  • The oil is making it high in cals....maybe substitute with applesauce or banana. 3 T of chocolate chips also adds to the calories too so maybe 2 T instead - 4/25/18

  • make these changes: add 1/4 teaspoon of baking powder, a little cinnamon and vanilla. Also decrease the oil to 2 table spoons and also decrease the sweetner by one third. remember you can add banana or applesauce instead of oil. - 10/4/13

  • I needed some chocolate the other night and had nothing in the house but unsweetened cocoa powder. This worked great for my craving. The only thing I didn't add was the chocolate chips but it was still very yummy. Thanks. - 4/11/10
