Strawberry Yogurt Bread

I’m real quick getting ready in the morning. I’m talking like alarm goes off at 6:46 (random I know) and I’m out the door by 6:58. I am also one of those people that can’t really function without breakfast so I love having things I can grab and go.

I came across this recipe by Peanut butter and Peppers for Strawberry Yogurt Bread and thought it would be perfect for those grab and go breakfasts! It’s not a very sweet bread, which I like. It tastes great with a tablespoon of peanut butter or even almond butter! Here’s a copy of the recipe below:

I made this in one loaf instead of 3 minis and even though my cuteness factor was missing, it still came out great!
I love recipes with substitutions to make the nutritional content a bit better and yogurt is a great substitute for fat like oils and butter and still keeps the bread moist!
