Healthy Pound Cake (GF, Vegan, Sugar-free)

Ingredients: 

1 3/4 c GF flour blend

2 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp baking soda

2.5 oz vegan cream cheese, softened

2.5 oz vegan butter, softened

1/2 c granulated monkfruit

5.3 oz plant-based yogurt, room temp

2 tsp vanilla extract

1/4 c non-dairy milk

Optional: 1 tsp lemon extract or 3-4 drops lemon vitality oil, blueberries

Method:

Sift the flour, baking powder and baking soda into a bowl and set aside.

Cream the cream cheese, butter, and monkfruit with an electric mixer until creamy and fluffy.

Add the yogurt and vanilla (and lemon extract/oil if using) and blend on medium speed until incorporated. 

Alternate adding the milk and flour a bit at a time, ending with the flour. 

If the batter gets very thick, stir any remaining flour in with a spatula.

Fold in the blueberries.

Transfer to a parchment lined loaf pan and bake at 350 degrees for 40-45 minutes, or until edges are golden and center is puffy/firm to touch.

Cool completely before glazing/slicing.
