Ingredients

  • 2 tbsp chia seeds

  • 1½ cup all purpose flour
  • 1 cup leftover cranberry sauce (I used Maple Cinnamon Cranberry Pear Sauce)

  • ½ cup coconut oil, melted
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp salt

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.
  2. Line a loaf pan with parchment paper or spray lightly with cooking spray.
  3. Mix chia seeds and water in a small bowl and set aside.
  4. Combine cranberry sauce and baking powder in a large bowl and whisk.
  5. Add sugar, melted coconut oil and vanilla to the cranberry sauce mixture.
  6. In a medium bowl, whisk flour, baking soda and salt.
  7. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, a little at a time, until fully incorporated.
  8. Scrape mixture into the lined/sprayed loaf pan.
  9. Bake for 65-80 minutes until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. (All ovens vary, so keep on eye on it).
  10. Let cool in the pan on a wire rack for 10 minutes.
  11. Take bread out of pan and continue to completely cool on wire rack before slicing.
