Tis the season for some baking! Nothing gets us into the festive spirit more than baking delicious cookies, cakes, and breads during the holiday season. Treat family and friends to this easy-to-bake Cranberry Walnut Bread that tastes just as good as it looks. Fresh cranberries look extra festive in this recipe and provide a sweet yet tart taste, while the walnuts add a bit of crunch. Baking with canola oil instead of butter reduces the saturated fat and eliminates cholesterol. Plus, since canola oil is high in heart-healthy mono- and polyunsaturated fats, it’s the perfect choice of fat for baking. This recipe makes a perfect hostess gift, and tastes delicious with a swipe of Canola Harvest margarine on top.
