This sugar-free lemon bread tastes great as a treat, but it’s also nutritious enough to serve for breakfast. If you enjoy making your breakfast in advance, this is a fantastic choice. The glaze is fantastic, though, so I really advise making it!

DUE TO THE BREAD
Eggs: provide the bread with structure and aid in rising. Make sure they are at room temperature.
For a paleo lemon loaf, you can also use coconut sugar, maple sugar, or granulated monk fruit as the sweetener.
Use refined coconut oil
You’ll need the juice of two sizable lemons.
About two lemons’ worth of lemon zest.
Baking soda: aids in bread rising.
Our preferred gluten- and grain-free flour for keto loaves is almond flour. Use superfine almond flour, not almond meal, for this recipe.
To complement and provide structure to the almond flour, use coconut flour.
Just a pinch of fine sea salt will counteract the sweetness.
The glaze is simple to prepare in about 5 minutes and just calls for 3 ingredients. When it sets, just whip it up while the bread cools, and it will be ready to serve.
IN AID OF THE LEMON GLAZE
A spreadable mixture formed by pounding coconut is called coconut butter (also known as coconut manna). We adore this company.
If you don’t have coconut butter, you may alternatively use a powdered sweetener of your choice and combine it with some unsweetened almond milk until it has the consistency of a thick glaze.
Maple syrup without sugar from Lakanto, or use your chosen liquid sweetener in its place.
Citrus juice and zest as a garnish
KETO LEMON LOAF RECIPE
Before you start, preheat the oven and prepare your baking pan by lining it with parchment paper or cooking spray. By doing this, you can be sure that when your bread comes out of the oven, it won’t stick to the pan. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
The wet components should be combined by beating the eggs and maple sugar in a medium- to large-sized mixing basin. After that is finished, stir in the coconut oil, lemon juice, and lemon zest to create a silky smooth consistency.
Incorporate the dry ingredients: Over your bowl, place a big mesh screen, and sift in the salt, baking powder, almond flour, and coconut flour. Stir the batter until it is thoroughly incorporated after all the dry ingredients have been sifted.
Before transferring it to the loaf pan, check to see whether there are any lumps.
Bake: The batter needs to bake for 36 to 43 minutes. When a toothpick placed into the centre of the batter comes out clean, the batter is done.
After that, the bread must cool for another 30 minutes to set.
The glaze only needs to be prepared by combining the coconut butter, maple syrup, and lemon juice.
Slice and serve Glaze the bread, then serve. Enjoy slices after cutting.
THE BEST LEMON LOAF GUIDE
Don’t add the glaze until the bread has cooled. In this manner, it will avoid soaking into the bread and remain on top of it.
Coconut oil can be substituted with ghee or ordinary butter if you don’t need the bread to be dairy-free. The bread will be tasty, soft, and moist in either case!
TIPS FOR STORAGE AND FREEZERS
How to store: To keep your lemon bread fresh, wrap it up tightly in plastic wrap. Wait until the glaze has completely hardened before doing this. It will last about five days this way, but you can extend its shelf life by storing it in the refrigerator.
How to freeze: You can freeze the loaf for three to four months if you want to save it for a later time.
