Introduction

Lightly sweetened with fruit, this quick bread is tasty on its own, topped with fresh fruit, or spread with a little nut butter or jam. For best results, buy whole pitted dates and chop them yourself. The pre-chopped ones often have added sugar and preservatives.

Ingredients

    2 large eggs
    2 ripe bananas, mashed
    1/3 cup skim milk
    1 tbsp vanilla extract
    1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
    1 tbsp vegetable oil
    1 cup unbleached all-purpose flour
    3/4 cup whole wheat flour
    2 tsp baking powder
    1/2 tsp baking soda
    1/2 tsp salt
    3/4 cup pitted dates, finely chopped
    1/3 cup sliced almonds


Tips

The batter should be rather thick, but if it seems too dry, add milk or applesauce, one tablespoon at a time, until desired consistency is reached.


Directions

Heat oven to 325 degrees. Lightly oil a 9"x5"x3" loaf pan, or spray with cooking spray. Combine the first six (moist) ingredients, mixing with a fork until fairly smooth. In another bowl, combine the next 5 (dry) ingredients and stir to mix well. Add the moist ingredients to the dry. Stir until blended into a thick batter. Fold in the dates and almonds to distribute evenly through the batter. Turn into prepared loaf pan and bake at 325 degrees 55 to 60 minutes, until lightly browned and a toothpick inserted in the center of the loaf comes out clean. Cool 10 minutes in the pan before turning out onto a wire rack. For best slicing, wait until loaf is completely cooled before cutting.

Serving Size: makes one 9"x5"x3" loaf; 16 1/2" slices
