Easy and Healthy Greek Yogurt Bread

greek yogurt bread

Luis has this affinity for buying way more yogurt than one should ever eat, which means he buys it, leaves it in my fridge, and then buys more…usually before I’ve even opened the last container.  I do appreciate having a never ending supply of yogurt, but I can´t keep up.  With an abundance of Greek yogurt, what’s a girl to do?

Make bread with it. 

Super easy, healthy, no-rise bread.  This recipe has just 5 ingredients, one of which is the yogurt, and another is the salt.  I told you, easy!  It has no oil and no sugar, so I think it deserves the “healthy” stamp, if I do say so myself.  It’s a soft bread, toasts nicely, makes a great breakfast bread or serve it on the side of a dinner soup or salad.

Enjoy!
