Chocolate Cranberry Quick Bread



Hey friends!  If you hadn't noticed I've been on a bit of a hiatus.  We had a baby!



Miss Sydney was born September 25th.  Words cannot express our love for this sweet little one.  I can't wait to share all of the details about her birth and our last few months together at home, but first I'm going to tell you about Chocolate Cranberry Quick Bread!

This is a super easy sweet breakfast addition or dessert for the Holidays.  The rich chocolate paired with tart cranberry is super delish!



If you are looking for something quick to make this is your dish.  Hope you enjoy it!
I'll be back soon to tell you all about that babe!

Ingredients:

1 1/2 cups semisweet chocolate chips or chunks
1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
2/3 cup brown sugar, packed
2 eggs
1 1/2 cups applesauce (sweetened or unsweetened)
2 teaspoons quality vanilla extract
2 1/2 cups AP flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup fresh cranberries

How to:

Preheat oven to 350
Melt 1 cup chocolate chips/chunks in microwave safe bowl or on your stovetop if you don't have a microwave (like us!).  Set aside.
Using your stand mixer or in a large bowl, cream butter and brown sugar until light and fluffy. 
Once chocolate is cool, add chocolate and eggs, mix well. 
Then add applesauce and vanilla, mix well.
In a separate bowl mix your dry ingredients (flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt).
Add dry mixture to wet mixture and mix well.
Stir in remaining chocolate chips/chunks and fresh cranberries.
Pour batter into 2  (9x5) greased loaf pans (I use coconut oil spray to grease my pans).
Bake in 350 degree oven for 35-40 minutes or until a toothpick or knife inserted in center comes out clean.
Eat and enjoy!
