I also found this recipe out of the New AHA Cookbook. My husband had a stroke and we had to drastically alter his diet. It has been a challenge to find recipes he actually likes. This one is a keeper. They are moist and flavorful. I also sneak in chocolate chips! Our son says he actually prefers this healthy recipe.
