Tired of the holidays yet? Me neither! Tired of leftovers? Um, yeah – I think I’m ready to move on from all the holiday eats, but first I want to share these cranberry pie bites with you. You see, these are made with leftover cranberry sauce from our Christmas dinner. I don’t know how I’ve gone this long without making these – it never occurred to me that the same cranberry sauce we serve with our turkey can be baked up in pie form. How did I not figure this out sooner?
I love making this gluten-free chia soda bread because it is simple to prepare, healthy, dairy-free and there is no yeast or kneading. I have added chia seeds because they are a good source of omega-3 fatty acids, fiber, antioxidants, iron, and calcium, and 1-ounce, serving of chia seeds also contains 5.6 grams of protein. Soda bread is best when eaten fresh, but toasting a slice or making garlic bread the next day makes this bread a winner!
