Yummy!!!!....It is like a soft bread, like a pudding bread almost. I used a little less cocoa powder, ommited the chocolate chips...and also to give it a more pistachio flavor I used an instant pistachio pudding mix (but Royal). I don't really like the mix in itself so I decided to use it in a bread, I could taste the mix so maybe I should use a better pistachio mix next time. But quite delicious and not too sweet.<br/><br/>I also used brown sugar instead.<br/>I think next time i'll put even less cocoa powder because I wanted to bread to turn out green and have more of the pistachio flavor. Thanks for the recipe!
