This Lemon Poppy Seed Bread is sweet, tart, moist, and bursting with all the citrus flavors. It makes the best brunch item or snack and is perfect for summertime!
I was feeling all the lemon poppy seed vibes with my Lemon Poppy Seed Overnight Oats. Then I had an itch for a quick bread version because I just can’t get enough of the flavor. The tart, citrus taste is perfect for all things spring and summer. I don’t plan on it getting old any time soon.
Easy Lemon Poppy Seed Bread
Quick breads are awesome. They can take anywhere from 20 minutes to an hour to bake in the oven but I’ll take that any day over kneading dough, waiting for it to rise which can take hours, and then waiting longer for it to bake.
I’m a millennial, I’m a huge fan of instant gratification. Like my Chocolate Chip Banana Bread which can be whipped up in under 45 minutes. This Lemon Poppy Seed Bread is no different and only takes 15 minutes to prepare and 30 minutes in the oven. Now THAT is what I’m talking about!
The Baking Flour
Almond flour and a little tapioca flour make up the base of this delicious bread. I love using almond flour in breads as a healthy alternative to white flour. It still makes for a fluffy baked good without becoming too dry and provides so many more nutritional benefits.
Honey adds some sweetness to the bread because I feel like honey and lemon just go together you know? However feel free to use another natural sweetener of choice such as pure maple syrup or date syrup.
Alright enough talk, let’s get this bread in the oven!
