Very tasty, I just changed out the applesauce for non-fat french vanilla yogurt, didn't really wants an apple taste with chocolate chip. I did end up cooking it for 20 minutes. Another sub is instead of 1 cup of flour I did 1/2 white flour and 1/2 whole wheat pastry flour. I'm surprised how well it turned out-hope these tips are helpful...enjoy!
