  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 ¼ cups plain goat milk yogurt such as Redwood Hill Farms
  • ¼ cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 3 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 cup + 2 teaspoon all-purpose flour divided
  • ¾ cup + 2 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon grated lemon zest
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 ½ teaspoon ground ginger
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 ½ cups frozen mixed berries such as blackberries, blueberries & raspberries


  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Coat a 8½ by 4½ -inch loaf pan with cooking spray.
  • In a medium-sized bowl, whisk the 2 eggs. Stir in the goat milk yogurt, applesauce, olive oil and vanilla extract.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together the whole wheat flour, 1 cup all-purpose flour, brown sugar, lemon zest, baking powder, baking soda, ground ginger and salt.
  • Pour the yogurt mixture into the flour mixture. Stir to combine.
  • In a small bowl, stir together the frozen berries and the remaining 2 teaspoons all-purpose flour.
  • Stir the flour-coated berries into the batter and mix until just combined.
  • Pour the batter into prepared pan and level with a spatula.
  • Bake until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out with only a few crumbs attached, 55 to 60 minutes. Let the bread sit in the pan for 10 minutes.
  • Run a knife around the outside and turn the pan upside down to release the bread. Let cool on a wire rack, then slice and serve.
