Whole Grain All Fruit Banana Date Bread

Welcome to Our Sunday Café, we are pleased you stopped by for a visit. Today we are offering another delicious recipe from our kitchen. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did…

I was so pleased with how this bread turned out, it is wonderful! Flavorful, moist and is made with whole grains and all fruit, it is perfect as a quick meal for those times when you are "on the go".

A slice of bread is oftentimes much easier (cleaner maybe?) to eat than a muffin. Such as, on the way, to somewhere, like work. Good for me or not, I eat my breakfast as I commute to work. A tidy slice of bread is much easier to eat than a fluffy muffin.

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?

Healthy fruit only quick bread, ready to slice and eat.

by the seat of my pants!
350-degree oven

2 c whole wheat flour - we use Spelt flour, pastry grind
1 t salt
1 t soda
1 t cinnamon - if desired

2 large or 3 smaller bananas
2 c whole pitted dates
1/3 c oil
2 eggs

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.

Whole foods made into a quick bread.

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.

Whole grain, fruit sweetened, golden brown walnuts on top quick bread.

Bake 45 to 50 minutes or until tests done in your oven. 

Waiting 24 hours improves the texture of all quick breads.

Wrap and store overnight (all quick bread improves with a 24-hour resting period), slice and serve.

Whole Grain Fruit Sweetened Quick Bread, tastes great and slices beautifully.
