This low carb almond poppyseed loaf is just what you need to satisfy your craving for something baked while still staying low carb.
Almond poppyseed loaf is one of my favorite things to eat. I used to get it from our local bakery when my grandma took me as a child. To this day, I love anything almond flavored! This recipe could easily be adapted to a lemon or orange poppyseed loaf. Orange would be great. I’m not a superfan of anything lemon flavored.

For this recipe, I used both the regular granulated Swerve in the loaf and powdered Swerve for the drizzle (you can get them as a bundle on Amazon!) I really haven’t played with any other low carb sweetener yet. But I have been thinking about it. Tell me in the comments, what you use for a sweetener!
A word of warning though. Each piece has about 8 net carbs, so it would be pretty easy to go over your daily carb allotment. Plus, this low carb almond poppyseed loaf tastes amazing and is… dare I say it…really moist! I love poppyseed!
Keep an eye on the amount of carbs in the protein powder. I love this Isopure Zero Carb in Creamy Vanilla.
