Green St. Patrick's Day Bread


This might be made in a loaf pan, but it’s definitely dessert! My St. Patrick’s Day bread is sweet and moist with a delightful little crunch from the pistachios, and I can’t even describe how beautiful it is! When you slice this little love open, you’ll reveal the most beautiful green color! It’s a fabulously fun way to celebrate St. Patty’s Day! This sweet treat is perfect with a cold glass of milk.
