  • 2 Large Eggs
  • ¼ Cup Coconut Oil melted
  • Cup Maple Syrup
  • Tbsp Orange Zest
  • 1 Tsp Vanilla
  • ½ Cup Buttermilk
  • 2 Cups Fresh Cranberries
  • Cup Oat Flour
  • Cup Gluten-free Flour Mix
  • Tsp Baking Powder
  • 1 Tsp Salt


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and line a 9x5 inch loaf pan with parchment.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk flours, baking powder, and salt.
  • In another mixing bowl, beat together the eggs, coconut oil, maple syrup, orange zest,
    vanilla, and buttermilk.
  • Mix at high speed with an electric mixer for about 10 minutes or until pale and creamy.
  • Now, add in the flour mixture and beat until smooth, 1-2 minutes. Add cranberries, gently fold to combine.
  • Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan and bake for 40-50 min or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean.


  • Use a preheated oven.
  • To check doneness, use a knife inserted in the center, if it comes out clean, the Cranberry Orange Bread is ready.
  • This bread was made without orange juice. If you would like to add some, you may add about 1/2 a cup but you would have to add another 1/4 cup of oat or gluten-free flour.
  • You can whip up a couple of these as easily as one, so feel free to double the ingredients. One for you and one for a friend (or two for you!).
  • Use a greased loaf pan.
  • If you like, add some chopped nuts. Nuts are a wonderful addition and compliment the flavors of the bread beautifully.
  •  If using frozen cranberries, you do not need to thaw them.
  • Invest in an oven thermometer. If you don't have one already, they are great for baking! Most ovens vary in temperature, an inexpensive oven thermometer is a great way to bake your loaf perfectly
