Lemon Poppy Seed Loaf

Ingredients

2 cups gluten free rolled oats, ground into a flour
1/2 cup stevia
1 T baking powder
1/4 cup poppy seeds
3/4 cup + 2 T dairy free milk
1 large egg
6 T nut butter of choice, melted
2 T lemon juice
2 T lemon zest
1 tsp vanilla extract
pinch sea salt

For the frosting:

4-6 T coconut butter, melted
2 T granulated sweetener of choice
Dairy free milk to thin out

MAKE IT HAPPEN

  • Preheat the oven to 350.
  • Grease a loaf pan with cooking spray and set aside.
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine the dry ingredients and mix well. Add the lemon zest and poppy seeds and set aside.
  • In a small bowl, whisk the milk, lemon juice, vanilla extract and egg. Pour into the dry mixture. Add the melted nut butter and mix very well until a batter is formed.
  • Transfer the batter to the loaf pan or baking dish. Bake for 25-35 minutes, depending on your oven, or until golden brown on top and a toothpick comes on clean.
  • Remove from oven and allow to cool completely before serving or frosting.
  • To make the frostings
  • Combine all the ingredients and using a tablespoon, add dairy free milk until a thick, firm batter is formed.
  • *Notes
    The loaf is freezer friendly- It’s best kept in the refrigerator. If you decide to use the frosting, it’s best to keep them separate.
