Date nut bread is delicious and pretty easy to bake, but there are other fun alternatives worth trying.
I made this Banana Date Nut Muffin recipe from Taste of Home, which was not too sweet and great for breakfast.
I could have done with a little less oats than what the recipe called for—1/2 cup—but the outcome was still delicious.
By contrast, I had no qualms with the amount of applesauce listed in the recipe. Only 1/3 cup was needed, which left over enough for a mid-baking snack.
The result was 12 very moist banana nut date muffins. They didn’t have the conventional banana bread flavor, which may have been canceled out a little by the oats. But they’re still delicious, especially with a glass of milk or a cup of tea or coffee. I also had one post-workout with a banana protein shake. Yum.
Looking for something sweeter? Kroger’s Apple Date Nut Loaf recipe is perfect.
I made it for a friend who’s pregnant and has had some issues with morning sickness. She gobbled up two slices of the apple date nut bread before my eyes. I was glad to see her enjoy the tasty treat. But let’s be honest, I’m trying to score points early with the baby. *smile*
