  2. In a large bowl, mix together the flours, baking powder, baking soda, sugar, shredded coconut, ground cinnamon, and lemon zest.(5 minutes)
  3. In another bowl, mash the papaya with a fork until smooth.(2 minutes)
  4. Whisk in the Greek yogurt, egg, and coconut oil and then add the mixture to the dry ingredients. Add in the almonds.(5 minutes)
  5. Transfer to the baking pan and bake for about 45-50 minutes.(45 minutes)
