Legit Out Of This World Lemon Loaf
No one said I was a food photographer, ok?! I just know how to whip up delicious low carb, nutrient dense and simple dessert recipes to curb my cravings, nourish my body and fill my heart with organic lemony joy!
As I move through this antimicrobial protocol that has me ditching most things indulgent and naughty (let’s be real, ALL things indulgent and naughty), I’ve decided that I deserve to eat cake, cookies and muffins for breakfast every. damn. day.
And I do.
I’ve been spending my time, money and creative energy in the kitchen making whole food based desserts which don’t feed pathogens in the body, don’t spike blood sugar levels and actually nourish my temple which is fighting so hard for me to be the healthiest possible version of myself.
Why would I give her anything else?!
So, without further ado here is my simple, one bowl Legit Out Of This World Lemon Loaf recipe that you can eat for breakfast, dessert, share with your loves or gobble it all up like I did before being able to snap a decent photo of the whole thing!
1 1/2 cups almond flour
1/4 cup coconut flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 tablespoon lemon zest
1/3 cup Lakanto monk fruit sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
3 large eggs
1/4 cup lemon juice
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 cup unsweetened plain coconut yogurt
1 cup unsweetened nut milk of choice
1/4 cup butter flavoured coconut oil (or plain coconut oil)
2 lemons, zested and juiced
Whip It Up Like So:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Spray or rub the inside of a bread loaf pan with coconut oil or line with parchment paper so the loaf will come out easily.
Put all ingredients for loaf in a food processor or high speed blender. Mix in high for 2 - 3 minutes.
Pour combined ingredients into loaf pan and place in the oven for 60 - 120 minutes or until a fork comes out clean when you insert in the centre of the loaf. Time differs based on type of stove ie gas vs electrical.
Mix the lemon juice and ‘sugar’ for icing with a fork or whisk. Pour overtop the warm loaf.
Try your best and allow to cool for 20 - 30 minutes before devouring. Slice into slices or squares. It tastes sooooo much better once cool and especially on day 2
Enjoy every bite.
Happy Spring my Loves xo 🍋
Be well with Hope
