What I love about this bread besides the wonderful flavor and beautiful color, is the texture! Using both almond flour and oat fiber really gives it that traditional texture that you’d find in recipes using regular flour. So you’d never know it was both a Keto friendly and gluten-free bread!
The combination of cranberries and orange in this recipe is so nice! In fact I often add orange zest or juice to other recipes that I make using cranberries, it just creates a great balance of flavors.
Cranberries are one of several fruits that are perfectly ok to enjoy on a Keto diet. I’ve made several recipes including Cranberry Orange Scones, Homemade Cranberry Sauce, Cranberry Sauce & Walnut Muffins and Cranberry & Walnut Crumble Bars! Give this Low Carb cranberry bread a try and you’ll want to add it to your list of cranberry recipes to make every fall!

How to Make Keto Cranberry Orange Bread
Preheat oven to 325F.
Mix together the almond flour, oat fiber, baking powder and salt in a bowl, then set aside.
In a separate bowl, mix together the eggs, sour cream, Swerve confectioners, heavy cream, orange zest, vanilla and orange extracts.
Add in the dry ingredients and mix just until combined.
Stir in the cranberries.
Then pour the batter into a loaf pan that’s been sprayed with nonstick spray.
Bake for 40-45 minutes, or until a toothpick, when inserted comes out clean. Mine took exactly 45 minutes.
While the loaf is cooling, mix together the ingredients for the orange glaze and drizzle over the top of the loaf before serving.
Store leftovers in the fridge for several days or freeze.
Tips for Making the Best Keto and Gluten-Free Cranberry Orange Bread
Instead of using a loaf pan, you could make these into cranberry orange muffins if you wanted to. Just be sure to adjust the cooking time down quite a bit. It would likely take somewhere around 25 minutes or so to cook them through using Silicone Baking Muffin Cups.
I use orange extract to give this bread a little more orange flavor, but if you don’t have any on hand you can just omit it or add more orange zest. I wouldn’t omit the orange zest however, it really gives a nice balance to the cranberries without adding extra carbs.
Are Cranberries Keto?
Certainly! Cranberries are so healthy and contain fiber, Vitamin C, E, K1 and Manganese. For more information on the healthy benefits of cranberries, read this article! Cranberries are absolutely perfect in making these sugar-free cranberry scones!
How Many Carbs in Cranberries?
There are 7.6 net carbs in one cup of raw unsweetened cranberries and this recipe uses 2 cups. But split amongst 10 servings, the impact is just over 1 carb for each serving, so it’s really minimal.
Is Oat Fiber the Same as Oat Flour? Is Oat Fiber Keto?
Oat Fiber is not the same as Oat Flour, which is made from grinding oats. Oat Fiber is made from grinding the outer husks of oats and is pure insoluble fiber. Insoluble fiber does not dissolve in water and is not broken down in the digestive tract, so it’s Low Carb and Keto friendly.
The Oat Fiber is really important in this recipe! I use it in so many Keto dessert recipes, because of the amazing texture it gives whatever I am baking! It is hands down, the best ingredient I’ve baked with.
I use LifeSource Oat Fiber because they grind it to a very fine powder and has a mild flavor. The bag lasts a while, because you don’t need to use very much in your recipes.
I made so many Keto recipes with oat fiber like blueberry muffins, ricotta almond pancakes, coconut lime cupcakes, coffee crumb cake, chicken francese, chocolate chip cookies, focaccia and so many more!
