    What a beautiful picture! The recipe sounds perfect! I love all the walnuts in it. I’m thinking, “Surely I can make this today.” Better yet, I’m going to let it nearly stand alone on New Year’s. It looks like it can hold it’s own beautifully. Merry Christmas, Amy, to you and your family.

    Sounds delicious – especially with the choice of flours. What does yacon syrup taste like? I have never had it!

    @Alta, Yacon syrup is low glycemic – supposedly lower than agave. It’s not good as a general substitute because it has a distinct flavor – earthy, rich. The best way I can describe it is that it has the concentrated flavor of sweet potatoes. Using it with spices and other rich flavors works well. It’s also supposed to be full of antioxidents.

    I get mine from iHerb.com. They have the best price and a great quality. There’s a code in my sidebar for $5 off your first order.

    That is such a beautiful loaf of bread, Amy! I know your reader who made the request will really appreciate it, and others will, too.

    I like the idea of creating your own holiday traditions. That’s something we’ve had “issues” with forever. Some families are more set on certain days and times than others. Heading to Key West on Christmas night certainly helps mitigate those issues. ;-) LOL

    Have a very merry Christmas!

    There’s nothing like cranberry and walnut in quick bread or muffins. I just made some gluten free cranberry ginger muffins (http://iamglutenfree.blogspot.com/2009/12/cranberry-ginger-muffins-gluten-free.html) and posted about it recently. I love your use of alternative sweeteners and am going to give them a try. Thanks for the yacon syrup tip – I’m going to go right now and order it!

    Amy, love your blog! I have recently started a recipe blog for parrot-friendly recipes that people will also enjoy so your gluten & sugar-free recipes are perfect and I hope you’ll allow me to cross-post them to my blog?? I also wonder about yacon syrup and if I can find it locally rather than online… or if there is a suitable substitute?

    @Leslie, I’m so glad you like my blog. :) Yacon – I buy it from iherb.com. I’ve also seen it at Whole Foods. Since it’s a thick liquid sweetener, you can use honey, agave, or any other thick liquid sweetener in it’s place.

    About cross-posting – can you please explain what you mean by that?

    Congrats on the new blog! I’m an animal lover, too.

    Hugs,
    Amy

    I don’t have diabetes but it runs on both sides of my family.
    It’s available by import and is beginning to show up on the shelves in some health food stores in the U.

    s the first trademark smoothie appeared as a dairy free alternative to popular ice cream based drinks of the era.
