Halved the recipe. Used two eggs. Skipped the nuts, instead adding 1/2 cup white chocolate chips. Added 1/4 tsp. coconut extract. Tasted amazing and had the most delicious crust. I was expecting to have to add a glaze but this was plenty sweet and delicious without.
Wonderful! I have made this several times now and have a few loafs in the freezer. I have given 2 people the recipe already, everyone loves it! I did substitute 1/2 the oil with 1/2 applesauce and added some xtra vanilla. I peeled min on accident too, but now I do it everytime. Also the 3rd time I made this I tried it with 1/2 whole wheat flour sifted, 1/2 applesauce and with 3/4 c eggbeaters...it was still just as delicious! Thanks
I just made this bread with a few changes. I used 1/2 whole wheat flour, added 2 big scoops flax seed, used 3/4 cup honey and 3/4 cup dark brown sugar. Otherwise made the same. I will definitely be making this one again! It was delicious!
