Recipe Card

For the Lemon Poppy Seed Loaf


  • 1 3/4 cups unsweetened, warm almond milk
  • 1 cup refined coconut oil, melted
  • 2 lemons, zested (2 tablespoons) and juiced (1/4 cup)
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 cup cane sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3 cups all purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup poppy seeds

For the Glaze


  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1-2 tablespoons lemon juice


  • Step 1

    Preheat oven to 350ºF. Grease a 9x5" loaf pan with coconut oil and lightly flour; set aside.

  • Step 2

    In a large bowl whisk together warm almond milk, melted coconut oil, vanilla extract, lemon juice and lemon zest. Whisk in sugar, then mix in baking powder and salt. Gradually add flour, 1 cup at a time, whisking in between each addition. Once batter is smooth add the poppy seeds and mix well to distribute evenly.

  • Step 3

    Pour batter evenly into prepared pan, using a spatula to smooth. Bake for 45-50 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Let cool in the pan at least 10 minutes.

  • Step 4

    Make the glaze: whisk powdered sugar and lemon juice until smooth. Add lemon juice as needed to reach desired consistency. Pour evenly over the loaf. Allow to set for 15-20 minutes, then slice!
