Cranberry Orange Yogurt Bread

We’ve found a new favorite quick bread recipe. I’ve made this cranberry orange yogurt bread couple of times now and really cannot get enough. It’s perfect for breakfast, afternoon snack and even dessert. Let’s talk about why this orange loaf is so great. Well, for one, it’s actually a pretty healthy bread. It’s only sweetened with a little bit of maple syrup, which makes this bread great for breakfast. Also, it is low-fat, I only used Greek yogurt and a touch of coconut oil. The nice subtle orange flavor from orange zest and cranberries compliments each other. It is also so easy to make and I love easy recipes that I can make on a weekend morning for breakfast. Enjoy!

  1. I love anything with cranberries in it. This cake looks divine. I made a wonderful chocolate chip and dried cranberry loaf cake the other day to take to Epsom Riding for the Disabled. It is a charity that provides therapeutic horse riding for disabled adults and children in the community. I am one of the volunteers and the cake went down a storm. I’ll have to make your cake for them next time. Have a great weekend. Emma.
