Wet Ingredients:
2 cups cooked organic white beans (I used navy beans)
6 large organic eggs
1/3 cup organic honey
2 tbsp melted ghee
1 tbsp lemon infused olive oil
2 tbsp melted coconut oil
1 tbsp lemon extract
Juice of ½ an organic lemon

Dry Ingredients:
1/3 cup coconut flour
¼ organic blonde cane sugar
1-1/2 tsp baking powder
¾ tsp baking soda
½ tsp sea salt

Additives:
2 tbsp organic poppy seeds
Finely grated zest from 2 organic lemons

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Grease an 8×8 coffee cake pan or a low 10 inch tube pan (this is what I used) with coconut oil and set aside.

First, blend all the wet ingredients in a vitamix or high powered blender. Next, add dry ingredients and blend. It gets very thick at this point so you might need to use a tamper or an immersion blender to blend completely. Then fold in poppy seeds and lemon zest and combine well.

Pour the batter into the prepared pan and distribute evenly. Bake for 35-40 minutes until golden brown and toothpick comes out clean.

Optional filling:
Mix in fresh blueberries

Optional Topping:
Create a glaze with 1/2 cup of confectioners sugar and 2-3 teaspoons of lemon juice and sprinkle coconut flakes or lemon zest on the top.
