Healthier Strawberry Bread

strawberry bread

I love, love, love strawberry recipes.  I know you are sick of seeing them probably, but I have one more not-to-miss recipe for your summer baking. I made this for ME. I like to bake only because I like to eat what I make.  Does that make sense? Thank goodness I am not a crazy baker, because I would be eating all the time – the crazy yumminess of sugary goodies after each meal of the day!

This is not a “healthy” recipe.  But it is healthier than the original recipe , which inspired me to redo it a bit.  I have loved-up my print-out of the recipe, so much so, that it is almost translucent, with notes written all over it, as I have made it for so many years.   I make this every year at strawberry season…and every year my husband asks me, “why?” Haha! He thinks I bake for him! That is funny! I bake for me… It just so happens that he likes most things I make! Silly family, Strawberry Bread is for Barrie…though now my boys love this as much as I do.

Healthier Strawberry Bread

Cook Time: 1 hour

Total Time: 1 hour, 15 minutes

Yield: 2 loaves

This is a nice recipe to bake one - take one. It makes 2 loaves and you will want to keep both, both it turns out so nicely that I often give one away!


  • 3 cups All-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1 cup sugar
  • Wet
  • 1/4 cup oil
  • 1/4 cup greek yogurt
  • 3/4 cup applesauce
  • 3 eggs, plus 1 egg-white beaten together
  • 2 cups sliced strawberries (fresh or frozen & thawed)


Spray 2, 9X5X3 loaf pans, and set aside.

In a medium bowl, mix the dry ingredients with a whisk.

In a separate, large bowl, mix the wet and then add to the dry.

Mix thoroughly until combined.

Divide batter, spooning half of the mixture into each pan.

Bake at 350* for 60 minutes or until a knife inserted in center, comes out clean.

Cool in pans flat for 2 minutes, and then on their sides for 2 minutes and then remove from the pan and cool on wire rack. Slice and enjoy!

If you don’t try making this, you are ridiculous.  Why?!

Because it is SO good! You will love this for breakfast with your coffee, or at night with your tea- any time is a good reason really~ Enjoy.
