Cranberry Orange Oatmeal Bread – 3 Points+

Posted Jan 06 2012 5:14pm

We enjoyed this yummy cranberry orange oatmeal bread for breakfast today. I’ve wanted to make it since I first spotted the recipe well before Christmas. For me the holiday season isn’t complete until I’ve had a slice of cranberry bread or cranberry muffin.

I’ve never had cranberry oatmeal bread, but since I loved the recipe for banana oat bread I made a while back, I decided to give it a go.

I woke up with energy to spare and decided to make it with the bag of cranberries that have been waiting patiently in the fridge. The bread turned out moist and dense and tart and sweet with flecks of orange zest. Both mom and I loved it! It didn’t

This would be delicious baked as muffins too.

Please note that the serving size is small – just 1/2 a slice. And if you’re like me, you may have a hard time not going back for more!

And if this isn’t the recipe for you, I’ve gathered a great collection of healthy cranberry bread and muffin recipes and calcuated their pointsplus values at the end of this post. Enjoy!

The directions say to let it cool for a day before slicing and serving but we sliced it warm this morning. It was a bit crumbly, but still delicious!
