The only question I have is..when I look at the calories for this recipes it shows a low 154.6, however when I look at the "servings per recipe" it states 25! That must mean a VERY SMALL portion is the serving size? Is this correct? If so, I would be careful in how big a piece I took. - 10/27/08

The recipe makes 5 mini-loaves and 1 serving is 1/5 of a mini-loaf, definitely enough for breakfast with coffee or tea.
This recipe was awesome. Quick, easy and healthy too. Low in calories & fat great with a cup of tea for breakfast or in the evening. I think I'll try using egg beaters - just because that's what I have on hand. Great idea making small portions - I can freeze the small loaves for later use. - 10/25/08
