Lemon Poppy Seed Loaf

Serves: 4

There is nothing more refreshing than the fresh flavor of lemon in the summer! Pair that with some poppy seeds and you have a ‘fit’ loaf that you can eat for breakfast, as an afternoon snack with your tea/coffee, or as a light dessert when topped with some greek yogurt and berries!

Directions

Pre heat your oven to 325 degrees. Spray your loaf pan with non stick spray. In a bowl combine your almond flour, ground flax, protein powder, baking powder, stevia and poppy seeds. In a second bowl combine your pureed tofu, egg whites, vanilla, lemon zest and fresh lemon juice. Add your wet ingredients into your dry ingredients. Mix well. Pour the batter into the loaf pan and bake for ~26 minutes. When done baking, remove the pan from the oven and allow the loaf to cool in the pan. Slice into 8 slices. Each serving is 2 slices.

I ate this light, refreshing loaf for breakfast one morning with a bowl of greek yogurt and berries. The following day, I diced up to slices and made a lemon loaf trifle using blueberries and ricotta sweetened with stevia! WoW!! Delicious!! :)
