Greek Yogurt Cinnamon Raisin Bread and a GIVEAWAY!

Are you excited? I’m excited.

Today I have a delicious and guilt-free snack recipe to share with you. But that’s not all. You just wait…

This super moist and dense bread is make with Chobani’s Non-Fat Vanilla Greek Yogurt. I have always been a yogurt lover, but baking with it is a newfound love.

I previously made Blueberry Yogurt Cake Doughnuts, but those are longggg gone. I was ready for more. 

With my fresh supply of yogurt from my lovely friends at Chobani, I am exploring all of its possibilities. The great part about it is that the wide variety of yogurt flavors make recipe adaptations easy-peasy. 

A slice of this bread weighs in at just about 120 calories. All the more reason to spread on some butter while it’s warm and let it melt right into the bread.
Don’t mind if I do!
If are looking for the instant gratification of enjoying a cup of thick and creamy yogurt the traditional way (with a spoon), you are sure to never get bored either. Blueberry, Strawberry Banana, Pomegranate, Black Cherry, Apple Cinnamon…I think my favorite so far is probably Strawberry Banana. Mmmm.

Now for the reason you really should be excited today. I have teamed up with Chobani to give one of you lucky readers o’ mine your own assorted case (12-pack) of greek yogurt! 

You will receive one entry for doing each of the following:

-Visit Chobani’s “Chobaniac Creations” Pinterest board and tell me which recipe you would make first

Giveaway ends Sunday, July 1st at 11:59pm EST. Winner announced on this blog Tuesday, July 3rd. 

Greek Yogurt Cinnamon Raisin Bread
(Adapted from No Sugar Sweet Life)
Makes 10-12 small servings
1 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
3 tablespoons cake flour
1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 container (6 ounces) Chobani Vanilla Yogurt
1/2 cup milk (I used almond milk)
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray medium sized bread pan with cooking spray and set aside. 
2. In a medium bowl, combine flours, baking powder, salt and cinnamon. 
3. In a separate bowl, whisk together brown sugar, yogurt and milk. Add to dry ingredients and whisk until just combined.
4. Pour the batter into the bread pan and gently shake to flatten out evenly. 
5. Bake 40-45 minutes or until bread begins to pull away from the sides and toothpick inserted in middle comes out clean.
6. Let cool about 5-10 minutes on cooling rack before slicing.

Oat and Berry Yogurt Parfait

Goooooood morning! Do you like breakfast? I love breakfast. Not only BFD, but early morning breakfast too. I usually alternate between oatmeal and cereal with almond milk (Kashi Go Lean Crunch is my fave), and then an apple or banana mixed in or on the side.

For the last several weeks I have been on a yogurt parfait kick. I think it started at the blogger meet-up breakfast a while back, when I got the Blueberry Breakfast Parfait. I have always liked yogurt, but had forgotten how versatile it can be. There are so many different combinations of toppings and mix-ins to make a simple bowl of yogurt more interesting.

This is more of a non-recipe recipe…it’s nothing that requires baking, cooking, mixing, or even preparing in advance. Just pour a little yogurt in the bowl and top with the rest.

I enjoyed this particular combination so much I just wanted to share. Don’t mind me while I lick my bowl clean.

What goes into your favorite yogurt parfait?
