4 tablespoons unsalted, grass-fed butter, melted
1 teaspoon organic almond extract

Preheat the oven to 350°F. Grease a 9- by 5-inch loaf pan with the coconut oil. Cut a piece of parchment paper to fit in the bottom of the pan and lay the parchment in the pan.

Step 2:

In a bowl, combine the coconut flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, mace, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. 

Step 3:

In a large bowl, whisk the eggs until combined. Add the mashed sweet potatoes and the almond butter, melted butter, and almond extract and whisk gently until well combined. Add the coconut flour mixture and mix with a rubber spatula until evenly moistened. Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan and bake until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, 50 to 60 minutes.
