Cranberry Yogurt Bread

I’m a sucker for a delicious quick bread in the morning.  My kids gobble them up, too!  I had some leftover cranberry sauce from Thanksgiving and wanted to give it a swirl (literally) in my yogurt bread recipe.  The result?  Deliciousness!  Prep this one in the minutes and let your oven do all of the work.  Easily made gluten free by just substituting the flour.⁣
