I’m very quickly turning into a cookbook collector, because I just love sifting through the pages of a good cookbook and trying new recipes. I found a great recipe in “Family Favorites from the Homeschool Kitchen” cookbook for Date Nut Bread. I did a little bit of tweaking to the recipe to make it more healthy, and this is what immersed:
3/4 cup Chopped Almonds or other nuts
1 cup of Chopped Medjool Dates
1 1/2 tsp of Baking Soda
3 tbs of Coconut Oil (use butter or shortening if you don’t have it)
3/4 cup boiling water
Mix together with a fork and let sit for 20 minutes. In a separate bowl combine the following:
1 1/2 cups of whole wheat flour (freshly ground in my grinder)
2 eggs lightly beaten
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup of Agave Raw Sweetener (or 1 cup of regular sugar)
Once you have waited the 20 minutes, mix it all together and pour into a greased baking dish. Bake for about 40 minutes at 350.
