This bread is SO GOOD! I must say that I was incredibly happy with how this creation turned out.

I adore chickpea flour (a.k.a garbanzo bean flour), and having used it for many savory applications, I was anxious to create a sweet baked good with it. And boy was I ever so please with the result!

Tips for Making Gluten-Free Lemon Poppy Seed Bread

  • You can use arrowroot starch, corn starch, potato starch or cassava flour in place of the tapioca, if need be.

  • The coconut sugar can be replaced with any granulated sweetener of your choosing.

  • For a sugar-free chickpea bread, I recommend this sugar-free sweetener.

  • The ground ginger can be omitted or replaced with cinnamon. I just find ginger to enhance the lemon in baking.

  • This loaf keeps well lightly covered at room temperature for 48 hours. Any longer, slice and store the slices in airtight containers in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.

    Hi there, I have just made this cake, with a couple of substitutes which haven’t caused any adverse results. I used olive oil instead of coconut oil, I added lemon zest and also instead of coconut sugar I used jaggery. It is a great recipe. Thanks

  2. Hi, Kristen,
    I’ve been wanting to bake this bread since I printed out the recipe four years ago, and finally: today is the day! I came back to your website to get any updates.
    What size loaf pan do you use for this recipe? I wonder if the commenter who said her loaf was short was using a bigger pan than your default. In my cupboard I have three different sizes that I might use.
    I’m also hoping to make it with flax eggs… and I thought I might try baking it in a different shaped pan altogether such as 9×12. I want to serve it for tea.
    When I was in India I loved all the foods they make with chickpea flour, and have been trying it in various recipes ever since. I’ll try to come back and tell you my results with whatever I do!

    1. Hi! Thank you so much for returning! I use an 8.5″ x 4.5″ loaf pan (and thank you for the reminder..I should add this in the post!). I do think the flax eggs will work well in this recipe. I so look forward to hearing how it goes for you! If you’ve yet to try it, this is another one of my favorite chickpea flour recipes: https://moonandspoonandyum.com/childa-recipe/. Thank you for stopping by!

    1. Hi Kenzie – To add yeast, warm the milk used in the recipe and mix in 1 tablespoon yeast and 1 tablespoon of the coconut sugar. Let it sit and get frothy about 5 minutes and then add it when you add the other wet ingredients to the dry. Then, just let it rise covered in a warm spot for one hour before baking. If you’re looking for a corn-free baking powder, this one works great: https://amzn.to/3b33flI I hope this helps! 🙂

  3. Hola!
    I might have missed it, but servings is 1 slice, of the entire loaf how many slices should I have?

    1. Hi Melissa – thank you for catching that! It looks like not all info imported into that recipe card. I’ve now updated it! You can get 10 slices from this loaf and the nutritional information is for 1 slice. I hope this helps. 🙂

    1. Hi! If you really would like to, you can. I usually add yeast to recipes for two reasons: for flavor or to rise the dough. With this particular recipe, I think you would be surprised how well it rises without the use of yeast, but adding yeast should not hurt anything, but it will alter the flavor a bit. If you want to add it for rising purposes, I find this particular flour blend usually take 1 1/2 hours on average to rise sufficiently. I hope this helps! 🙂

    I love this recipe! I came across it when I didn’t have the right ingredients for my go to bread. I was looking for savoury, so I left out the sugar and used hulled hemp and sunflower seeds instead and the result is a delicious, fluffy breakfast/sandwich soda bread. Reminds me of holidays in Ireland!

  5. Hi is there a way to make this a savoury bread? I’m looking for a chickpea flour bread recipe, thanks

    1. Hi Tayah – yes! Omit the coconut sugar, increase the tapioca to 1/2 cup, omit the ginger, replace the lemon with another 1/4 cup of milk and add 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar. I hope this helps! 🙂

    1. Hi Jan, while I haven’t tried it with this particular loaf, I have used flax eggs with this flour combo with great results and I do think it would work with this recipe. The texture would not be identical but it would still be quite similar and definitely still tasty. I would advise adding 2 tbs ground flaxseed + 6 tbs of warm water in place of the eggs. I hope this helps! 🙂

  6. Hi! For some reason mine does not rise like yours – it ends up being half the pan in height any advice?

    1. Hi Grace – Hmm, that is odd! The only thing that comes to mind is that maybe your baking soda and/or baking powder are not fresh enough. Those are the two ingredients when combined with the lemon juice produce a rise in this recipe…
