Vegan Cranberry Orange Quick Bread! It’s easy to make and even easier to eat!
Our quick bread with fresh chopped cranberries and orange is a one bowl wonder. It’s so easy to make, and you’re going to love it, because there’s so much to love.
Let’s break it down.
It’s oil and butter free. Most quick bread recipes have one or both of those ingredients and ours doesn’t. We use one ripe banana to replace the oil. Did you know that you can use a banana or apple sauce as an oil replacer? You can, and it works.
It’s refined sugar-free. We used pure maple syrup to sweeten this pretty loaf.
It’s gluten-free. We used oat flour, all purpose gluten-free flour, and whole rolled oats in place of white or whole wheat flour.
It’s made with whole plant based food. Whole oats, fresh cranberries, orange zest and juice from a real orange, and spices is all you’ll find in our cranberry quick bread, and it’s delicious.
The texture is exactly what you’d expect to find in a breakfast bread. It’s firm and has the perfect crumb. It’s not dry, it’s not wet, it’s just right.
So how does it taste?
It’s SO GOOD! How could it not be? It has the tanginess and pop of cranberries, the sweetness of fresh orange juice, the slightly bitter zing of orange zest, warm and savory ginger and cinnamon, and that cranberry sauce topping is to die for.
You could skip the sauce, but don’t. It’s super easy to make and it’s the crowning jewel of the bread. Make it in five minutes while the bread is baking and then let it cool and thicken. Spoon it over the entire loaf, or put it in a bowl and spoon it over individual slices. It takes the bread to another level.
HOW TO MAKE GLUTEN-FREE QUICK BREAD WITH CRANBERRIES AND ORANGE
First – Mix all of the dry ingredients together in a large mixing bowl.
Second – Add the wet ingredients and stir until completely combined.
Third – Fold in the cranberries.
Fourth – Bake the cranberry orange quick bread for an hour, or until a wooden toothpick comes out clean when inserted in the center of the bread.
Fifth – While the bread is baking, make the cranberry sauce.
Five easy steps, that’s all it takes to make this healthy cranberry quick bread.
