Gorgeous pistachio poppyseed orange yogurt bread naturally sweetened with honey, fresh orange juice, and topped with a perfectly sweet orange glaze. A delicious, healthy yogurt bread for spring!
For the glaze: Mix together powdered sugar, orange juice and orange zest until smooth. You may need to add in more orange juice to thin out the glaze, but remember we want it to be a thicker glaze but still pourable. Pour or drizzle over the top of the loaf and spread towards the sides. Garnish with chopped pistachios. Cut into 12 slices.
To make into muffins: Divide batter between 12 greased muffin liners. Bake for 18-24 minutes or until tester comes out clean.
If you want the bread to be just slightly sweeter, I suggest using ½ cup honey instead of ⅓ cup, this is especially necessary if you aren’t using the glaze.
*Instead of whole wheat pastry flour, you can use 1 cup whole wheat flour and 1 cup all purpose flour.
To make dairy free: use a dairy free yogurt such as soy, coconut or almond instead.
If you are looking for a gluten free recipe, I would suggest my paleo orange loaf.
