Breakfast Bread

Low Calorie Recipe

A healthful breakfast bread packed with nutrients from ingredients such as whole grain wheat flour, oat bran, yogurt, honey and apple juice to get your day off to a great start. Spices of ginger and cinnamon give this bread a warm, comforting appeal.

Breakfast Bread


1-1/3 cups whole grain wheat flour
3 tablespoons oat bran
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1-1/8 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
3 tablespoons non-fat yogurt
1/2 cup apple juice
1-1/8 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon olive oil
1-1/2 tablespoons honey
2 egg whites
3 tablespoons grated carrots
1-1/2 tablespoons carob chips (Optional)

Recipe Directions

Preheat oven to 350-degrees.

Sift together the wheat flour, oat bran, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon and ginger. Set aside. (This can be done the night before and kept covered at room temperature.)

Mix the yogurt, apple juice, vanilla extract, oil, honey, egg whites and carrots in a separate bowl and blend together. Mix the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients. Add the carob chips and fold together until blended. Do not over-mix, this will toughen the bread.

Spray two small loaf pans with non-stick spray and fill each pan 3/4 full with batter. Place on the center rack of the preheated oven and bake 45 minutes. The breads are done when a toothpick inserted into the center of a loaf comes out dry. Cool on a rack for 15 minutes. Slice each loaf into ten slices.

Recipe makes 2 small loaves Breakfast Bread.
