Cranberry-Almond Loaf

I love almonds. They are a superfood and of course one of my favorite things to nibble on. I like almonds so much that I wrote an entire book about them.

This recipe is a great gluten-free bread option during Thanksgiving, or any other time of year.

Ingredients

  • 3/4 Cups creamy roasted almond butter, at room temperature
  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1/4 Cup arrowroot powder
  • 1/2 Teaspoon sea salt, preferably Celtic
  • 1/4 Teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 Cup dried apricots, chopped into 1/4-inch pieces
  • 1/2 Cup dried cranberries
  • 1/4 Cup sesame seeds
  • 1/4 Cup sunflower seeds
  • 1/4 Cup pumpkin seeds
  • 1/4 Cup sliced almonds, plus 2 tablespoons to top the loaf
  • Olive oil, for greasing
  • Blanched almond flour, for dusting

Directions

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

In a large bowl, blend the almond butter, olive oil, and eggs with a hand blender until smooth.

In a medium-sized bowl, combine the arrowroot powder, salt, and baking soda. Blend the arrowroot mixture into the wet ingredients until thoroughly combined. Fold in the dried apricots, cranberries, seeds, and sliced almonds.

Grease a 7 ½-by-3 ½-inch magic line loaf pan with olive oil and dust with almond flour. Transfer the batter into the loaf pan and sprinkle the remaining sliced almonds on top.

Bake until a knife inserted into center comes out clean, about 40-50 minutes. Let the bread cool in the pan for 1 hour, then serve.

Cranberry Shopping Tip

Buying fruits in season when they are at the peak of their freshness make for great tasting food and can save you money.

Cranberry Cooking Tip

Don’t throw out your overripe fruit – instead blend into a smoothie or salad dressing, add to muffin batter, bake into a cobbler, or boil down with sugar and a little lemon juice to make jam.
