Cranberries and Nuts Bread

Cranberries and Nuts Bread for Diabetics

Well my friends with Diabetes, this is a bread that we can all eat in moderation and without the guilt.  This bread is specially made for diabetics,  low in sugar and rich in dry fruits and nuts.

I used this recipe here as a guide and changed some of it.  The original recipe calls for resting the bread wrapped in plastic or aluminum, one day before cutting and eating, but did not specify why that`s needed. Well I made two breads the same day, and cut only one.  I truly believe the reason for this is to make the bread moist, otherwise it will be a bit dry, if you cut it the same day of baking.

I made the same recipe twice, but substituted the 1 cup of regular flour with 1/2 cup of whole wheat and 1/2 cup of flour. The final ratio was 12 ounce of whole wheat flour and 4 ounce of regular flour.  I also added green pumpkin seeds and old-fashioned oats at the top for garnish before baking.

Ingredients:

1 1/2 C of whole wheat

1/2 C of ap flour

1/4 sugar

1 T baking powder

2 t orange grated rind

1 C orange juice

2 t vegetables oil

1 egg

1 C canberries

1/3 C raisins

1/3 walnuts or any combination of nuts like pecans, sliced almonds, brazilian nuts, pepitas or sunflower seeds
Swift and combine dry ingredients, and the orange rind.  Add the rest of the ingredients by hand and bake in a greased loaf pan for 45 to 50 minutes.  Cool in loaf pan and store in a plastic bag or aluminum sheet, before slicing at least one day.  The more you let it rest, the moister it will be.
