Tasty Breakfast Bread

There’s so much to love about breakfast breads. They’re easy to make, they’re hearty, they freeze well, and they’re a great way to start your day. Recently I got a hankering for some chocolate chip bread, but I wanted to give it a little more of a nutritional kick – a little something to offset all the chocolate chips I planned to throw into the batter. So I replaced some of the flour with quick oats, used egg substitutes instead of real eggs, and abandoned any oil or butter in favor of pureed prunes. The result was surprising moist, sweet, and quite hearty – just what I was after.

So here it is, my recipe for chocolate chip bread.

Cook Time

Prep time: 15 min
Cook time: 40 min
Ready in: 55 min
Yields: 8 slices

Ingredients for Chocolate Chip Bread

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup dry quick oats
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • Dash salt
  • 8-10 prunes, pureed
  • 3/4 cup fat free milk
  • 1/4 cup egg substitutes
  • 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips

Instructions

  1. Combine the flour, oats, brown sugar, baking soda, baking powder, and salt in a mixing bowl and stir.
  2. Puree the prunes in a blender (pulse it for just a few seconds).
  3. Add the pureed prunes, milk, and egg substitutes to the dry ingredients and stir just until moistened.
  4. Add the chocolate chips and stir the batter a few more times.
  5. Scrape the batter into a greased 9 in x 5 in loaf pan and bake at 350 degrees for about 40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean (you may see some melted chocolate on the toothpick and that's okay).
  6. Enjoy it hot or freeze it for another day!

Now that I am working 7:30 to 16:00 I need fast, practical and healthy breakfasts to take away like this one, which will make a great variation, yummy!!! Besides, I have a really sweet teeth and I have to keep it healthy to avoid the bad side effect everybody knows of, so thanks.
