Add the beaten egg whites in 2 additions, carefully folding them in with the help of a spatula.

Yes. Allow the cake to cool completely then cut into squares. Wrap each square in plastic wrap then place them all in a zipper-seal freezer bag. Use within a month for the best taste and freshness.
You can easily substitute butter or the oil of your choice instead of using coconut oil. If you choose to use sugar or another powdered sweetener instead of the maple syrup, just use slightly less than ½ cup or it will be too sweet.
