Apple Oat Bran Bread

I felt like something sweet today so I decided to experiment with oat bran. Oat bran is the outermost layer of the oat kernel. Like oatmeal, it contains B vitamins and heart healthy soluble fiber. This bread is hearty and filling, due to the 9 grams of protein and 6 grams of fiber per slice. The secret to this recipe? Plain greek yogurt. Substituted for butter and oil, it adds calcium and protein and you can't even tell the difference. You can throw this together quickly and have breakfast for days. Drizzled with a bit of honey its tasty and filling.

Full recipe and photos after the jump.
