Coconut Flour Bread

I love baking with coconut flour and almond flour.  They have been my favorite since low carbing.  Coconut flour is cheaper then almond flour.  I found this recipe on-line when I first started low carbing.  Don't remember where I got it.  I have made it a few times and really enjoy it.  It is a quick bread, does not rise very high, but it is very good.  I enjoy it with different nut butters, jelly, or just plain butter.  Tonight I will be enjoying it with breakfast for dinner:)

Coconut Flour Bread
6 LG eggs
1/2 butter, unsalted, melted
2 Tbsp sweetener of choice(I used xylitol)
1/2 tsp sea salt
1 tsp baking powder
3/4 cup coconut flour

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  Grease bread pan with coconut oil or spray with olive oil.
Whisk all ingredients in medium size bowl until no more lumps.  Put batter in prepared pan and spread evenly.  Bake for 40 minutes.  Let cool in pan for 10 minutes and then remove and let cool completely on wire rack.  Slice and enjoy:)
