~ Adapted from Cooking w/ Coconut Flour.
~ If you’re not interested in this reduced sugar version, simply omit the stevia and double the sugar. If eating gluten free, be sure to use an alcohol free version of liquid stevia. (Ditto for the vanilla – use alcohol free if avoiding gluten).
~ To combine the coconut flour & baking powder, I always just put both ingredients through the sifter together.
~ My loaves don’t always slip out of the pan. If this is the case, don’t force it out. Just place the whole thing – pan & all – on a wire cooling rack.

If eating gluten free, be careful choosing your vanilla. If avoiding nuts, omit the walnuts.
