Chocolate-Strawberry Bread Mediterranean Style

READY IN: 1hr 15mins
Recipe by Trisha W

This bread also includes dates and pistachios, which is why I called it Mediterranean style. All the flavors are there and seem to compliment each other making a mild tasting bread.

I used splenda baking blend and baked in a 9 inch round pan. It was done in 35 min. It is a dry sort of bread not moist like usual fruit breads. I am not sure if it is because of the changes I made. But I will not be making this again.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Add 1/8 C of the sugar to the strawberries and let stand while combining other ingredients.
  2. Beat the remaining sugar, eggs, oil, and yogurt together.
  3. Stir in the pistachio nuts - I ground mine almost to a powder in the food processor.
  4. Sift together the flour, soda, salt and cinnamon and stir into the sugar mixture.
  5. Stir in the vanilla, dates and the standing strawberries with any juice.
  6. Lastly, stir in the melted chocolate.
  7. Pour the mixture into a loaf pan sprayed with non-stick spray.
