– 3 mandarin seedless oranges (peeled) – 1/2 inch root ginger – 1/4 cup flax meal (soaked in 1/2 cup warm water) – 3/4 cup + 1 tbsp. maple syrup – 1 tsp vanilla extract – 2 cups oat flour – 1 tsp baking powder – 1 tsp baking soda – 1/4 tsp salt – 1 cup fresh cranberries – 1 orange zest
Combine oranges and ginger in a blender and blend it smooth (do not add any water). Strain with the help of a strainer. Press the pulp well with a spoon to squeeze out as much juice as possible and keep the juice aside. Discard the remaining pulp.
Preheat oven at 350-degree Fahrenheit and prepare a standard size ( 8 ½ inch ) bread pan with parchment paper. Keep it aside. – In the soaked flaxmeal combine orange juice, vanilla extract, maple syrup and whip it well.
– In another large mixing bowl combine oat flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Mix it well and keep it aside.
Then add orange zest to it. Fold again only twice and pour it into the prepared bread pan.
– Place it in the middle rack of the oven and bake it for 50 minutes. Insert a tooth pick to check if it comes out clean. Tur it off and take it out. Let it cool down in the bread pan on a flat surface for 10minutes.
