Vegan Pumpkin Bread with Cranberry

Vegan Pumpkin BreadThis Vegan Pumpkin Bread with Cranberries is moist and delicious…and it’s really pumpkin-y! It won’t last 5 minutes at your next holiday gathering!

Pumpkin is a favorite ingredient of mine. Doesn’t matter whether it’s in a pie, a cookie, bread, pudding or anything else. I love it! Amelia made this Vegan Pumpkin Bread at my request because we had a can of pumpkin to use and I couldn’t let it just sit there doing nothing.

The cranberries give it a little extra texture, tartness and sweetness. I’m usually a pumpkin purest, but the cranberries taste really good in it.

Enjoy topped with a little vanilla yogurt or nice-cream.

Cranberry Oatmeal with Green Apples

Cranberry OatmealThis Cranberry Oatmeal with Green Apples recipe is both sweet and tart. With 7 grams of fiber and 4 grams of protein but only 215 calories, it’s also a filling and nutritious breakfast.

We like to use green Granny Smith apples in sweet recipes to add some tartness. If you have a sensitive palette or don’t like your breakfast dishes to be tart, try using regular red Gala apples and let us know how it turns out.

Don’t use instant oats for this, or really any recipe. All of the nutrients have been processed out, which is why they cook so quickly. Steel cut oats are the best. They’re chewier and more filling. Regular rolled oats are the next best, but they don’t stick to your ribs for nearly as long.

Amelia doesn’t have a sweet tooth like I do so she left out the brown sugar. It was way too tart for me (and probably the rest of humanity) so I added a tablespoon of brown sugar to mine. That sweetened it up just enough to balance the tartness.

Vegan Cranberry Sauce

Vegan Cranberry SauceYou don’t need turkey to enjoy this delicious vegan cranberry sauce. It’s the prefect companion for your vegan holiday meals, especially our Vegan Wellington or a Gardein Holiday Roast.

By cooking fresh cranberries with Granny Smith apples, orange juice, orange zest and lots of sugar, you get a deliciously tart and sweet vegan cranberry sauce. Your tastebuds will dance with excitement and your family will know it can’t possibly be from a can.

You may be tempted to add more liquid to the sauce when you first add the cranberries, but resist the urge. The cranberries are full of juice that will be released when they pop.
