How to make it

  • In a large bowl (or stand mixer), combine almond milk and brown sugar.
  • Sprinkle the yeast overtop and let stand 5 minutes, until foamy.
  • Combine flours, nutmeg, sugar, orange zest, flaxseeds and salt in a medium bowl. Set aside.
  • To the foamed yeast mixture, add the zucchini and vanilla, stirring well.
  • Add 3 cups of the dry mixture to the bowl and begin mixing (on low speed), until the dry ingredients are incorporated.
  • Add in remaining dry mixture, and allow the mixer to begin kneading the dough.
  • Continue working the dough with the dough hook, slowly beating in margarine cubes one at a time. It should become very shiny and soft.
  • Continue kneading for 10 minutes.
  • Turn into an oiled bowl, cover and allow to rise 1 1/2 hours, until doubled in volume.
  • Lightly grease two loaf pans, set aside.
  • Punch down the dough, divide in half and roll one portion out into a rectangle on a (very) well-floured surface. Roll it out lengthwise as far as possible- The longer the dough, the more spirals you will get in the finished bread.
  • Beat together the almond butter and Earth Balance in a small bowl until very fluid.
  • Spread the rectangle with half the almond butter, leaving 1/2" on one long side clear.
  • Mix together the chocolate chips, cranberries, ground almonds and cinnamon, then sprinkle half evenly over the dough.
  • Starting with the long edge that is completely covered, roll up the dough as tightly as possible.
  • Arrange the log with the two ends next to each other (like a squashed horse shoe), then twist together.
  • Carefully fit the twist into one pan.
  • Repeat with the remaining half of the ingredients.
  • Cover and let rise 1 hour, until just about doubled.
  • Preheat oven to 350F.
  • Bake for 40 – 50 minutes, until golden and hollow sounding when tapped.
