Recipe by

This bread is insanely flavorful with an intense orange flavor. You'd never guess this to have almost no fat, carbs or cholesterol! A loaf of this in our house barely comes out of the oven before it's gone. You can substitute raisins or dates for the cranberries, but we like the tang of the cranberries.
