Perfect bright citrus flavor and perfectly moist loaf this Gluten Free Lemon Loaf is the perfect pairing to any coffee or tea.

What Makes This Recipe Great

We just finally took all of them lemons off of our lemon tree because it was about to fall over it was so full!  Now we have a massive bag of lemons to use and I am so excited.  This lemon loaf is gluten free and dairy free but of course I had to make a thick lemony glaze on top. Lemons have high amounts of vitamin c which is amazing for immunity so you know the kids need lots of this loaf.

We love this recipe for many reasons quick, easy, delicious but mainly we love it because this loaf has the perfect amount of sweetness. The coconut sugar adds just the right amount sweetness to this loaf without having an overbearing sting-your-teeth because the pure sugar overwhelms the rest of the loaf flavor.

  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp salt

Instructions 

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and line a loaf pan with parchment paper.
  • In a bowl combine almond flour, arrowroot flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt and coconut sugar and whisk to combine.  Then add in almond milk, ghee, dairy free yogurt, eggs, vanilla extract, lemon extract and lemon juice and whisk to fully combine.
  • Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan and bake for 35-40 minutes or until lightly browned and doesn’t jiggle in the middle when you lightly shake it.
  • Once cooked, let it cool completely.
  • In a small bowl combine confectioners sugar and lemon juice and stir until smooth. It should be thick and spreadable – add more lemon juice if needed!

Notes

  • My favorite dairy free yogurt is kite hill.
  • If you aren’t dairy free you can use regular plain yogurt.
