Preparation time: 10 minutes

Cook time: 40 minutes

Yield: 12 servings

1/2 cup coconut flour

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon baking soda

6 eggs

1/2 cup coconut oil, melted

1/4 cup honey

1/2 tablespoon pure vanilla extract

Zest of 1 lime

2 tablespoons lime juice

1-1/2 tablespoons poppy seeds

1-1/4 cup fresh blueberries (or frozen, defrosted)

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

  2. In a small bowl, mix coconut flour, salt, and baking soda with a fork. Set aside.

  3. In a large bowl, whisk eggs, coconut oil, honey, vanilla, lime zest, and lime juice until smooth. Stir in the flour mixture, poppy seeds, and blueberries until just combined.

  4. Grease an 8-x-8-inch square pan with coconut oil, and then dust with coconut flour. Pour batter into pan and spread into corners with a rubber scraper. Bake until lightly golden and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, about 35 to 40 minutes.

  5. Cool the cake in the pan, and then cut into 12 squares. Store covered in the refrigerator or at room temperature.
