A subtly sweet, tender, moist Gluten-Free Lemon Poppy Seed Bread made with protein and fiber-rich chickpea flour.
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!
This gluten-free loaf has all of the fiber and protein-rich properties of chickpea flour in one lusciously tender and moist, perfectly (not too) sweet lemon poppy seed bread that also slices and holds together like a dream, stores well (if it lasts that long!), and is oh so DELICIOUS!

Tips for Making Gluten-Free Lemon Poppy Seed Bread
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.
