This lovely lemon loaf recipe, sent in by Roshni, is made with flax egg – which is an egg substitute made from finely ground flax seeds and water – and is delightfully soft, zesty and not too sweet.
There’s the option to add chocolate chips or top with thinly sliced lemon instead (my personal favourite).

To make a flax egg the ratio is one tablespoon of finely ground flax seeds and three tablespoons of water. If you don’t have coconut sugar you can substitute 2/3 cup of regular sugar.
You can also replace the flour with a gluten free option or other flour of your choice and use other milk alternatives. If you don’t have flax seed you can use another egg substitute like Orgran Egg Replacer.
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 flax egg (the same as one egg)
1/2 cup coconut oil
Lemon juice & zest of one lemon
3/4 cup coconut sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
3/4 almond milk
Chocolate chips – as many as you like
Prepare the flax egg
In a bowl, mix the coconut oil and sugar
Add the flax egg, almond milk, lemon juice and zest
In another bowl sift the flour add the baking powder and salt
Add flour mixture to wet mixture and stir well, then pour into a greased loaf pan
Top with thinly sliced lemon or chocolate chips and bake for 40-45min at 180c.
