If bread is frozen leave the loaves on the counter to thaw. Lay thawed slices on a baking tray and bake at 325F until toasted and lighlty brown. Cut bread into small cubes and place in large bowl. Set aside.
Melt coconut oil in large frying pan over medium heat. Add celery and onions. Stir often, until soft, 8 to 10 minutes. Stir in garlic and sage. Cook for 2 minutes, then stir in parsley along with any additional add-ins.
Lightly pack stuffing in casserole dish and moisten with about 1/4 to 1/2 cup (60 to 125 mL) broth or water. Cover with foil and bake in 375 F (190 C) oven for 20 minutes. Uncover and continue baking until crispy on top, 10 more minutes.
