Prep: 15Cook: 40Total: 55 minutes
Yield 1 loaf 1x



  • 2 cups almond flour
  • 1/2 cup coconut flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2 cup melted coconut oil
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup almond milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 cup lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons poppy seeds
  • 2 tbsp lemon zest

Optional Glaze (not paleo!)

  • 1.5 cups powdered sugar
  • 23 tbsp almond milk
  • 1 tsp lemon juice


1. Preheat oven to 350F and line a bread loaf pan with parchment paper AND cooking spray. The paper will assist with an easy release of the bread and is a key step.

2. In a small bowl, mix almond flour, coconut flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.

3. In a large bowl, whisk three eggs.

4. Stir in coconut oil, honey, almond milk, vanilla, and lemon juice.

5. Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients until completely combined.

6. Stir in poppy seeds and lemon zest, then pour into bread pan.

7. Place in oven and bake for 50-60 minutes (will depend on bread pan, mine was exactly 9×5 and took ~50 min), or until toothpick comes out clean. Cover halfway through if starts to brown on top.

8. While baking, prepare glaze by whisking together powdered sugar, almond milk, and lemon juice.

9. Let loaf cool completely before glazing.

10. Enjoy! Store on counter for up to 48 hours before putting in fridge.
