Cranberry, pecan & dark chocolate loaf

May 1, 2015

I was in the mood for baking a loaf today, but not just any loaf, one that felt like it would be too many points to spare…and I think I came up with a good combination. This delicious loaf is full of cranberries, pecans and chocolate, and your taste buds will be happy! ๐Ÿ™‚ Easy to make, and only 4 points per slice.


Cranberry, pecan & dark chocolate loaf
Recipe type: Baking
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 10
  • 1.5 cups flour
  • ⅓ cup oats
  • ¼ cup brown sugar
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • ½ cup almond milk
  • ¼ cup unsweetened apple sauce
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • ¼ cup dried cranberries
  • ¼ cup pecan pieces
  • 3 squares (30g) 70% dark chocolate (I use the lindt bar)
  1. Preheat oven to 350F, spray a regular sized loaf pan and set aside.
  2. In a bowl mix all your dry ingredients together.
  3. Stir in your milk, apple sauce, egg and vanilla and mix well.
  4. Break up your chocolate squares, I use a small zip lock and just break them up using a heavy glass.
  5. Gently fold in your cranberries, pecans and broken up chocolate.
  6. Pour into your loaf pan, use a spatula to make sure you get all the batter in. Batter will be thick.
  7. Bake in the oven for 35-40 minutes.
  8. Let cool and cut into 10 slices, each slice is 4pp. Store in a sealed container in the fridge for best results.

    Would you mind telling me the size of the loaf pan you use? I just purchased what I assumed was a standard size one but it looks a bit small lol. Thanks! ๐Ÿ™‚
