This is a delicious, light (not lite) recipe. It's sweet, but not heavy-tasting. Chocolate chips might be fun; I didn't add those to this batch. Instead of two regular sized loaves, I made one regular and three small loaves. I'll freeze at least two of the little ones for later. Use a good quality cocoa; it makes a difference.

Don't tell the Boyz; I added wheat germ and flax seed. This sweet treat actually has fiber. Shh.
