  1. I made this yesterday and it is heavenly. Not too sweet but rich and chocolatey. I think I want to marry it. How do you think it would work with a whole wheat flour?

    1. That’s fantastic Amy and thank you for your feedback! I am usually pretty successful with substituting the white flour for wheat flour, so my guess is that it will work just fine. Let me know if you end up making it again with wheat flour… big hugs 🙂

  2. I would like to make this but would like to use only one pan. What size loaf pan would you recommend?
    Thanks!

    1. I recommend that you use a 9×5 instead, it’s the perfect size. Let me know how your recipes comes out!

    1. Hi Deb, its definitely worth a try. Based in my experience coconut flour requires more liquid content, so you will need to adjust accordingly. Let me know how it comes out!
