While completing a recent 21-Day Sugar Detox, I saw a lemon poppy seed loaf at the grocery store and caught myself drooling. I decided it was time for me to perfect a 21DSD-friendly Lemon Poppy Seed Loaf. I hope you enjoy the recipe as much as I do!
Lemon Poppy Seed Loaf
grain-free • gluten-free • sugar-free
PREP TIME: 15 minutes
COOK TIME: 70 minutes + 25 minutes to cool

- 1 2/3 cup almond flour
- zest of 4 lemons
- 2 lemons, juiced
- 2 tsp. poppy seeds
- 1 tsp. vanilla
- ½ tsp. sea salt
- optional: ¼ cup coconut butter, melted
Preheat oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit. Grease a loaf pan with coconut oil and line with parchment paper.
Combine the first four ingredients in a food processor and mix until combined. Then add the remaining ingredients and mix until just combined.
