Vegan Lemon Loaf

This iced lemon bread recipe has been a long time in the making.

It was inspired by reader feedback I received on a Healthy Lemon Cake I posted a few years ago. People loved the subtly tart and sweet flavor of that cake, but many of you were saying the same thing: that you wanted a lemon cake that was taller, with a much lighter and fluffier texture.

So here it finally is – a bigger, fatter, bolder vegan lemon loaf!

I thought about simply doubling the ingredients of the original to make a larger loaf. But with half a cup of lemon juice already in the recipe, I feared this might make things way too acidic.

So I played around and was even able to cut down the oil in the process.

Vegan Lemon Bread Healthy

I made the recipe for a brunch last Sunday, because of course I did.

You know how much I love brunch!

(For the record, brunch is always lunch for me. No way I can go until after noon before eating any food.)

Our potluck brunch also included english muffins, frosted donuts, roasted potatoes, Vegan Mac And Cheese, and vegan lasagna soup… so, um, lots of carbs.

While I do love all of the Keto Dessert Recipes on the blog, we also really love carbs over here.

This secretly vegan lemon bread recipe can be soy free, gluten free, and oil free (although I personally prefer the version with oil).

Because so many readers ask about using almond flour in my recipes, I did go ahead and test it here. The results were delicious but not very attractive.

The recipe will also work as Vegan Lemon Cupcakes: Preheat the oven to 350 F, and bake 17 minutes or until the cupcakes have risen and a toothpick inserted into the center of a cupcake comes out mostly clean.

Cook Time 50 minutes
Total Time 50 minutes
Servings 10 – 13 slices
Calories 150kcal

Ingredients

  • 2 cups flour (For flourless, make this Keto Lemon Bread)
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1 cup sugar, or xylitol for sugar free
  • 3/4 cup milk of choice
  • 1/2 cup plain yogurt, such as almondmilk yogurt
  • 1/4 cup oil, or sub applesauce for fat free
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • zest of 1 large or 2 small lemons (1 tbsp total – don’t omit)
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract

Instructions

  • The recipe works with spelt, white, or oat flour. It technically works with almond flour (and tastes delicious) but won’t rise or look pretty. Gluten free all purpose flour can work but will be much denser. I prefer the oil version’s flavor and texture, but if you’re used to the texture of oil free baked goods it’s fine to sub applesauce.

    Preheat oven to 350 F. Grease a 9×5 loaf pan. In a large bowl, combine all dry ingredients. Whisk liquid ingredients in a separate bowl, combine wet and dry, then stir until just evenly mixed. Spread into the pan. Bake 50-55 minutes, or until loaf has risen and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. If desired, frost with either melted Coconut Butter or 1/2 cup powdered sugar combined with 1 tbsp milk of choice.
