Cranberry Holiday Bread with Spread

(Revised from my original recipe)

I can almost promise you that this will become a recipe you will love to give as gifts. It also goes great with coffee in the morning or with tea.  

( I chop my cranberries and nuts up in the Food Processor but you can leave them chunky if you choose)


2/3 cup chopped nuts (walnuts, pecans, almonds, whatever you like)
2/3 cup chopped cranberries (I like Cran-Cherries)
3/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
1/2 cup canola oil
1/2 cup dark brown sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoons baking soda
2 egg whites
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup almond flour
1/4 cup wheat bran
1/4 cup flax seed meal


Mix your ingredients together in a bowl.  Lightly spray a loaf pan with cooking spray.  Bake on 350 degrees for 50 minutes to an hour.

The Spread

1 small container low fat cream cheese
1/4 cup chopped nuts
1/4 cup chopped cranberries

Mix together until well blended


  1. This recipe sounds very healthy compared to many types of breads like this, and I am thankful to see you post this, yum!!

    1. Thanks Dawn, I hope you try it. If you do please let me know how you liked it.

  2. it does sounds healthier than most I've seen except for the canola oil. canola is a gmo & reputed to be bad for one's health. maybe choose a healthier oil? it sounds yummy tho!!!

    1. Thanks for stopping by Becky. Actually, canola oil is something my doctor said to use because of High Blood Pressure. However, today I use more Olive Oil than anything when I am cooking so Olive oil could be used instead. But besides that you can also increase the amount of Flax Seed Meal because that is often used instead of oil and butters in baking.
