    These were so easy to make (I substituted the yogurt with sour cream since I only had it available). My picky eater even loved these. I made them mini-sized for him. Thanks for the recipe!

      bad news – i tried this as a loaf last night, cooked it a little bit longer so it would cook all the way through – tried the toothpick test and it seemed good.. and the middle of the loaf collapsed overnight! apparently some other modifications needed to be made :/

      Hi Keri, This recipe would work in a loaf. The cooking time would increase to 50 min. – 1 hour. Hope this helps!

      You can definitely use vanilla greek yogurt, but I’m not sure on the gluten free flour. I’ve never tested this recipe using anything but all purpose.
