I came across a delicious recipe for strawberry bread and thought this would make a great Valentine’s Day breakfast addition or deliciousness in the school lunchbox. I’ve revamped the recipe quite a bit to try and make this as healthy as possible.

The bread isn’t very sweet so sandwiching two slices together with a little extra homemade strawberry jam or  store bought organic strawberry jam won’t hurt!

And I made my bread in a Bundt pan to make the slices not as overwhelming for my kids to finish when they take the same to school.

Here, give my Strawberry Pecan Bread recipe a try…
