Ingredients
Serves 8
_
1/4 cup canola oil, plus more for pan
1 cup rolled oats
1 cup all-purpose flour, (spooned and leveled), plus more for pan
1/2 cup sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground cardamon
3/4 cup plain low-fat yogurt
2 large eggs
1 cup cranberries, fresh or frozen (not thawed)
1/4 cup crystallized ginger, coarsely chopped
_
Directions
_
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly oil and flour an 8 1/2-by-4 1/2-inch loaf pan. Spread oats on a rimmed baking sheet and toast until golden brown and fragrant, about 10 minutes. Transfer to a food processor and pulse until finely ground. Place in a large bowl; stir in flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and cardamom.
_
In a separate bowl, stir together yogurt, oil, and eggs; whisk until combined. Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and pour in the liquid ingredients; stir until just combined. Fold in cranberries and ginger.
_
Spoon mixture into the prepared pan and smooth top with a rubber spatula. Bake until a toothpick inserted in center of the loaf comes out just clean, about 50 minutes. Check the loaf after 30 minutes and tent with aluminum foil if browning too quickly. Cool 10 minutes in the pan, and then run a metal spatula around edges and invert loaf onto a rack. Turn right side up to cool completely before slicing.

Absolutely yummy! The one thing I admire most about fruits of the west are the berries, all kinds. It is so terribly expensive here that practically no ones buy them. Have an extra bite for me :)

Sabina...That bread looks and sounds delicious. Have bookmarked recipe for holiday baking. Love the addition of crystalized ginger...the only ingredient I am missing in my pantry.

This actually has nutritious ingredients too. I have already had my fill of super rich foods. Liking and craving the plainer things. Thanks for posting something I will actually prepare. ♥Rosemary

Hi Sabina, you have been so busy posting since I visited your blog last, I loved the post about our food, and the story of Kelly Corrigan is very moving, and one that is so inspiring. I read true stories and never fail to be inspired and touched by the struggles people go through. I am looking forward to the holiday season and will definitely try out your bread recipe. hugs Margie.

Back in the old days I used to make a bread a lot like this for holiday gifts...maybe its time to bring it back, it was delicious then, and it will be again!
