Ready In: 1 hour

Level: Easy


Prep: 5 minutes

Cook: 40 minutes

Yields: One Loaf

    Ingredients

  • nonstick cooking spray
  • 1½ c all-purpose flour
  • ¾ c granulated sugar
  • 1½ tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp fine sea salt
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 large eggs
  • ½ c coconut oil, melted
  • 1¼ c Stonyfield Organic Whole Milk Plain Greek Yogurt
  • 1 c raspberries
  • ½ tsp lemon zest
  • Coarse sugar, for sprinkling

directions

Step 1

Preheat the oven to 350ºF. Grease a 9 by 5-inch loaf pan.

Step 2

In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment, combine the flour, granulated sugar, baking powder, and salt. Mix well on low speed. Add the eggs and coconut oil and mix until just combined. Add the yogurt and mix until just combined. Add the raspberries and lemon zest. Gently mix just to distribute the raspberries. Don’t overmix—you don’t want to smash the raspberries too much (but a little smashing is okay).

Step 3

Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan, spreading it evenly with a spatula, and sprinkle the top with coarse sugar. Bake for 40 to 45 minutes, until golden brown and the center springs back when touched. Cover it with foil for the last 15 minutes of baking if the top is getting too brown. Store wrapped in foil at room temperature.

Stonyfield Organic Bio Digester

VALIDATED BY THE SCIENCE BASED TARGETS INITIATIVE, STONYFIELD ORGANIC ANNOUNCES GOAL OF 30 PERCENT REDUCTION IN CARBON EMISSIONS BY 2030

Commitment has the potential to prevent or remove more than 70,000 metric tons of carbon from the atmosphere per year, the equivalent of taking 14,000 cars off the road annually

Londonderry, NH, Aug 8 2019 – Stonyfield Organic, the country’s leading organic yogurt maker, today announced its science-based target to reduce its carbon output by a target of 30% by the year 20301. With approval by The Science Based Targets initiative (STBi), Stonyfield Organic’s target is aligned with the Paris Agreement’s broader goals to limit global warming to less than 2°C and cut global greenhouse gas emissions by 49%-72% from 2010 levels by 2050.  Stonyfield Organic is just one of 50 companies in North America with an approved STBi target; globally 232 companies have approved targets.

“We know there is great urgency to solve climate change,” said Lisa Drake, Director of Sustainability Innovation at Stonyfield Organic. “A healthy planet is one of Stonyfield’s guiding tenets, and we’re proud to be among the earliest corporations to take significant action toward driving down global greenhouse gas emissions.  As a member of the Ceres BICEP Network since 2009, Stonyfield is equally as committed to advocating for policies that will help the U.S. reduce emissions at the pace and scale necessary to tackle climate change.  We are hopeful that more North American companies will join us in making science-based targets a standard business practice to ensure the U.S. remains a global leader in reducing carbon emissions.”

SBTi is a collaboration between Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP), World Resources Institute (WRI), the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF), and the United Nations Global Compact (UNGC), and is one of the commitments of the We Mean Business Coalition.

“The latest science has made it clear that more needs to be done – and faster – in order to avoid the worst impacts of climate change and secure a thriving, sustainable economy. The next few years are critical, and companies like Stonyfield Organic have a vital role to play in helping achieve transformation at the pace and scale that is needed,” said Alberto Carrillo Pineda, Director, Science Based Targets and Renewable Energy at CDP, one of the Science Based Targets initiative partners.

This newly approved target extends Stonyfield Organic’s long history of action to reduce its footprint – from 20 years of offsetting the carbon impact of its facility energy use to using plant-based plastic, as well as a steadfast commitment to clean energy and climate advocacy.

Stonyfield recently announced its leadership role in developing OpenTEAM, a new technology platform to help farmers everywhere improve soil health and trap carbon from the atmosphere in the soil, which will play a critical role in helping the company achieve its 30 by 30 target carbon reduction. This comes at a time when the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, an international group of scientists convened by the United Nations, reports on the urgent need to prevent further degradation of land by humans, highlighting the vicious cycle of climate change and land degradation.

In addition to the agriculture sector, Stonyfield Organic’s carbon reduction efforts will also focus on the areas of energy, waste, packaging and logistics.

“Few companies have demonstrated as deep a commitment to environmental leadership as Stonyfield Organic,” notes Tim Greiner, Managing Director of Pure Strategies, a sustainability consultancy to leading businesses, including Stonyfield. “The company has accomplished many firsts – the first national organic yogurt brand, first U.S. manufacturer to offset 100% of facility energy GHG emissions, the first biopolymer yogurt packaging solution, and one of the first to estimate a dairy company’s full life cycle carbon footprint in the industry.  This new aggressive goal will require the company to work closely together with its dairy farmers and other business partners to not only drive carbon from its supply chain, but also find ways to draw down carbon and sequester it in the soil.”

“With 30 by 30 and OpenTEAM, we are accelerating our sustainability initiatives to do our part to close the gap created by the lack of leadership from the federal government on climate change,” said Stonyfield Organic co-founder and Chief Organic Optimist Gary Hirshberg. “Our commitment to reducing our company’s environmental impact here at Stonyfield Organic is embedded in our longstanding company mission: Healthy Food, Healthy People, and a Healthy Planet. We have proven that a healthy business can play a critical role in a healthy planet, and now we’re going further to help make an even bigger impact in the fight against climate change.”

1Stonyfield commits to reduce absolute Scope 1, 2 and 3 GHG emissions 30 % by 2030 from a 2017 base-year.
