Choco Cranberry Oat Bread with Yogurt Glaze | Pink Wings

Everyone who knows me knows that I am a sugar freak. I was that one kid at Halloween who scarfed all their candy within 2 days. I thought all kids were supposed to be like that, but my sister would hoard hers in her bottom drawer for months and I was always tempted to steal it. Anyone else like that? 

Well, fortunately I have also always loved to work out and keep fit, so over time I've learned to make healthy substitutions and better choices where I can. In this recipe I subbed in some Greek yogurt, and at Walmart found these DOVE® Fruit Cranberries that are made with real fruit and covered in dark chocolate. You can use the blueberry and cherry variations as well, those are yum-o. These are a good snack option for when I get my daily chocolate craving, but they are also deeeeelish in this bread. I made two mini loaves and didn't think we'd be able to finish them but hubby ate a whole one, and I ate the other whole one, whoops! Too good.

Choco Cranberry Oat Bread with Yogurt Glaze
Makes 2 mini loaves, or double to make one full loaf

  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup oats
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 3/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • pinch salt
  • 1 cup non-fat plain Greek yogurt, divided
  • 1/4 cup oil
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 6 Tbsp granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup Dove® Fruit Cranberries
  • 1/4 cup powdered sugar


Directions:

Preheat oven to 350F. Grease bread pans.

In a small bowl, combine the flour, oats, cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.

In a large mixing bowl, whisk together 3/4 cup Greek yogurt, oil, egg, vanilla and sugar. Fold in the dry ingredients, then add the Dove Fruits. Pour batter into your bread pans and bake for 35-40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Let cool completely.

Make the glaze by placing the powdered sugar into a small bowl. With your remaining Greek yogurt, add a bit at a time to the powdered sugar, stirring, until it reaches a thick but spreadable consistency. Pour it into a small ziploc bag, snip off a tiny corner of the bag, and drizzle over your cooled bread loaves.

    1. They're really yummy, definitely get the coupon and try them~ I don't know if you're ever eaten those Brookside ones but I got sick of those real fast. These Dove ones have better chocolate in my humble opinion.
