Gluten Free Lemon Olive Oil Loaf

With the temps getting warmer I’ve been thinking about the recipes I grew up making with my mom. Honestly, the list isn’t long, but I distinctly remember having lemon pound cake a few times and thinking it was a bit boring. But then when you get older you start to really appreciate all of the foods you didn’t get when you were younger. Remember when you didn’t like meat or avocados or sushi? Even though I’ve always been a “savory” girl I still missed out on so much good food when I was young and foolish.

I’ve been baking a lot of paleo bread lately, but not a lot of summery flavors, so it was time for something lemon.  I can’t wait to cook this when I can finally get together with friends again to share it! And I think its the perfect candidate for a summer French Toast!

What you need to make a Gluten Free Lemon Olive Oil Loaf:

  • Cassava flour–I love cassava flour for nearly all of my grain free breads!
  • Tapioca Starch or Arrowroot Flour – I like adding a bit of this in my dry ingredients to add chew to the texture
  • Organic cane sugar or coconut sugar
  • Baking soda
  • Olive oil – I love the flavor blend of the olive oil and lemon in this bread!
  • Honey – adds moisture and sweetness
  • Eggs – can be replaced with flax eggs if needed
  • Lemon juice– use juice from one fresh-squeezed lemon
  • Full fat coconut milk, or another non-dairy milk
