Ingredients

  • 1 cup plus 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup whole-wheat flour, preferably white whole-wheat
  • 1 ½ teaspoons baking powder
  • ¾ teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup blueberries
  • 1 egg yolk
  • zest from 1 lemon plus 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • ¾ cup turbinado sugar
  • 2/3 cup avocado oil or organic canola oil
  • 1/4 cup orange juice
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • ½ teaspoon almond extract
  • 2 egg whites
  • 2 tablespoons sliced almonds

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat a 1.5 quart loaf pan (8.5 by 4.5 by 2.5 inches) with cooking spray.
  2. Whisk all-purpose flour, whole-wheat flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a medium bowl. Add the blueberries to the flour mixture and toss to coat.
  3. Whisk egg yolk, zest, lemon juice, sugar, oil, orange juice, vanilla and almond extract in a large bowl until smooth. Add the dry mixture to the wet mixture and stir to combine. Beat egg whites in a clean bowl until soft peaks form. Fold the whites into the batter
  4. Spread the batter in the prepared pan. Sprinkle with almonds. Transfer to the oven and bake until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, 55 to 65 minutes. Let cool in the pan 25 minutes before running a knife along the edges and turning out, cool right-side-up on wire rack.
