There’s something about lemons that make me long for summertime and sunshine! That’s probably why I decided to make a Raspberry Lemon Loaf at the end of February, as I’m clearly ready for winter to bid adieu! It’s been a cold, dreary season and after months of comfort foods (and pumpkin everything!), I start to crave lighter and fresher dishes. Raspberries and lemons just sounded perfect to me, so I got baking!

Raspberry Lemon Loaf

This version of a classic lemon loaf is perfect for a paleo or keto/low carb dessert, breakfast, or afternoon tea time. I love the vibrant red colour of the raspberries, but this recipe would also be delicious with blueberries, blackberries, or cranberries!

To keep it sugar-free and low carb, I used Erythritol, a natural sugar alcohol. It’s about 70% as sweet as sugar, but with no calories and a low-glycemic index. I like the Now Foods brand because it’s non-GMO! If you prefer to use maple syrup or honey, I would try half a cup.

Coconut flour and almond flour also keep this recipe completely grain-free and gluten-free. I found that sifting the flour into the wet ingredients help avoid clumps in your batter.

Make sure to let the Raspberry Lemon Loaf cool off completely before slicing it, otherwise, it will crumble and fall apart. If you have a cooling rack, I recommend using it. I found the loaf held up much better the next day after it had been in the fridge.

I hope this adds a dash of sunshine to your day! Enjoy!

  1. My son liked it and didn’t know it was Gluten Free. Next time I’ll probably do a glaze. I just sprinkled a little Swerve confectioner’s on it.
