I came up with the idea for this lemon poppy seed bread a few summers ago and couldn’t stop cooking it again and again. It’s so fantastic that I had to share it again this season! It is incredibly moist—I promise—gluten-free, readily dairy-free, nutritious, and expertly organically sweetened with honey. All owing to a combination of oat flour and almond flour. I mean, it’s tender, fluffy, and oh-so-good when topped with additional honey or butter. utter perfection.
