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! 🙂 Easy to make, and only 4 points per slice.

Servings 10

Ingredients
  

  • 1.5 cups flour
  • 1/3 cup oats
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup almond milk
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened apple sauce
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/4 cup dried cranberries
  • 1/4 cup pecan pieces
  • 3 squares 30g 70% dark chocolate (I use the lindt bar)

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 350F, spray a regular sized loaf pan and set aside.
  • In a bowl mix all your dry ingredients together.
  • Stir in your milk, apple sauce, egg and vanilla and mix well.
  • Break up your chocolate squares, I use a small zip lock and just break them up using a heavy glass.
  • Gently fold in your cranberries, pecans and broken up chocolate.
  • Pour into your loaf pan, use a spatula to make sure you get all the batter in. Batter will be thick.
  • Bake in the oven for 35-40 minutes.
  • Let cool and cut into 10 slices, each slice is 4pp. Store in a sealed container in the fridge for best results.

      Sam reply as the cupcakes 😉 I would guess it goes up 1SP per serving, most my loaves did

  1. 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! 🙂
