My favorite way to celebrate a new time of the year is focusing on in-season recipes. That means lots of squash, pumpkin, and cranberry posts coming soon.
Here’s a great way to start the day- whole wheat cranberry bread.
Cranberry Orange Bread
2 cups white wheat or whole wheat flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
1 cup chopped fresh cranberries
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup oil
1 tablespoon flax seed powder mixed with 3 tablespoons water
1 orange, zested and juiced
1/2 tablespoon vanilla extract
Mix together the flour, baking powder and salt. Add the cranberries, sugar and walnuts. Stir together. In a separate bowl combine the flaxseed mixture, oil, juice, and zest. Slowly add the liquids to the solids and stir to combine being careful not to over mix.
Pour the batter in a greased loaf pan for 50 minutes at 350 degrees.
Yummy with a bit of earth balance margarine, apple butter, or pumpkin butter.
