Healthy Strawberry Bread

This is a great recipe when your garden is overflowing with strawberries, also, keep some chopped up and frozen for making this bread in the winter.  We usually eat this as a breakfast bread, but I have put it into a 13x9 inch pan and used this as a dessert recipe as well (same bake time and temperature). 

I have sent this to work with my husband with rave reviews from his co-workers.  I have made this for friends and family when company has come, it never fails to please.  Let me know what you think...and enjoy!!!
