Cranberry Banana Bread
Sometimes we just get hungry for a certain thing. Of course it's a bad craving when you want brad, and you are supposed to be on gluten free diet.
Probably why gluten free flour were created. Anyway, I've been trying to cone up with some good recipes for when that craving strikes.
I found a cranberry orange bread in my old Weight Watchers cookbook. I of course modified it to fit my chosen lifestyle, added bananas and if you are on weight watches, it's about 6 points a serving.
