Yummy Cranberry Nut Bread Recipe

I just made some cranberry bread for the family today, and boy did it turn out yummy! Considering the season, now is the perfect time to try it out! Cranberries are on sale practically everywhere, so it is the most affordable time of year to make it. I got the recipe off of a bag of frozen Ocean Spray cranberries, and I tweaked it to make it a bit healthier, and to family size it.

Cranberry Nut Bread

4 cups whole wheat flour
1 cup sugar
1 cup honey
3 tsp baking powder
2 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
1 1/2 cups orange juice
4 tbsp oil
2 well beaten eggs
3 cups fresh or frozen cranberries
1 cup chopped nuts (I used almonds)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease two 9x5 inch loaf pans, or one 9x13 baking dish. Mix together flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and baking soda. Add orange juice and eggs, mix until well blended. Add cranberries and nuts and continue mixing until well combined. Spread into pan or pans, bake for approximately 1 hour, or until fork comes out clean. Serve warm, with butter if desired.
