Breakfast Date Bread.. On a stick

Share
My kids don’t like dates, but they had no problem eating this Date/Nut bread! Dates are a great source of fruit.  They have:
  • More antioxidants than apples, oranges, grapes, mangos, or cantaloupe.
  • They are a great source of fiber.
  • They are naturally fat-free, cholesterol free and sodium free.
  • They promote good digestion!!
breakfast for kids Since those are some great reasons to put dates in your kids diet, here is a great recipe!

DATE NUT BREAD RECIPE

  • 1 1/2 cup boiling water
  • 1 1/2 cup dates
Pour boiling water over dates and let sit for 10 minutes. Then add:
  • 2 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1 cup chopped pecans or walnuts.
In separate bowl:
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 TBL melted butter
Combine date/flour mixture with sugar mixture and stir just till everything is moistened.  If there is one thing I’ve learned in baking is not to over mix!  Pour batter into 1 well greased loaf pan. Bake at 350 for 50-60 minutes or until center is cooked. datebread Love bread like me?  Go here for more bread recipes!

We love dates– especially my son. I’m definitely trying this recipe. I feel like I’m baking way more now that I have a son, and most of the time healthy stuff… did that happen to you?

It turns out tough and heavy rather than light and fluffy. Maybe it’s because the gluten bonds get stronger and stronger the more you mix.

Hi Jennifer-
I actually can’t remember what I’ve done here and I”ll have to make it again, but I would err on the side of draining! Good luck!

I have come across your website through pinterest and I’m so happy that I have found this! My baby has quickly become toddler, and trying to find food she’ll eat that my husband will also eat has been a new challenge in this chapter of life. This date loaf is just one of the favourites (and it’s a great pick-me-up for me when I have skipped a meal because of nap, diaper explosion, laundry, dogs, or other mom things that come up). Thanks again!
