By "wheat flour" do you mean whole wheat or just regulat flour?
# Posted By Lisa | 5/20/11 3:55 PM
Lisa: It can be either or. I think I used around half white whole wheat pastry flour and half organic unbleached all purpose flour here.

It's a VERY delicious bread! It bakes up with a nice outer crust and a soft, fluffy, creamy inside. Hope you enjoy it!

could I use coconut flour instead of whole wheat flour?
# Posted By Caroline | 5/21/11 11:59 AM
Caroline: No. Coconut flour and wheat flour are not interchangeable.

I saw these, and had to try them! I did make a gluten free version. For the 3 cups of flour, I used
1 cup brown rice flour
1/2 cup white rice flour
1/2 cup coconut flour
1/2 cup sorghum flour
1/4 cup potato starch
1/4 cup tapioca flour
I also substitued 1/2 cup xylitol and 1/2 cup raw honey for half of the sugar. They came out great! Moist and fluffy, with a great flavor. Enjoy!
