Vegan Lemon Poppy Seed Bread (High Protein, Dairy Free)

This vegan Lemon Poppy Seed Bread is high in plant protein and makes for a delicious and filling breakfast. Like taking a bite of summer!
The Lemon/Poppy Seed flavor combo is one of my absolute favorites!  I will pretty much eat anything that is lemon poppyseed flavored: muffins, breads, waffles, pancakes, etc.  This bread is the perfect breakfast that will keep me full until lunch.

This Vegan Lemon Poppyseed Bread Is:

  • Slightly sweet (but not TOO sweet)
  • Thick
  • Packed with plant protein
  • Filling
  • Great with morning tea or coffee
  • Paleo & Gluten Free options available (see below!)
I wanted to develop a high protein bread for breakfast that was a little bit sweet (but not TOO sweet for breakfast). A lot of the recipes I saw online had a glaze or frosting on top, but thats a little too much even for me in the morning.

Whats In This Vegan Lemon Poppy seed Bread?

  • Protein Powder: I used a plain pea protein that I got from Trader Joe’s but you can use any plain or vanilla protein powder you have on hand.
  • Lemon Juice and Zest: I used both in this recipe for that ultimate lemon flavor zing!
  • Coconut Flour: I was gifted a very large bag of this from Costco so I’ve been trying to find new ways to incorporate it into baked goods – it’s great!
  • All Purpose Flour: any brand you have works… if you are gluten free, use almond flour in place.
  • Greek Yogurt: I used a non-dairy vanilla Greek yogurt, but you can use any plain or vanilla you have on hand.
  • Flaxseeds: for that extra fiber!
  • Almond milk: plain unsweetened or vanilla unsweetened is best
  • Granualted Sugar: but you can substitute any sweeteer you would normally bake with!  I love using honey in my baked goods, because I’m a beekeeper, but swap in a natural sweetener if you’d like.
  • Vanilla Extract: because it makes anything come alive 🙂

I developed the below recipe with combination of coconut flour and all purpose, but if you only have all purpose flour, that will work just fine.
The bright and delicious flavor of this bread is like taking a bite of summer!

How Do I Make this Bread?

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit
  2. Line a bread pan with parchment paper and set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, mix the dry ingredients together: protein powder, coconut flour, bread flour, sugar, flaxseeds, and baking soda. Stir well to combine.
  4. Add in the wet ingredients: yogurt, almond milk, lemon zest and juice, lemon extract, vanilla extract, and poppyseeds.
  5. Place dough into the bread pan, and place in oven.  Bake for 60 minutes until a toothpick can be inserted into the middle and comes out clean.  Enjoy!

Dietary Modifications

  • To make this Gluten Free, you can substitute the all-purpose flour for a gluten free variety, or with almond flour.
  • To make Paleo or Refined Sugar Free, substitute out all purpose flour & the granulated sugar with your preferred sweetener
  • If you don’t have coconut flour on hand, use all purpose.
