Okay, so there are few must buys when I go grocery shopping. Bread, eggs, milk and bananas are all items I don’t bother writing down. We just always buy them. Another must have: Ocean Spray® Craisins® Dried Cranberries.
We eat Craisins® Dried Cranberries all the time. Ocean Spray® Craisins® Dried Cranberries make EVERYTHING taste better and make living a healthy lifestyle more fun and enjoyable. We add them to our homemade granola, breads, muffins and trail mix. In fact, my husband wanted me to buy some for his recent bicycle trip. They are great for on the go snacking. Since our children eat them by the handfuls, I like how only 1/4 cup of Ocean Spray® Craisins® Dried Cranberries provides 1/2 cup of fruit.
Win for mom. 🙂
With fall rapidly approaching, I was in the mood for some fall baking. Fall baking, of course, means pumpkin. Pumpkin bread is a favorite around here so I make it often. I enjoy adding different ingredients to the pumpkin bread from time to time like Craisins® Dried Cranberries. The Craisins® Dried Cranberries add such a complimentary flavor to the pumpkin bread.
Pumpkin Cranberry Bread
With the Pumpkin Cranberry Bread in mind, I headed to Walmart. You can buy large 24 oz bags of Craisins® Dried Cranberries and I enjoy buying in bulk. Ocean Spray® Craisins® Dried Cranberries may not be at your local Sam’s Club, however the large 24 oz bags can still be found at other retailers. I bought them at Walmart.
The large bags of Craisins® Dried Cranberries are located in the canned fruit and vegetable aisle at Walmart by the smaller bags of Craisins® Dried Cranberries. There is a rollback price of $4.98 for the 24 oz package.
Making the Pumpkin Cranberry Bread recipe was very simple.
First you mix together the eggs and oil. Or, I often substitute an equal amount of applesauce in place of the oil for a healthier version.
Then, mix in the pumpkin and vanilla pudding mix.
Stir in the dry ingredients and then add the Craisins® Dried Cranberries.
The result is a delicious, moist and tasty Pumpkin Cranberry Bread that your family will love.
