This recipe for gluten free, sugar free cranberry walnut bread is probably too late to give as gifts, but there’s enough time to make a loaf or two for Christmas if you choose. Sometimes readers e-mail asking for specific recipes. A recent request for cranberry bread tugged at my heart strings, as the author has recently transitioned to a gluten free diet but still wanted to bake her traditional loaf for the holidays.
Naturally, I wanted to help. Though newly married, Joe and I have started some of our own traditions. They bring a sense of togetherness, peace, and comfort to our lives.
Made from buckwheat and quinoa, this moist and tender treat is better than the holiday breads I remember from the days before being gluten free. There’s no need for xanthan gum because the flours hold together on their own. It would be decadent served with whipped cream cheese, warm applesauce, or freshly whipped cream.
