Helpful Hints:  I have heard tell that Chocoperfection chocolate chips are very good, however, also very expensive.  Hershey’s makes sugar free chocolate chips, however, they contain maltitol.  Lindt 70% bars, cut up, would do in a pinch, but one would need to increase the sweetener in the recipe by a tablespoon or two.  These are thin bars, so if you’d like them thicker, spread the batter in 3 mini loaf pans.
Gluten-free option:  I have made these with my newest gluten-free bake mix as well; however, it is not ready for publication until next year sometime.  I added 2 tbsp (25 mL) cream to the recipe.  You could use 14 tbsp of my current Gluten-free Bake mix (the one with coconut flour in it) and a little extra cream, if necessary.  The batter is fairly thick anyway.
