Cranberry Banana Bread and Bye-bye MoFo

I wasn’t a full-on participant in VeganMoFo, but I sure have enjoyed this undertaking. I would like to especially commend 3 fellow bloggers I read regularly for their faithful posting this month. Jenna of B36 Kitchen posted nearly every day while traveling and taking care of her newborn daughter. Celine, my baking queen, of Have Cake, Will Travel, perhaps didn’t post her mouthwatering recipes every day, but made up for it with 2 or 3 posts on some days. And Bazu of Where’s the Revolution? provided us with her usual insightful and informative writings and beautiful food pictures every MoFo day, including once while inebriated! Awesome job, ladies. Thank you!

My end of November offering is this gluten free loaf of Cranberry Banana Quinoa Bread.

I slightly adapted this recipe, which will also point you to wheat and oat version, by replacing the 2 eggs with 1 flax egg, adding cinnamon, and using fresh instead of dried cranberries. The bread tastes wonderful, is very moist, and keeps well in the fridge.

It would make nice mini loaves for Christmas gifts!

Oh! Great idea! I love the use of quinoa. Yes, they'd make great holiday gifts and great little loaves to bring to the host!

Congrats on the food of the month! You sure kept up with that very well.

Looks so yummy.

Although I didn;t participate in Vegan MoFo, I sure was enjoying the show and recipes. Hey--for us vegans, every month is Vegan MoFo!

Although I was not able to commit to VeganMoFo, I have thoroughly enjoyed everyone's posts - especially yours, Diann!! Your rendition of the Whole Foods' Cranberry-Banana-Quinoa Bread recipe looks stellar; and definitely WOULD make lovely Christmas gifts!!

I got a little slack about VeganMoFo towards the end, but I enjoyed participating as much as I could. Your loaf is a wonderful contribution to the end MoFo.
I'm planning to have a gluten-free month in January, and your loaf looks like the perfect way to get things started!

Your bread would be perfect in little loafs for Christmas gifts - I'm always looking for fun homemade goodie ideas.

The bread looks so good!

Wonderful note to end on, Diann! That cranberry bread sure looks good.

I read back through all your posts that I've missed recently... and let me just say that I was amazed by your Thanksgiving spread. It all looks so good, and so creative (those green bean bundles--how awesome!)... and the pumpkin layer cake? Wow.

Awww, I'm kind of sad to see VeganMoFo go, but it was such a fun month. As usual, you've given us another recipe for the must-make file- and what a lovely idea to make mini-loaves to give away. I love cranberries in any form.

Great loaf looks delicious. We now get dried cranverries here so I must also try them in recipes but sadly as a poor baker it won't be in bakied goods.

Emilie said...

you've inspired me to get with the grain experimentation in baking. i had a sweet treats cookie tonight that had quinoa in it and it was great--this looks like a recipe to definitely try out. thanks!

Generic Viagra (sildenafil citrate; brand names include: Aphrodil / Edegra / Erasmo / Penegra / Revatio / Supra / Zwagra) is an effective treatment for erectile dysfunction regardless of the cause or duration of the problem or the age of the patient.
Sildenafil Citrate is the active ingredient used to treat erectile dysfunction (impotence) in men. It can help men who have erectile dysfunction get and sustain an erection when they are sexually excited.
Generic Viagra is manufactured in accordance with World Health Organization standards and guidelines (WHO-GMP). Also you can find on our sites.
Generic Viagra is made with thorough reverse engineering for the sildenafil citrate molecule - a totally different process of making sildenafil and its reaction. That is why it takes effect in 15 minutes compared to other drugs which take 30-40 minutes to take effect.
Even in the most sexually liberated and self-satisfied of nations, many people still yearn to burn more, to feel ready for bedding no matter what the clock says and to desire their partner of 23 years as much as they did when their love was brand new.
The market is saturated with books on how to revive a flagging libido or spice up monotonous sex, and sex therapists say “lack of desire” is one of the most common complaints they hear from patients, particularly women.
