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

      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! πŸ™‚

    Has anyone tried this using flax eggs?

      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! πŸ™‚

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

      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…
