  • 1 1/4 cups whole grain pastry flour
  • 1/2 cup turbinado sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • 1/2 cup plain Dannon Oikos Greek nonfat yogurt
  • 1/4 cups steeped green tea, cooled to room temperature
  • 1/4 cups safflower or canola oil
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract


  1. 3/4 cups chopped walnuts
  2. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Coat an 8 x 4-inch loaf pan with canola oil cooking spray.
  3. Combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cloves, and cinnamon in a large bowl.
  4. Whisk the egg whites, plain Dannon Oikos Greek nonfat yogurt, green tea, oil, and vanilla extract in a small bowl until just combined.
  5. Make a well in the center of the flour mixture and add the egg white mixture. Mix until well combined, then evenly fold in the walnuts.
