Blueberry Streusel Bread


2 1/2 cups almond flour

3/4 teaspoon baking soda

1/4 teaspoon sea salt

4 eggs, room temperature

1/3 cup coconut oil, melted

2/3 cup maple syrup

1 teaspoon lemon zest, packed

1 tablespoon lemon juice

2 tablespoons vanilla extract

4 ounces blueberries


Streusel Topping


1 cup almond flour

2 tablespoon coconut oil, melted

2 tablespoon maple syrup


Preheat oven to 350F

Prepare pans by lining with parchment paper. Alternatively you can use silicon molds (the almond flour does not stick to the silicon).

In a small bowl, mix together all of the dry ingredients thoroughly. In a separate, medium bowl, whisk together the wet ingredients.  Pour the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients and mix until just combined.

Pour the batter into the cake molds and top with blueberries. Use a spoon to lightly swirl the blueberries into the cake.

Mix together the ingredients for the streusel, until it forms a cookie dough-like texture. Crumble the streusel onto each cake mold and pop in the oven.  Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, until the cake pulls away from the sides and is golden brown.  Turn out of cake molds an cool completely before cutting. Enjoy!

    I kept returning it to the oven but it simply wouldn’t cook through. Used a 9×5 pan. Tastes great but frustrated it didn’t properly turn out. What did I do wrong?

      Hmmm, I am not sure. Any other modifications to the recipe? For me, baking a standard sized loaf pan for about 25 minutes usually does the trick. All ovens are different though!

    Can i use whole wheat flour or whole wheat pastry flour in place of the almonds since I am not gluten sensitive?

    Obsessed with this bread. And subbing every type of berry in too. But is there a type-o for the cook time? I’ve made it multiple times and it seems to take double the time listed. Is that what you would reccomend? Thanks!
