  • 2 tablespoons flaxseeds ground
  • 5 tablespoons water
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup oat milk or other plant-based milk
  • zest of 1 orange
  • 2 tablespoons orange juice
  • 1/2 cup applesauce no sugar added
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups flour I use white wheat
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups cranberries fresh or frozen

Orange Glaze

  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 tablespoons orange juice
  • zest of 1 orange optional
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract


Make the bread

  • Preheat the oven to 350°F
  • Prepare a standard loaf pan (5x9 inch) by greasing it or use parchment paper. Alternatively, use a silicone pan.
  • n a small bowl, combine the ground flaxseed and water. Set aside to thicken for 5 minutes. (These are your flax eggs)
  • In a large bowl, whisk together the sugar, oat milk, orange zest, orange juice, applesauce, flax eggs, and vanilla until well-combined.
  • In a separate bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, and salt.
  • Add the flour mixture to the wet ingredients. Stir just until combined. Avoid over-mixing.
  • Gently fold the cranberries into the batter.
  • Pour into the prepared pan. Place in the center rack of the oven. Bake for 55-65 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  • Let the bread cool for 10 minutes in the pan. Then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

Make the Glaze

  • In a medium bowl, add the powdered sugar, orange juice, zest, and vanilla. Stir with a fork or whip lightly with a whisk until smooth.
  • When the bread is completely cool, drizzle or spread the glaze over the top.
