This is a great breakfast bread recipe. I am always on the lookout for healthy bread and muffin recipes and I love that the oil is replaced by yogurt in this one. The finished bread is dense but not dry or too squishy. Sometimes low fat breads get “weepy” after a few days in the fridge. This one does not, but it also stays moist. It is so yummy toasted and spread with almond butter!

A couple of other notes: I have doubled the recipe and frozen the baked bread with no issues. It actually freezes and thaws quite nicely. I also have made a batch and substituted frozen raspberries for the raisins (yum!) and one batch with pears substituted for apples and walnuts for raisins. It seems to be a very versatile base recipe to work with on top of being fantastic as is.

Thanks for sharing, Jen!
