What is "Healthified"?
We've replaced ingredients with great-tasting alternatives to create better-for-you recipes that are just as yummy as the originals.
Success
Cranberries can get away from you and roll right off the cutting board if you try to chop too many at once. Chop just a small handful at a time for more control.
Do-Ahead
This recipe makes two loaves—one for now and one to wrap tightly and store in the freezer for later.
