It is not possible to replace all purpose flour with the coconut kind, as both have different baking properties. If you have leftover coconut flour on hand, try some coconut flour recipes.
Adding Psyllium husk and baking powder to the batter will allow the bread to rise slightly. However, unlike a wheat-based bread, it won’t rise too much.
