Notes

You can also bake these into muffins, but may need to adjust baking time. I would check them at 20 minutes.

You can use different types of chocolate chips to make this bread your own. Add in a handfull of toasted pecans or walnuts for healthy fats.

I love adding 1/2 cup of coconut to this bread to make it extra special.
