Strawberry Yogurt Bread

Hi Everyone and Happy Monday!

Today I’m heading up to Lake Tahoe with the girls from work.  Every year our East Coast and West Coast office gets together and we harmonize all of our processes.  I look forward to this because I love the girls on the East Coast, there like family to me.

Over the weekend I made some goodies for my Husband so he wouldn’t go starving.  I wouldn’t want that to happen or even worse he might just eat hot dogs and his new favorite find, Trader Joe’s Carmalized Bacon Dip.  He eats the whole container in one sitting.  I don’t know how he does that?  So I made him his favorite M&M’s Chocolate Chip Cookies to for his lunches and I also made him some Strawberry Yogurt Bread for his breakfast.

This bread is amazing!  It’s so moist and full of fresh strawberries.  I just simple love it and I hope he will too!!  It’s perfect for the spring season.  I can see munching on this bread while having a cup of tea, while gossiping.

This bread is just exploding with strawberries.  Since the strawberries are so sweet, there wasn’t a need for a lot of sugar.  I only used a half a cup.  I love when I can make a healthy, low calorie treat that is guilt free.

I made three mini loaves, so it’s easier to freeze and he can just grab a loaf and take it to work.  He likes to share his baked goods with his friends.  You can certainly make one large loaf, but you know me, I like the mini’s!  🙂

The bread baking smelled amazing!  I have to say out of all my quick breads I have made this is probably pretty close to my favorite.  It’s light, moist, sweet and full if my favorite fruit.  I told you I would be posting a lot of strawberry recipes.  I hope you like strawberries.  if you don’t you could always sub a different fruit in this recipe.

  1. You’re such a good little wife – most women would just let their husbands fend for themselves. This bread is so pretty and delicious looking – it’s making my mouth water thinking about it!
    Have fun in Lake Tahoe!

    • Jennifer @ Peanut Butter and Peppers says:

      We have fend for yourself night so often, I figured I would give him some goodies, even if there healthy for him to munch on. Otherwise all he’ll eat is subway (not the good sandwiches) or Burger King! Thanks, so far were having fun in Tahoe!

  2. Have fun on your trip chica! you’re so sweet for thinking about your husband and his eating needs. that bread looks delicious! I love the strawberry infusion…can’t get enough of them!

    • Jennifer @ Peanut Butter and Peppers says:

      I love strawberries, I swear I eat so much of them, I’m surprised I don’t turn into one!

  3. Strawberries and yogurt in a bread? Yum yum

    • Jennifer @ Peanut Butter and Peppers says:

  4. This is SO my kind of breakfast bread! It looks so fluffy, moist and flavorful Jennifer! Great recipe.

  5. Glorious! I would love a slice. 🙂

  6. I really like your blog. Your story is so cute.. if I don’t cook for my husband, sometimes I don’t when we fight, he eats the most unhealthy foods from outside only to piss me off even more. You are such a sweet wife. I love the idea of this dessert and it’s nice to see a dessert without oil or butter. So this recipe made 3 mini loafs? or it can make 1 normal loaf? Also.. love the idea of the east and west coast folks meeting in Tahoe, what a cool idea.

    • Jennifer @ Peanut Butter and Peppers says:

      Hi, I made 3 mini loafs, but yes you could most definitely make one big loaf. I love that the west and east coast girls can get together. Were really lucky our compnay allows us to do this.

      Funny how men purposly will eat bad, just to anger us. Wait till you see tomorrows post, you’ll crack up! Well, at least I did. 🙂
