Roasted Strawberry Coconut Yogurt Bread

AS AN AMAZON ASSOCIATE I EARN FROM QUALIFYING PURCHASES

This roasted strawberry coconut yogurt bread is moist, perfectly sweet from the juicy strawberries and healthy to boot!

I’m kinda scared of Valentine’s Day these days.

What it used to be: a cute day where as kids, we stuck paper notes in each other’s little “mailbox” in school, an omg, what kind of cheesy heart shaped box of candy/stuffed animal/jewelery did he get me as teenagers, and then in the adult years pre-social media onslaught, a quiet night in and a good excuse to drink, eat something expensive and um…whatever comes after that.

Roasted Strawberry Bread

What it is today in the world of Pinterest: a sickly explosion of red, pink, sprinkles and over the top food crafts with far too much red dye involved.

I will never understand red velvet.

It’s vanilla, with red food coloring.

Tell me again why the world goes crazy for it?

Strawberry Coconut Bread

I hate the color pink. Red isn’t too far behind either. Pinterest right now makes me want to throw up.

So you won’t be catching any cutesy heart shaped red velvet cookies dipped in pink sprinkles on here in the next 9 days.

Strawberry Yogurt Bread

Roasted strawberries are about as Valentines-y as I get (here’s a roasted strawberry salad recipe if you’d rather the savory approach) over here.

And personally, I think they taste a hell of a lot better than red velvet.

Particularly, with coconut in a healthy-as-can-be-but-you’d-never-know-it yogurt bread.

I made this and subbed the greek yogurt with So Delicious' Strawberry Banana coconut yogurt (to make it dairy-free), then reduced the maple syrup to 1 T...and it is SO GOOD! Thank you for the recipe :)

Hi! This sounds delicious - I only have nonfat Greek yogurt at the moment. Would that still work in this recipe? Thanks!

I'm sure it would, just might not be as moist without the fat content in the yogurt.
