We buy large containers of yogurt, but sometimes we don't get through them before expiration date. So, I make bread with the remaining two cups. The bread stores well in zipper lock bags for as long as ten days. Stores in fridge for up to two and half weeks. Freezes well and thaws on countertop within a few hours. Make round loaves or standard bread loaves. Use bread machine to knead and for first rise.

  • 2 cups room temperature plain yogurt2 (150 mg)
  • ½ cup expeller pressed Canola oil (trace)
  • 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar (1.49 mg)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract (.378 mg)
  • 2 teaspoons granulated Soy Lecithin (trace)
  • 5 cups white bread flour (12.5 mg)
  • 1 tablespoon powdered nonfat milk (40.1 mg)
  • 1/3 teaspoon ascorbic acid (or crushed vitamin C tablets) (trace)
  • 3 tablespoon vital wheat gluten (8.155 mg)
  • 2 tablespoons potato flour (11 mg)
  • 2 level tablespoons granulated Splenda (trace)
  • 6 teaspoons active dry bread yeast (10 mg)
  • Optional: 2 teaspoons of white granulated sugar (trace)3

Place ingredients into bread machine pan in order listed. Set for dough.

After dough cycle is finished, roll out onto lightly floured board and with a very sharp knife, slice into four sections.2

Place into parchment paper lined loaf pans, baste with light coat of nonfat milk, let rise in a warm place for about an hour.

Set rack to low middle area of oven(s). Set a small aluminum pan with a half inch to an inch of water into oven off to the side or at the back.

Preheat oven to 375o F. When ready, set two loaves on rack apart from each other and bake for about 15 to 25 minutes. If loaf sounds hollow when you snap it with your fingers, it's done. Remove and set onto rack to cool. Best not to slice the bread for the first fifteen to twenty minutes.

Repeat above baking for next loaf or loaves unless you have two ovens and are able to bake both set at the same time.


¹Very few yogurt products are "sugar" free. Many will list fructose or juice of cane, each of which is a sugar. However, we avoid those that use granulated sugar because the carbohydrates are too high for diabetics. Two you might find with low carbs per cup are Chobani and Dannon Greek.

²This recipe was created and tested using Straus Plain Greek Yogurt, which is more fluid than other Greek yogurt. It does not contain sugar or fructose. Straus is distributed natonally. Their Web site is:

³Sugar is a strong yeast activator. If you add the sugar, cut back the yeast to 4 teaspoons
