I discovered in the middle of making this that the pecans I was going to use were missing. I substituted 1/2 cup on chocolate chips. First batch was too moist; I added 1/4 cup almond flour to the second batch and it was wonderful!

Made this yesterday and I am thrilled with the results! A quick bread that is moist and flavorful, and no one can tell it is gluten free. I never thought I would say that about any GF recipe. My loaf even looked exactly like the one pictured with the recipe. This is a keeper!

I made this for a friend that is also dairy intolerant milk for rice milk and the butter for shortening. She thinks it is the greatest and requests it often.

This had become another family favorite. Moist, tasty and no one knows it is gluten free.
