This lemon loaf is truly the most perfect Paleo Lemon Loaf...ever! It's made with a mix of almond and coconut flour to keep it grain-free, gluten-free, and light in texture. And it's bursting with fresh lemon zest in every bite. Drizzle this loaf with a lemony glaze made for the perfect spring treat!

Ingredients

Lemon loaf:

  • 2 cups almond flour
  • 3 tablespoons coconut flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 2 very ripe bananas mashed (about 3/4 cup)
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil melted
  • 1 lemon zested
  • 1 lemon juiced
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract

Lemon glaze:

  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 tablespoon dairy-free milk
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350F.
  • Line a 9x5 loaf pan with parchment paper (greasing the inside first, so that the parchment paper sticks!).
  • In a large bowl, mix together the almond flour, coconut flour, baking soda, baking powder, sea salt. Set aside.
  • In another bowl, mix together the eggs, maple syrup, melted coconut oil, mashed bananas, lemon zest, lemon juice, and vanilla extract.
  • Pour the wet mixture into the dry and stir to combine.
  • Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan.
  • Bake for 25 minutes until the top is golden brown, then lightly cover with foil and bake for another 25-30 minutes. The loaf will be done, once a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
  • Remove from the oven and allow to cool completely.
  • To make the glaze, whisk together the powdered sugar with the dairy-free milk and lemon juice - the consistency should be super thick! If it is runny at all, then add more powdered sugar.
  • Once the loaf has completely cooled, drizzle the glaze over the loaf.
  • Slice and enjoy!

Notes

If you are adding the fresh blueberries, add them into the batter at Step 5.
