Keto Cranberry Orange Loaf



For the loaf:

  • 2 cups almond flour
  • 1/4 cup coconut flour
  • 1/2 cup erythritol
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Zest of 1 orange
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup fresh cranberries

For the glaze:

  • 1/4 cup powdered erythritol
  • 1-2 tablespoons fresh orange juice


  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C) and grease a 9×5 inch loaf pan.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the almond flour, coconut flour, erythritol, baking powder, salt, and orange zest.
  3. In another bowl, whisk together the eggs, almond milk, melted butter, and vanilla extract. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix until well combined.
  4. Fold in the cranberries, then pour the batter into your prepared loaf pan.
  5. Bake for 50-60 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Allow the loaf to cool in the pan for 10 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
  6. For the glaze, mix the powdered erythritol with enough orange juice to reach a pourable consistency. Drizzle over the cooled loaf.

Ingredient Swaps

To cater to different dietary needs or ingredient availability, consider the following ingredient swaps:

  • Almond Flour: You can substitute almond flour with other nut flours such as hazelnut or pecan. Note that coconut flour is not a direct substitute due to its high absorbency.
  • Coconut Flour: If you’re allergic to coconut, you can use an additional 1/2 cup of almond flour instead.
  • Erythritol: You can replace erythritol with other keto-friendly sweeteners like xylitol or monk fruit sweetener, but be sure to adjust to taste as sweetness levels can vary.
  • Almond Milk: Feel free to substitute almond milk with other non-dairy milks such as coconut milk or cashew milk.
  • Butter: For a dairy-free version, replace the butter with coconut oil.
