Ingredients

  • 2 flax eggs
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar monk fruit, brown or cane
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup lemon juice
  • 1 1/2 cups cassava flour
  • 1/2 cup almond flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 tbsp poppy seeds
  • 1 1/2 tbsp lemon zest

Lemon Glaze

  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 4 tsp lemon juice
  • 1 tsp lemon zest
  • 1/2 tbsp cashew milk

Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F and grab a 9×5 loaf pan. Spray the pan with cooking spray and set aside.

  2. Whisk together all the wet ingredients – including the sugar.

  3. Fold in the dry ingredients until just combined, being careful not over mix!

  4. Scoop the batter into your prepared baking dish – using a spatula if necessary to create an even layer.

  5. Bake the bread for 45 minutes or until a toothpick can poke the bread and come out clean.

  6. Let the bread cool for 5 minutes before removing it from the pan and letting it cool completely (patience peeps) on a cool wrack.

  7. While the bread is cooling – make the glaze! Whisk everything together in a small bowl and once the bread is cool, pour that sugary sweetness all over the loaf.

  8. Slice into however many pieces makes your heart happy and enjoy within 2 days or 5 days being refrigerated.
