Low-Carb White Chocolate Cranberry Bread

This festive low-carb loaf cake recipe is fluffy, sweet and moist. It's bursting with orange and cranberry flavours, drizzled with silky smooth sugar-free white chocolate ganache, and topped with sweet and tart dried cranberries.

I used sour cream instead of the usual melted butter. I found that it keeps the bread fluffy and moist but not too wet or dense.

For this keto bread I'm using fresh cranberries although frozen and defrosted cranberries will work just as well. Don't skip the initial baking because that will remove excess moisture from the cranberries and will also add extra sweetness and flavour without "leaking" juices into the bread.

For the topping I used sugar-free white chocolate ganache topped with dried cranberries. They are easy to make but take hours to dehydrate so if you don't have any Sugar-Free Dried Cranberries ready, double the amount of ingredients needed to bake the cranberries so you have enough to use on top.

Where to Find Sugar-Free White Chocolate?

You can use sugar-free white chocolate sweetened with low-carb sweeteners such as Erythritol, FOS or Xylitol. If you live in the US, Choc Zero White Chocolate Chips are a great keto option. I can't get it in the UK so I used Xylitol based white chocolate.

Make sure to avoid chocolate sweetened with Sorbitol, Maltitol or IMOs as these seemingly low-carb options are not keto-friendly and would most likely spike your blood sugar.

If you can't find a healthy low-carb option, you can make your own sugar-free white chocolate like this Keto White Chocolate. If you use heavy cream powder and powdered Allulose, it's the closest you will ever get to regular white chocolate!

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 150 °C/ 300 °F (fan assisted), or 170 °C/ 340 °F (conventional). Halve the cranberries.
  2. Place the cranberries in a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Drizzle with coconut oil and toss to combine. Sprinkle the 2 tbsp sweetener all over the cranberries. Place in the oven and bake for 15 minutes. (You'll need some more dried cranberries for topping. If you don't have any Sugar-Free Dried Cranberries ready, double the amount of ingredients needed to bake the cranberries so you have enough to use on top.)
  3. Remove from the oven and let them cool down while you prepare the batter. Low-Carb White Chocolate Cranberry Bread
  4. Preheat the oven to 175 °C/ 350 °F (fan assisted), or 195 °C/ 380 °F (conventional). Line a loaf pan with parchment paper. I used a 21 x 11 x 6 cm (8 x 4 x 3 inch) pan but a slightly larger pan will also work.
  5. In a bowl, combine all the dry ingredients for the bread: almond flour, coconut flour, baking powder and the Erythritol. Low-Carb White Chocolate Cranberry Bread
  6. In another bowl, place the orange zest, eggs, vanilla and sour cream. Using an electric mixer, process until combined. Add the dry ingredients and process again. Low-Carb White Chocolate Cranberry Bread
  7. Add the cooked cranberries and fold into the batter. Low-Carb White Chocolate Cranberry Bread
  8. Pour the batter into the lined loaf pan. Place in the oven and bake for about 30 to 40 minutes, until the cake is set in the middle and the top is golden brown. If the cake browns too quick, you can loosely cover it with a baking foil.
  9. Remove from the oven and let it cool down completely. Then, just before adding the chocolate topping, place in the fridge for at least 30 minutes. This will help the chocolate solidify once you pour it over the cake. Low-Carb White Chocolate Cranberry Bread
  10. While the cake is in the fridge, prepare the white chocolate ganache topping. Break the chocolate into small pieces. In a small bowl, combine the cream and butter and microwave until hot, or use a small saucepan to heat up.
  11. Add the chocolate pieces into the bowl with the hot cream and butter mixture. Let it sit undisturbed for 5 minutes, and then stir to combine until smooth and glossy. Let the chocolate ganache cool down to room temperature before drizzling on top of the cake. Low-Carb White Chocolate Cranberry Bread
  12. Remove the cake from the fridge and pour the chocolate ganache on top. Low-Carb White Chocolate Cranberry Bread
  13. Finally, sprinkle with the Sugar-Free Dried Cranberries. Low-Carb White Chocolate Cranberry Bread
  14. Place the cake in the fridge for a few minutes to allow the chocolate ganache to set. Slice and serve. Low-Carb White Chocolate Cranberry Bread

I changed the way I ate in 2011, when I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s, an autoimmune disease that affects the thyroid. I had no energy, and I found it more and more difficult to maintain a healthy weight.

That’s when I decided to quit sugar, grains, and processed foods, and to start following a whole-foods-based ketogenic approach to food.
