** You can try other fruits with this recipe. Get creative, mix in some nuts or mix in another fruit.
I can't find the correct amount of carbs for this recipe because I have adapted it so diabetics can have a slice of this tasty bread. Try not to eat more than one 1/2 inch slice at a time so as not to raise your blood sugar. One slice is a little less than 15g of carbs.
