  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Lightly grease a loaf pan.
  2. Make a flax egg. In a medium bowl, add flax meal and water. Let sit in the refrigerator for 10 minutes.
  3. Mix dry ingredients. In a large bowl, place flour, baking powder, cinnamon, baking soda, and salt. Stir until combined.
  4. Combine wet ingredients. When the flax eggs are done, add juice, sugar, oil, applesauce, milk, zest, and vanilla. Whisk to combine.
  5. Pour the wet ingredients into the large bowl of dry ingredients. Mix until just combined. Do not overmix. Fold in cranberries and walnuts (if using). Pour batter into loaf pan.
  6. Bake for 30 minutes at 400°F. Remove pan; reduce heat to 350°F. Cover pan with foil; bake for 15-20 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in the center of the loaf comes out clean.
  7. Remove from the oven; let it cool in the pan for 10-15 minutes before removing.
  8. Serve warm with cranberry sauce or maple syrup, if desired.
