SIDE NOTES:

~ Adapted from Cooking w/ Coconut Flour.

~ 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.

For those with various food restrictions, this recipe falls into the following categories:

Dairy Free, Gluten Free, Egg Free, Nut Free, Sugar Free, Grain Free, Vegan, Raw

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

~ Freezes well (I freeze individual slices which are great to pull out as needed for a school snack).
