Low Carb Orange Cranberry Bread

6 EB XL eggs
1 cup + 2 Tbsp almond flour & 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
3/4 cup Lakanto Monk Fruit
3 Tablespoons Coconut Oil
2-1/4 tsp Xanthen Gum
1-1/2 tsp Baking Powder
1/2-3/4 tsp salt (Depending on your sensitivity to salt)
1 tsp Real Vanilla extract

1 tsp Lemon extract

1 Tablespoon Orange extract

2 Tablespoons Orange zest (grated Orange peel)

6 oz. fresh cranberries (1/2 pkg), chopped/puréed in a food processor

Although this is more of a Christmas time bread, if you think ahead and buy a bunch of bags of cranberries when they are available (like 12!) you can enjoy this year round. Actually, you might substitute low sugar Craisens for the cranberries and it tastes delicious! PLUS, there is an orange butter that is delicious to spread on top. (However, Craisens, even the lower sugar variety, are certainly NOT low carb.)

Just before placing in the oven

Orange Butter

1/2 cup butter or margarine softened

3 Tbsp confectioners sugar, and 3 Tbsp powdered Monk Fruit

2 tsp Orange zest OR 1 Tbsp frozen OJ concentrate (if you choose the OJ concentrate, you obviously have more carbs, and you may have to add more conf sugar or powdered Monk Fruit to thicken it) Slather this on a warm slice of bread, and you’ll be in Heaven!

Yum!

Carb content per slice (for 12 slices) is about: 7.5

Carb content of the Orange Butter: 30gm for the whole thing, unless you use OJ. With the OJ concentrate that will bring it up to about 45gms. How many grams per serving is up to you!
