I was so pleased with how this bread turned out, it is wonderful! Flavorful, moist and being made with whole grains and all fruit, it is perfect as a quick meal for those times when you are "on the go".
|Whole Grain All Fruit Sweetened Banana Date Bread|
Plus a slice of this whole grain fruit bread would be perfect for those camping trips we enjoy. Or something I hope to start doing as soon as possible, pack a thermos of coffee, a light breakfast and take a lovely morning walk on the beach or by the bay.
Nutritional bonus, this bread has no refined sugar.
It is all fruit and whole grain.
Not too sweet, healthy and it tastes wonderful, what is not to like?
2 c whole wheat flour - we use Spelt flour, pastry grind
1 t salt
1 t soda
1 t cinnamon - if desire
2 large or 3 smaller bananas
2 c whole pitted dates
1/3 c oil
1/3 c water
1 T vanilla
broken pieces of walnuts for the top of the loaf
In a large bowl, combine the flour, salt, soda, and cinnamon if using. Set aside.
In a food processor, combine the dates, bananas, eggs, and oil. Process until smooth, mixture will be thick.
Pour the banana mixture over the flour mixture, add water and vanilla. Fold ingredients together until no dry pockets remain, do not overmix.
Place in a 9X5 prepared loaf pan, scatter walnuts over the top. Bake 50-60 minutes or until done in your oven. Let cool in the pan 15 minutes, turn our to cool completely.
Wrap and store overnight (all quick bread improves with a 24-hour resting period), slice and serve.
