyllium husk powder.

  • ½ tsp Salt
  • ⅓ cup Lemon Juice

Use fresh lemon juice for this recipe.

  • 2 tbsp Lemon Zest
  • ⅓ cup Butter – melted

You can use melted coconut oil if you want to keep this bread dairy free.

  • 3 Eggs at room temperature

This is IMPORTANT. If your eggs are cold, straight fromt he frisge, you butter (or coconut oil) will solidify again and you mix won’t be quite uniform.

Set them in a bowl of warm water for a few minutes if you’re ready to make you bread now.

I love the wild frozen blueberries because they’re smaller they spread the flavor further but they rarely have them at my tiny mountain store in the sticks. You can use fresh or frozen berries though.

Optional Glaze

👩🏾‍🍳How to make the Lemon Bread:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F (176C). Oil a small 6.6*3.5 loaf pan. You can use a larger loaf pan if you like but the top will not be rounded after baking.
  2. In a large bowl, stir together all of the dry ingredients.
  3. In a separate bowl, mix all of the wet ingredients. Fold in the blueberries once the mixture is combined. Slowly incorporate into the dry mixture taking care to not mix vigorously and damage the whole berries.
  4. Transfer the batter into the loaf pan. Carefully smooth the top without pressing to hard.
  5. Bake for 40 minutes and check for browning. If it is getting too brown, lightly tent with foil and bake for 15-20 more minutes until done. Do the toothpick test to make sure it comes out clean.Let cool COMPLETELY on a wire rack before attempting to remove it from the pan. Serve or continue on to glaze.

Optional Glaze

  • In a small bowl, make the glaze by whisking ½ cup allulose and 2 tbsp lemon juice. If glaze is not thick enough for your liking, add more sweetener a bit at a time until you get the consistency you want. Once the bread has cooled, drizzle the lemon glaze over it and serve.

🍽️Equipment:

  • Sm. Bread Pan

Bread Pans come in a few different sizes and it’s difficult to tell the difference. I used a pan like this so that the finished bread would round in the center and turn out taller.

It’s the same size pan I use for the Keto Almond Yeast Bread.
