Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Spray a loaf pan with cooking spray.
Blend applesauce, Greek yogurt, and coconut oil together in a bowl using an electric mixer. Mix in sucralose-sugar blend until combined. Add egg whites and almond milk; blend until fluffy. Mix in butternut squash and almond extract. Add cocoa powder, salt, baking soda, and baking powder; mix to combine. Add oat flour slowly, mixing batter until no dry spots remain.

The best flavour of the flour can make a real deal to your bread. Different makers do vary. Extra-strong or Canadian flours, which are bet higher in gluten, may give you a best rise than standard dough flours – especially if you’re make wholemeal dough , which doesn’t always getting bigger as well as clear bread.
To make this in a breadmaker , add all the ingredients to your breadmaker and follow the manufacturer’s instructions.
A dough’s first rising can be done in the fridge 24 hours . This slows down the time it takes to rise to double its size, giving it a deeper flavour. It’s also a great limit , as you can start it yesterday , then finish it off the next day.
