Note:

– Not a particularly sweet loaf and if transitioning to a low sugar or grain free lifestyle then this may be a little different to what you are use too. In saying that I’ve had great success with my taste-testers. Give it a go and keep in mind that it often takes a few weeks to adapt to new ingredients and textures.

-Make it more low-carb high-fat by adding butter from pasture raised animals or solid state cold-pressed coconut oil.

– Baking at this temperature keeps the nut oils from degrading.
