Quick Cranberry & Flax Seed Mix Bread!

Prep Time: 10 Minutes

Cook Time: 25 Minutes

Baking my own bread is somewhat like a stress buster for me, but since I am mostly running short on time I like finding or experimenting with quick recipes. Today, I tried a cranberry vegan bread recipe. Now instead of using bananas (a natural substitute for eggs) I chose to use the flax seed mix instead. My reason for this was very clear; I didn’t want the bananas to overpower the flavor of the bread.

Another interesting fact about this recipe is that instead of traditional yeast, I am going to use baking powder. This also helps reduce the overall time spent in preparing this vegan bread. Another great tip is to not work the batter up a lot; a few lumps here and there are fine. Let me get started with the ingredients now?


  • 1 to 1½ cup of cranberries
  • 2 cups of all purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup of sugar
  • 10 to 15 walnuts
  • 2 teaspoons of baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon of salt
  • 1 packet of organic flax seed mix
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 1/2 cup of vegetable oil


  • Step 1: Preheat your oven to 350 Fahrenheit for about 15 to 20 minutes.
  • Step 2: Use a teaspoon of the vegetable oil to grease the loaf pan.
  • Step 3: Next, take a large bowl and add the flour, baking powder and salt.
  • Step 4: At this very stage, you can also add the cranberries.
  • Step 5: Crush the walnuts and add them to the bowl along with the sugar.
  • Step 6: Whisk the flax seed meal, lemon zest and water in another bowl.
  • Step 7: Mix the dry ingredients with the wet until the bread mix is white and foamy. You can use a blender if you like.
  • Step 8: Pour the bread batter into the loaf pan and bake for about 50 to 60 minutes.
  • Step 9: Cool the loaf for 10 to 20 minutes before removing it from the pan.

Remember to let the bread sit for a while before slicing it or else it will simply crumble. My bread lasted for 4 days in the refrigerator. Hope you liked this recipe.

    This looks fantastic! Thanks so much for sharing, Neha. Do you tend to prefer banana or flax as an egg replacer? I really enjoy using chia seed personally.

      I usually prefer bananas, but for this particular recipe the flax seed mix worked perfectly. I think I should give chia seeds a shot too.

    This bread sounds wonderful, but there's a missing ingredient. I attempted to make this last night. There's not enough wet ingredients.

      Thank you! Try adding 1/2 cup of orange juice if that's the case.
