“I got this recipe from Cooking Light, but modified it to suite my needs (and the family's). My requirements were for it be lower in fat, healthier. My family's requirements was that it had to have chocolate chips. So we compromised and I came up with this alternative. I always cook my loaves in smaller loaf pans as they cook better and they cut easier when they are frozen. Leftover batter can be put in muffin tins.”
