Pumpkin Flaxseed Bread Made with Coconut Oil

March 27, 2012

Author Notes: My dad hates flaxseed, so I've taken to sneaking it into his food. You can never go wrong with extra fiber, omega-3s, or shiny hair! Butter/vegetable oil was replaced with coconut oil, an amazing, underappreciated ingredient that can help control cholesterol levels, high blood pressure and blood sugar; improves digestion; fights bacteria and infection; and promotes weight loss. alyson mance
