Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350*. Coat a 9x5" loaf pan with nonstick spray.
  2. In a large bowl, stir together the unbleached or all-purpose flour, whole wheat flour, wheat germ, brown sugar, white sugar, orange peel, baking powder, and baking soda. Make a well in the center of the flour mixture.
  3. In a medium bowl, whisk together the orange juice, applesauce, egg whites, and vanilla extract until thoroughly blended. Scrape into the well in the flour mixture and stir just until moistened. Fold in the chopped and dried cranberries.
  4. Scrape the mixture into the prepared pan. Bake for 50-55 minutes, or until the bread begins to pull away from the sides of the pan. Allow the bread to cool in the pan for 10 minutes. Remove from the pan and cool completely on a rack.
