Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (180 degrees C) and liberally spray a standard loaf pan with cooking spray.
Quinoa Flour (1 3/4 cups)
Granulated Sugar (1/2 cup)
Baking Powder (1 Tbsp)
Herbes de Provence (1 tsp)
Poppy Seeds (1 tsp)
Salt (1/4 tsp)
a large mixing bowl. Whisk all of that together to aerate the dry ingredients.
In another bowl combine the zest and juice of the
Almond Milk (1 cup)
Olive Oil (2 Tbsp)
Fresh Thyme Leaves (2 sprigs)
. Whisk those wet ingredients together until smooth. Pour the wet ingredients into the bowl of dry ingredients and whisk it all together into a smooth, thick batter.
Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan and smooth it out to be even on top. Sprinkle a generous amount of additional poppy seeds on top, then bake the loaf for around 50 minutes. Use a toothpick inserted in the very center to test whether it is baked through, it's the most reliable way. It should come out cleanly.
When it's done, let the bread cool in the loaf pan for 15-20 minutes, then turn it out onto a cutting board to finish cooling. Slice the bread and serve with a great cup of coffee or tea! It will also keep for a day or so sealed in a container.
