Getting tired of your everyday breakfast routine of boring, plain toast? Yeah, me too. Zest up your breakfast by making a loaf of lemon poppy seed bread! Cut a slice or two and eat it cold, warm it up in the microwave or toast it up in the toaster. Take it on the go, pair it with a nice cup of green tea, or my favorite way, slab on a scoop of vanilla ice cream for dessert. This bread is yummy and refreshing and not to mention, gluten free!

I combined two recipes, one from Buzzfeed and one from
