Notes
count as 1 carbohydrate choice If you would like to reduce the carbohydrate (sugar) content further, you can substitute 12 packets Stevia in place of ½ cup of sugar.
If you would prefer to, you can substitute honey or agave nectar in place of the sugar. Use 50% less honey or agave nectar than sugar in your recipe.

Cool down the bread completely and let sit on thecounter for 1-2 hours before slicing to prevent crumbling.
