This loaf is soft and moist, has the right balance between sweet and tangy, is speckled with plenty of poppies and it is truly is melt in your mouth good! This sweet treat most definitely qualifies as an easy peasy lemon squeezy kind of recipe. So, get those blenders ready!
Imagine the aroma of lemon, vanilla and maple syrup sweeping over you from your kitchen. It will put an instant smile on your face and a pure bliss feeling will being to radiate throughout your body. This blender lemon poppy seed loaf will give you all of the feels. It is one of those good mood food items that is an instant mood changer. You know how the saying goes: “when life gives you lemons” ....you turn it into something sweet. This is exactly what we are doing here.
This lemon loaf is perfect for a breakfast treat, a midday snack, or an after dinner delight. I created this to be a healthier version because let’s be real, we all love the healthy, but we still cannot resist sweet treats no matter how hard we try. So, with that being said, this shockingly enough this is vegan! It is such a tasty addictive treat that is made with no eggs, no butter, made with a non-dairy milk and the loaf itself contains no sugar (minus the icing on top).
Speaking of icing, one tip I will give is to not skip the icing. It makes the loaf! Since, the loaf itself does not contain any sugar and is naturally sweetened with blue agave or maple syrup it is not as sweet on its own. The icing is what make it so addictingly good.
Okay, so let’s set one thing straight...don’t get me wrong, I am a chocolate obsessed person and always will be. I would choose a baked chocolate good over anything else on any given day. But, honestly sometimes I can get too chocolate wasted and when that happens I like to change it up. So, when I am looking for that good change and need an exceptional yet healthier sweet treat, this is my go to. Once you try this, I know it will be yours too! Make this when you are craving something sweet or you are expecting some company. It is the best for any occasion and anytime of the week.
One last tip before you go and are on your way to making the best thing ever: make sure to let the loaf completely cool before removing it from the pan. Patrice is a virtue and as much as you want to get this baby out of the pan and devour every last bite, cooling is crucial. It will take about a good 20-40 minutes for it to cool before you can remove it from the pan and ice it. So, do yourself a solid and wait it out because the reward will be worth it in the end.
