This blueberry lemon bread is a healthy snack recipe that can be frozen and used later on a busy day. Perfect for a school lunchbox!

I love having healthy treats on hand that my whole family can enjoy. This blueberry lemon bread works well as a snack at school or a quick bite after school.

I like to freeze one of the mini-loaves so I can pull it out of the freezer on a day when I’m too busy to bake. My children do eat gluten, but I think it’s good to give them a variety of grains, and they don’t even notice that they’re not eating wheat here.

  1. Brillant! I used buy a lot this kind of cake! Can’t wait to try making them. Love the combination of lemon and blueberry in a cake!

    1. As far as I understand, pastry flour does have gluten. If you don’t have a problem with gluten, though, whole wheat pastry flour or white whole wheat flour would be good substitutes. You may want to increase the applesauce a bit because wheat flours tend to be thirstier than gluten-free flour.
