Recipe: Guilt-Free Choco-Banana Bread

Guilt-Free Choco-Banana Bread

Forget about all the butter-packed, sugared-up, chocolate chip banana breads in the world and go for this guilt-free recipe. It uses smart swaps like fat-free liquid egg substitute and light butter to lower the fat count. Then it uses whole-wheat flour to boost the fiber.  Add the perfect balance of sweeteners, plenty of mini chocolate chips, lots of banana, and you’ve got one delicious, no-guilt treat.
