Thank You for sharing this! I made it this evening and it came out fantastic! I used margarine and apple juice combinations in the choices available here. The only additional thing I did was to sprinkle about 2 tsps. of light brown sugar over the bread mixture once it was put into the greased loaf pan. I'll definitely give it a try next time with coconut and half the sugar as you've suggested. THANKS again for sharing!

This was so good. I used orange juice so it gave the bread a citrus like taste. Not too sweet, definately an adult snack.
