We made this delicious quick bread even healthier by swapping out half of all-purpose flour for whole wheat pastry flour and swapping the sugar in favor of local maple syrup.
Preheat oven to 350 F degrees. Grease a 9 x 5 inch loaf pan.
Mix together flours, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a medium mixing bowl. In a separate bowl, combine orange zest, melted butter, egg, orange juice, vanilla, and maple syrup. Mix until well blended. Stir in cranberries and nuts. Spread evenly in prepared loaf pan.
Bake for 55 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool on a rack for 15 minutes. Remove from pan; cool completely before slicing.
