Lemon Rosemary Olive Oil Bread

Posted Mar 21 2010 1:57pm
Made this bread with my sister, and she was reading off the ingredient list and forgot to tell me to put sugar in! Haha! It actually came out just fine, and tastes more savory. But, mmm I would've liked a little sweetness. This bread is made with whole wheat flour and contains lots of healthy fats from the olive oil. Enjoy!


3 cups whole wheat flour
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1 cup toasted almonds or pine nuts, divided
3 eggs
1 cup extra virgin olive oil
1 cup plus 2 Tbsp. sugar, divided (optional, if you want a dinner/non sweet bread then, omit some)
2 cups lemon yogurt
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice (or the juice of 2-3 large lemons)
1 Tbsp. grated lemon rind
1 Tbsp. dried rosemary, crushed
1 tsp. dried thyme


1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees. 2. Sift together the flour, salt, soda, and baking powder in a medium bowl. Stir in 3/4 cup of the nuts. 3. Beat the eggs in a large bowl. Add the olive oil and sugar and beat until fluffy. Stir in the yogurt, then the lemon juice, lemon rind, rosemary, and thyme. Stir in the dry ingredients, just until moistened. 4. Pour batter in 9 inch loaf pan. Sprinkle the remaining nuts over the top of the batter. Sprinkle each loaf with 1 tbsp. sugar. Bake for 1 hour.  *Recipe changed from Colavita's website
