  7. Line a muffin pan or lightly grease a mini loaf pan with coconut oil.
  8. Pour the batter into the pan and bake for 5 minutes. 
  9. Without opening the oven turn down the temperature to 350 degrees and continue baking for an additional 15 minutes. 
  10. Remove the muffins/ mini loaves from the oven and allow to cool for 5 minutes. 
  11. Take them out of the pan and continue to cool on a wire rack. 
  12. Enjoy! 


For baking in both a mini loaf pan and a muffin pan bake at 425 degrees for 5 minutes. Then turn down the oven to 350 degrees and continue baking for an additional 15 minutes.

For a standard loaf pan bake at 425 degrees for 10 minutes. Then, without opening the oven, turn the oven to 350 degrees and continue to bake for an additional 30 minutes.

You can substitute almond butter for peanut butter, tahini, or leave it out and replace it with vegan butter.
