Make Simple, Quick, Diabetic Friendly Yogurt-Oat Breads in Your Air Fryer
These breads take minutes to mix up and air fry in about 30 minutes. The breads are high in protein thanks to Greek yogurt and low in refined sugar. With plenty of whole-grain oats, the breads also are loaded with "good for you" fiber. I like the breads because they taste good--moist, simple, and delicious. Cinnamon and walnuts flavor the breads, and a handful of dried cranberries add sweet-tart pops of taste. You can use plain yogurt or vanilla flavored (with or without sugar, your choice). Slices of the bread are great for breakfast or alongside a cup of tea or coffee. Enjoy!
Air Fryer Yogurt-Oat Breads -- Makes 2
2 cups of Greek yogurt, plain or vanilla (non fat is fine)
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon of vanilla (increase to 2 teaspoons of you're using plain yogurt)
3 cups of oats (I use old fashioned, but quick oats would work, too)
2 teaspoons of baking powder
1/2 teaspoon of baking soda
1/2 teaspoon of salt
2 teaspoons of cinnamon
1/4 cup of dried cranberries
1/2 cup of chopped walnuts plus extra to top the loaves
Spritz two 6-inch round cake pans with non-stick cooking spray and line the bottoms with baking parchment (you don't have to line the bottoms, but it makes getting the breads out easier). In a large bowl whisk together well the yogurt, eggs, and vanilla. Add to the bowl the oats, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon and mix them in until everything is thoroughly combined. Stir in the dried cranberries and 1/2 cup of walnuts. Divide the batter between the two prepared pans. Top the batter with walnut pieces, if you'd like, pressing the walnuts slightly into the batter. Air fry the breads at 320 degrees for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown and mostly firm to the touch. Let the breads cool in their pans for 5-10 minutes before removing them to cool completely.
