Mom's Date Nut Bread Made Healthy

Submitted by: ENID37

Introduction

I had some dates leftover from another recipe, so I modified the date nut bread recipe my mom made when i was a kid. Next time, I might experiment with leaving out the added sugar entirely and just rely on the sweetness from the dates and raisins. PS--It's vegan, too!
