White Chocolate Cranberry Loaf 1

White Chocolate Cranberry Loaf

Serves: 8

Happy Monday! I hope you had a great holiday weekend with your family and friends! My holiday was wonderful, filled with family, friends and of course, work! 🙂 This time of year is very important for exercise with all the holiday goodies around us, so there is no rest for the weary! But having delicious and healthy treats like this recipe around makes the days much more yummy! 😉

This month the Recipe Redux had a challenge for us using Monk Fruit In The Raw to make a recipe healthier! For those of you unfamiliar with this new product, Monk Fruit In The Raw is a 100% Natural, Zero Calorie Sweetener that measures cup for cup like sugar. I had never heard of it or tasted it prior to this challenge and then all of a sudden commercials started popping up on TV and I received some samples! It was absolutely delicious and has a sweet flavor that resembles a brown sugar. It didn’t leave any after taste either! I used it in this recipe to replace normal white sugar, which reduced the calories dramatically!

I hope you enjoy the recipe and make sure to try out this new product and let me know your thoughts!

Have a great day! 🙂
