To reduce the fat and calories in this made over recipe, eliminate an egg, used half the amount of oil and just a third of the nuts called for in the original recipe. The sugar is also reduced by nearly 1 cup by using a combination of white and brown sugar to retain the sweetness of the original bread.—Taste of Home Test Kitchen, Greendale, Wisconsin
