Optional Additions 
This recipe is totally capable of standing on its own, but can also dress up deliciously for any special occasion you can throw at it . Try these fun toppings!


Perfect for donuts!
¼ cup coarse maple sugar
1 Tbsp coconut cream
⅛ tsp vanilla

Glaze Instructions:  Powder sugar in a high speed blender until it's a fine powder. After powdering the volume will increase, but you want to use all of it. Mix in the coconut cream and vanilla. Pour over the loaf while still very warm and gently roll to coat well. Loaf will be tender, so try not to brush. You may lightly spread and let the heat of the loaf soften and absorb the glaze. As Loaf cools it will harden. 

Powder Sugar
Sprinkle Loaf, cupcakes, or donuts  with powdered sweetener before serving. I recommend Lakanto or Swerve for a zero glycemic and WHITE color, but you can use any form of powdered sugar whether it be cane sugar, maple sugar, coconut, etc.  To powder, simply place granular forms into a high speed blender for a few seconds until finely powdered.
