Gluten Free & Allergy Friendly Date + Orange Bread

We love this slightly ‘grown-up’ approach on a date and orange bread! Rich flavors, soft texture, and of course allergy-friendly! This loaf is perfect anytime of year, especially when you’re searching for a quick, easy bake to bring to the table on the Holidays.

Makes: 1 loaf

Ingredients

1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt

3 cups dates
1 teaspoon allergy friendly vanilla extract

How-To

Preheat your oven to 360°F. Grease a loaf pan with your favorite oil.

Remove the pits from the dates and place them in a small saucepan. Cover with water and simmer for 20 minutes.

Drain the water from the dates and puree in a food processor- you should have about 1 1/2 cups of date puree.

Combine all the wet ingredients in a large bowl.

Combine all dry ingredients in a separate bowl.

Fold the dry ingredients into the wet.

Mix well.

Pour the mixture into your prepared pan. Bake for 45-50 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

Cool the loaf at room temperature.

Slice and serve!

 
Note: This recipe works great in any shape - muffins, cake pans, or loaves. Just adjust your baking time to account for the change in size!
