    Absolutely scrumptious! I can’t stop eating it! I substituted 1/4 cup of coconut flour with ground flax seed for extra fiber, and substituted half the butter with coconut oil. I also added cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg for added flavor. Yummy! It’s delicious by itself; and the consistency was perfect! So bouncy – like store bought bread! Love this recipe! Thank you!
