Lemon Poppy Seed Bread

This gluten-free recipe is very simple to prepare and super flavorful, thanks to the wholesome ingredients like lemon juice, coconut sugar, and almond flour. It makes a delicious, healthy option… to serve for breakfast, snack, or even dessert.

I love experimenting with gluten-free flours. There are so many to choose from, which is great but also unnerving as decision time approaches. Luckily for me I used the right combo on the very first try. The bread turns out soft and moist but also a bit dense (similar to banana bread). And I personally love any and all thing lemon. Basically…I ate it all.

  4. Pour wet ingredients into the bowl of dry ingredients and whisk until smooth and well combined.
  5. Pour bread batter into loaf pan
  6. Bake for 36-40 minutes, or until golden brown on top and toothpick or knife comes out clean when inserted into the middle of the bread.

Notes

  • You can substitute the avocado oil with olive oil, melted coconut oil, or melted grass-fed butter.
  • I used grass-fed whole milk. Keep it dairt-free by using cashew milk, almond milk, or any full-fat milk alternative.
