Preheat oven to 350°F and spray a 9x5-inch loaf pan with nonstick spray.
In a medium bowl, combine the 1 1/2 cups flour, baking powder, salt with a whisk. Set aside.
In another medium bowl, combine the yogurt, sugar, applesauce, eggs, zest and lemon juice. If you are adding vanilla extract, add it here.
Slowly mix the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients, until well combined.
In a small bowl, add the 1 tablespoon of flour and strawberries. Toss until well coated and then gently fold the strawberries into the batter. Don’t over mix.
Pour the batter into your prepared pan and bake for 40-45 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Rest the bread for 10 minutes and then remove from pan. Allow to cool on a cooling rack.
