I probably have the world’s biggest sweet tooth. If it were possible to be healthy and fit and live off treats – I’d be doing it. Since I’ve developed numerous food allergies and sensitivities, and embarked upon a healthy lifestyle quest, eating sweets is pretty much out of the question. Unfortunately, my sweet tooth missed that memo.
Today I am so excited to share a brand new recipe with you. It is one that came entirely from my head – no guidance at all – and shockingly, it turned out. This lemon poppy seed loaf is sugar free, lactose free and gluten free, but the best part is that you’d never even suspect it. Oh and it is pretty much fool proof!
Sugar, Lactose and Gluten Free Lemon Poppy Seed Loaf
1 and 1/3 cup ground almonds (purchase as is – or home made by blending almonds in a food processor until a flour forms)
1/2 cup fat free Greek yogurt (naturally lactose free)
3 droppers full of liquid stevia
1/3 cup of real lemon juice (or the juice of two full lemons)
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp vanilla
4 egg whites
1/4 cup of poppy seeds (more or less depending on your taste)
pinch of salt
1, Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees.
2. Mix all ingredients together in a large bowl.
3. Using coconut oil, grease a loaf pan.
4. Bake for 30 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
5. Allow to cool and enjoy.
Ever since it got cold out I’ve been feeling like baking – is anyone else experiencing this urge?
