Breakfast Date Bread.. On a stick

Posted Nov 04 2010 8:47am

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!!

Since those are some great reasons to put dates in your kids diet, here is a great 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.
