I'm making some Coconut Flour Flax bread. Gluten/dairy free. I added a tablespoon of coconut sugar to this recipe:

1/2 cup coconut flour, sifted
1/2 cup flax seeds, ground [or chia seeds, unground]
1/2 teaspoon salt [or less]
1 teaspoon baking soda
5 eggs
1/4 cup coconut oil, melted
1/8 cup water (I subbed in unsweetened apple sauce in hopes it will be more moist)
1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar [or coconut water vinegar or lemon juice]

Preheat oven to 325F. Grease a small loaf pan (7 3/4" × 4 1/2" × 3" H).

Mix all the dry ingredients together.

Combine all the wet ingredients.

Add the dry ingredients to the wet and beat well. Batter will be thick.

Pour into loaf pan and bake for 40 minutes or until toothpick comes out

Cool completely before slicing.

Comment from Carrol: This recipe can also be made into herb dinner rolls by
adding a teaspoon each of chopped fresh thyme, sage, and rosemary. I then
use the rolls to make stuffing. Just cube, toast and use in your favorite
stuffing recipe.

I'm excited to have something to spread almond butter on besides fruit! Fingers crossed it turns out yummy.

Dinner will be stuffed peppers. I've got a pork/beef/veal ground mix. I'll use cauliflower as though it's rice. Thinking of kale as the side dish. Maybe kale and bacon. :)

Looks like I most likely won't make it to CF until Tues or Wed. We'll see.
