November 2, 2017

I had some fresh cranberries left in my fridge and I did not want them to go to waste! I am always up for baking a loaf, I love a fresh slice out of the oven with a cup of tea in the afternoon.. I was excited about this cranberry lemon loaf and it did not disappoint, sweet and tasty and just 3 smart points per serving. Bake one up today.. I promise you’ll be happy you did 🙂

  • ½ cup skry plain yogurt (0% greek is fine too)

  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 Tbsp fresh squeezed lemon
  • 1.5 tsp lemon zest
  • 1.5 cups flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 heaping cup fresh cranberries (frozen will work, just might be a little more water to them)
  • FOR THE GLAZE
  • 2 tsp fresh squeezed lemon
  • 3 Tbsp icing sugar (confectionery sugar, AKA powdered sugar)
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 375F, spray a regular size loaf pan with some cooking spray.

  5. Gently fold in your cranberries.
  6. Fill loaf pan and bake in oven for 40 minutes.
  7. Make glaze by mixing your 2 tsp lemon juice with 3 Tbsp icing sugar, once loaf has cooled a bit pour glaze over top, it does not give you a lot but enough to add a light coat to top of loaf.
