Why am I doing this? As you can imagine, I love almonds. They are a superfood and of course one of my favorite things to nibble on. I like almonds so much that I wrote an entire book about them. The Gluten-Free Almond Flour Cookbook uses almonds in all of its recipes and is a wonderful symbol of my love for that most nutritious of all nuts.
In my work with the Almond Board, I have written 4 recipes just for them (and you all, of course). Here is the first one for a Cranberry Almond Loaf.
Transfer batter into loaf pan and sprinkle remaining sliced almonds on top
Bake at 350° for 40-50 minutes until a knife inserted into center comes out clean
Let bread cool in pan for 1 hour, then serve
Slice this Cranberry Almond Loaf and enjoy it as a jazzed up base for your Turkey Club Sandwich. Or toast it and dip in olive oil for a delicious breakfast or after dinner treat. Personally, I like mine toasted and smothered in goat cheese.
