GRAIN FREE LEMON OLIVE OIL LOAF WITH BLUEBERRY CINNAMON STREUSEL (COCONUT FLOUR & ALMOND FLOUR) this olive oil loaf is no ordinary loaf, it packs a punch with lemon flavour and it's topped with the most addictive and crumble-y blueberry-cinnamon streusel.

Hello, please meet the loaf of my motherfucking dreams. I apologize for starting this off on such a strong note, but it simply has to be said. 

I’ve been dreaming about making some sort of olive oil cake. It seems to have really just got super ~trendy~ too, but my olive oil cake experiments have been happening for over a year now!! After a bit of trial and error, and generally trying to figure out *what* exactly I wanted to make with extra virgin olive oil, I finally have something (amazing) to show for it!

This is the most lush yet light yet fluffy yet dense yet not too dense (don’t worry) lemon olive oil loaf WITH (I’m not done yet) a blueberry cinnamon streusel on top. It’s a mouthful, but also, it’s mouth happiness. Scroll on.

This loaf is made with both almond flour and coconut flour, to offer you the best of what both worlds have to offer, resulting in the perfect sort of cake-loaf consistency. It’s not exactly cake, certainly more loaf than cake, and possibly could even be compared to a coffee cake, if the coffee cake was wholly lemon and had streusel on top.

Beyond coconut flour and almond flour, you will need ample honey and the fanciest extra virgin olive oil you can find for flavour purposes. Finally, lemon (duh), eggs, and a couple of other basic ingredients round out the loaf.

Of course, you could make this loaf sans cinnamon blueberry streusel, but also like, WHY would you do that to yourself?! You need the real-deal. The streusel just completes this. It provides a bit of crisp to an otherwise soft loaf, and incidentally, a bit of spice thanks to the cinnamon. Also, the blueberry flavour compliments the whole thing. Sidenote, if you don’t have any blueberry jam, you can use fresh blueberries or frozen blueberries.

Without further adieu, please find the recipe and instructions below. As per usual, if you do try making this recipe, please tell me (or show me!). Drop me a comment below, or follow me slash DM me on Instagram @grainfreee.
