Why Make This Gluten Free Raspberry Chocolate Yogurt Loaf

It’s simple to make and only needs 6 normal store cupboard ingredients. I used a gluten free self raising flour mix that already contains xanthan gum for this recipe. I find it easier to use a store bought gluten free flour blend. As you need a few different types of flours to make up for not using a flour that contains gluten.

Why Make a Healthier Version

Before we get started on how this yogurt loaf is healthier. I just want to say am all about indulging in some sweet treats and desserts. You shouldn’t deprive your self of anything that brings you joy. I make healthier lower sugar recipes because my stomach doesn’t agreed with having large quantities of sugar. I don’t want to miss out on eating cake, so I create desserts I can still eat and enjoy.

Healthier Than Your Average Yogurt Loaf

While this gluten free yogurt loaf is lower in sugar and dairy free it still taste amazing and you won’t feel like your missing out. With no butter or oil needed, thanks to the yogurt. I used a plain soy based yogurt from Asda by the brand Alpro. When using yogurt as a replacement for butter or oil you only need ¾ the amount since it will produces a more moist cake.

Fresh or Frozen Raspberries?

For me I used frozen raspberries. Simply defrost and slice them in half before adding them to the batter. I find frozen fruit in general to be more cost effective. Since it’s fresh fruit is not something I buy every week it makes more sense to buy the frozen kind. This way I don’t have to worry about it going off before I use it. In the winter months it’s much cheaper the frozen kind and means you can still make yummy treats all year round.
