Ingredients

  • 2 cups white whole wheat flour
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 2 Tbsp. poppy seed
  • 1/3 cup melted coconut oil + extra for greasing pan
  • 1/3 cup agave syrup or honey
  • 1 cup plain yogurt (not non-fat)
  • 2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup milk (I used 2%)
  • 3 Tbsp. lemon juice
  • 2 eggs
  • Glaze
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 - 2 Tbsp. lemon juice
  • 1/4 tsp. vanilla extract

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350°F (176°C). Use a paper towel to coat a loaf pan with coconut oil. Set pan aside.
  • Mix flour, baking soda, salt, and poppy seed together in a small bowl. Set aside.
  • Blend coconut oil, agave, yogurt, vanilla, and milk. Beat in lemon juice and eggs.
  • Stir dry ingredients into wet ingredients until combined. Do not overmix!
  • Pour batter into prepared pan and bake for 30 - 35 minutes until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  • Let cool in pan for 10 minutes before removing loaf from pan and cooling fully on a wire rack. You may need to slide a knife between the loaf and pan to loosen before removing.
  • Wait until loaf is fully cool to coat with glaze. Make glaze by whisking together powdered sugar, vanilla, and lemon juice. Add lemon juice a little at a time until the consistency is thick but easily pourable. Drizzle glaze over bread and let sit for 10 - 15 minutes before cutting to let glaze harden.
