Looking for a way to incorporate more protein into your diet? This high-protein Greek yoghurt bread is the answer to your prayers! Made with Fage 0% Greek Yoghurt, whole-grain flours, and seeds, this bread is not only nutritious but also absolutely delicious. It’s perfect for anyone who wants a healthy option for breakfast or a satisfying snack.



  • 250g Whole-grain flour
  • 5g Baking soda 
  • 2g Salt 
  • 200g Fage 0% greek yoghurt
  • 2 medium eggs 
  • 15g Honey
  • 50g Mixed seeds (pumpkin, sunflower, flaxseed)


  1. Preheat the Oven: Begin by preheating your oven to 180°C (350°F). Prepare a loaf pan by greasing it or lining it with parchment paper.

  2. Dry Ingredients: In a large mixing bowl, sift together 250g of whole-grain flour, 5g of baking soda, and 2g of salt.

  3. Wet Ingredients: In a separate bowl, combine 200g of Fage 0% Greek Yoghurt, 2 medium eggs, and 15g of honey. Whisk until you achieve a smooth mixture.

  4. Combine: Gently fold the wet ingredients into the dry mixture, stirring only until combined to avoid overmixing.

  5. Add Seeds: Incorporate 50g of mixed seeds into the dough. If you’re using optional add-ins like 30g of raisins or dried cranberries, add them now.

  6. Pour into Pan: Transfer the batter into your prepared loaf pan and smooth out the top with a spatula.

  7. Bake: Insert the pan into the oven and bake for approximately 45-50 minutes. To test for doneness, insert a toothpick into the centre; if it comes out clean, the bread is ready.

  8. Cool: Allow the bread to cool in the pan for about 10 minutes before transferring it to a wire rack to cool completely.

  9. Slice and Serve: Once fully cooled, slice your high-protein Greek yoghurt bread and enjoy it however you like—on its own, toasted, or topped with your favourite spread.

Flavour Variations

Herbs & Spices: Add a teaspoon of dried herbs like rosemary or thyme to the dough for an aromatic twist.

Garlic and Cheese: Incorporate minced garlic and grated cheese like Parmesan or Cheddar for a savoury kick.

Sweet Twist: Add a sprinkle of cinnamon or nutmeg along with raisins or dried blueberries for a slightly sweet, spiced loaf.

Nutritional Boosters

Protein Powder: Add a scoop of unflavoured or vanilla protein powder to the dry ingredients to boost the protein content even more.

Nut Butters: Mix in a couple of tablespoons of almond or peanut butter for added healthy fats and richness.

Fruit Puree: Replace honey with apple sauce or mashed banana for additional fibre and a naturally sweet touch.

Gluten-Free & Vegan Options

Gluten-Free: Use a gluten-free flour blend and ensure your oats and other additions are certified gluten-free if you’re catering to that dietary requirement.

Vegan: Swap the eggs for flaxseed or chia seed ‘eggs’ and use a plant-based yoghurt to make the recipe vegan-friendly.

Meal-Prep & Storage

Mini Loaves: Divide the batter into mini loaf pans or muffin tins for individual servings that are easy to freeze and defrost.

Sliced and Frozen: Slice the cooled loaf and store slices in the freezer. Toast straight from the freezer when needed.

Serving Suggestions

Breakfast Toast: Top a slice with smashed avocado, a sprinkle of sea salt, and a poached egg for a fulfilling breakfast.

Dessert: Slather a slice with almond butter and a drizzle of honey for a quick and healthy dessert.

Sandwiches: Use it as a base for high-protein sandwiches filled with grilled chicken, vegetables, and a light dressing.

Expanding your recipe in these ways can not only make it more interesting but also adapt it to suit various nutritional needs and taste preferences. Feel free to try these additions and let your creativity shine!
