Low Carb Cranberry Nut Bread

The worst part about a low carb diet is not having any bread.  I really miss my bread, but I did find a cranberry nut bread recipe that is worth sharing.  It's made with almond flour.  It is good, but I still want real bread!

Low Carb Cranberry Nut Bread

2 cups whole cranberries, fresh or frozen
2 1/2 cups almond meal/flour
1/3 cup powdered egg whites
2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
3/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup sugar or the equivalent with artificial sweetener
1 stick butter, melted (1/2 cup)
3 eggs
3/4 cup water
1/2 cup chopped pecans, optional

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Place a piece of parchment paper in the bottom of a large loaf pan and butter the bottom and a little way up the sides.

Chop cranberries or pulse in a food processor.  Be careful--not too fine or they get lost because they shrink during cooking. (I just left mine whole.)

Mix dry ingredients together (almond meal, egg white, baking powder, salt, sugar or sweetener if it's powdered).

Add the wet ingredients and mix well.  Fold in cranberries.

Pour batter into pan and bake about 40 to 50 minutes until top is golden brown and toothpick comes out clean.
