Vegan Orange Cranberry Bread

it is a fabulous day for aromatic, flavorful, doughy and all-around ridiculously scrumptious Vegan Orange Cranberry Bread. from the texture to the taste, you can’t go wrong with this combo! it’s festive and makes a wonderful breakfast, snack or dessert bread to keep on hand in the fridge! if you have never tried cranberries and oranges, the combo is a must-try!

the flavors of the bread merry so well together and it’s definitely not overly sweet. with 1/2 cup coconut palm sugar and 3/4 cup fresh orange juice, it feels like dessert but you can taste all of the flavors since there isn’t a sugar overload.

as far as that yummy frosting on top goes, it’s store-bought! love simple mills vanilla frosting with this recipe and some fun, festive sprinkles for decor :).

super excited about this one and the second official recipe for upbeetandkaleingit holiday dessert week 2020!! tag me in your awesome pictures so that i can repost on my stories.
