Cranberry Orange Bread

Recipes

December 22, 2021

This cranberry orange bread is a great addition to your holiday baking list. It is fresh, sweet, and beautiful! The cranberries give the bread a nice tart flavor, while the oranges provide a hint of sweetness. Not to mention, it is one of the prettiest holiday baking creations!

Cranberry Orange Bread

This bread would make the perfect homemade Christmas gift for a friend, neighbor, or coworker! The cranberries give it the most festive color!

What makes this cranberry orange bread healthy?

  • Baking bread and other holiday treats can be a great way to practice a few of the “healthy swaps” that I preach about. One easy way to make any baked good a little healthier is to swap vegetable or canola oil for coconut oil! Not only does it give it a better flavor, but it is a real food. Canola oil and other hydrogenated oils are highly toxic. Make the switch today!
  • This recipe only calls for 1/2 cup of granulated sugar. Most breads or baked goods call for double, triple, or even quadruple that! And here is a little baking secret… you don’t need it! Fruit contains natural sugars, which work to sweeten the bread. You can use white sugar or coconut sugar in this recipe.
  • I made my own buttermilk for this recipe. It is extremely easy and quick to make. I tested this recipe with almond milk. Let me know if you use anything different!

About the Icing:

This icing is extremely simple and gives this cranberry orange bread an even greater taste of orange. Feel free to use whatever icing you want for this bread. Just make sure that it has a thinner consistency!

Other Christmas Treats:

Stay tuned for much more this month!
