Nutty Date Sweetened Banana Bread

Image

Who doesn’t love Banana Bread? This classic sweet bread is delicious, especially when it has NO sugar. Yuuum.

Image

Mix up the bananas and eggs together.

Image

Then sift together the flour, salt, and baking soda.

Image

Add the banana/egg mixture to the flour mixture and stiiiir it up. Then add the walnuts (any nuts will work, or no nuts at all) Next, blend up 3/4 of a cup of dates in your food processor. I tried doing it with a hand blender, and it wasn’t strong enough. Soaking the dates for 2 hours before blending, or boiling for 5 minutes will help them to be softer, therefore blending easier! Stir everything together well and put in a buttered loaf pan 9×5 inches. Bake for 1 hour at 350F

Delish! I doubled the recipe, and it made 3 loaves, plus a mini loafImage

Let me know what you think! I’d love to hear YOUR feedback!
