  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup white whole wheat flour can substitute with all-purpose
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar packed
  • 1 and 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 3/4 cup orange juice
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup sweetened dried cranberries


  • Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. Generously grease a standard 9"x5" loaf pan and set aside.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together the flours, sugars, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
  • In a medium sized bowl, mix together the applesauce, orange juice, and egg. Transfer this to the large bowl with the dry ingredients and mix until a few dry streaks remain. Toss in the cranberries and mix until everything just comes together - do not over mix.
  • Transfer the batter to your prepared loaf pan and bake in your preheated oven for 60-75 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Allow the bread to cool before slicing and serving.


Bread should be stored in an airtight container at room temperature or in the refrigerator. It can also be frozen and thawed.
