Bread Mixes: Swap Yogurt for Oil?

Jim Leff | Dec 15, 2008 02:22 PM

I'm not into baking, so when the yearning strikes, I rely heavily on Trader Joe's instant bread mixes, like their swell new gingerbread mix (I also like banana and pumpkin).

My question is whether I can replace some of the oil with nonfat yogurt just to healthify a little. And whether to then adjust the water, as well.

Also, any suggestions for only slightly less quick/lazy ways of doing this sort of thing from scratch, allowing me to use whole grains and less sugar for even healthier results, without having to resort to sifting and other craziness? Never will I sift.
