Sweeteners & Sugar: I like this bread to be on the less sweet side, if you like really sweet bread then use 3/4 cup maple syrup. You also can use coconut sugar or another sugar in the place of the maple syrup.  If you want to use all oat flour and no tapioca flour, I have tried it and it is not quite as moist and fluffy, if you choose to, use 3 1/2 cups oat flour and add 1/2 cup extra orange juice.
