In the Mood...

"I'm in the mood for love, simply because you're near me.
Funny, but when you're near me, I'm in the mood for love."

'In the Mood for Cranberry Nut Bread' Recipe

2 cups brown rice flour
1 1/4 cup brown rice syrup
2 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. sea salt
1 "egg's worth" of egg replacer (like Ener-G, banana, appalesauce, etc.)
1/2 cup fruit juice (like cranberry, pomegranite, etc.)
3 tbsp. olive oil
2 cups coarsely chopped cranberries
1/2 cip coarsely chopped walnuts

Preheat oven 350 degrees. Mix dry ingredients. Mix in brown rice syrup, then the rest of the wet ingredients. Fold in cranberries and walnuts last. Bake for 1 hour (or until a tooth pick poke comes out semi clean).

Serving Suggestion: Smother with Earth Balance buttery spread (or other vegan butter/ margarine) and enjoy! For the next morning for breakfast, warm in toaster oven...then smear with Earth Balance!

Recipe Tips:

-Don't get alarmed when you add the wet ingredients and juice; it will look watery at first. Once you add the chopped cranberries and walnuts, it turns back into a nice dough.
-Use a bread pan. I used a Wilton bread loaf pan.
-I used whole, shelled, organic walnuts. They were Nature's Promise brand, and were nice and fresh when I chopped them myself.

I was definitley in the mood for this bread! And it will still love me in the morning since I used brown rice flour and syrup...and because it is vegan.

  2. Looks really good!!! Any left for tomorrow. :) love mom
