I love fast and delicious quick breads. See what I did there? Fast and quick. Both important.
I love the bread in the link above, but certain members of my family only eat baked goods with visible chunks of chocolate. If I use actual chocolate chunks, however, those get mined out, so I circumvent that problem with mini chocolate chips. This bread is delicious, but it's not super sweet and the maple and cornmeal are an awesome combo. It's also healthy enough to feed children for breakfast. (I had a pop tart for breakfast yesterday, so clearly it's healthy enough for me. At least it was an organic pop tart.)
