Updated: Apr 29, 2019

A traditionally sweet and nutty bread that makes a perfect snack or a delicious breakfast muffin. This recipe was revised from an old family recipe that was shared by Jeanne Schumacher. Thank you Jeanne!

Prep Time: 15 minutes Cook Time: 60 minutes

Yields: 1 loaf


2 cups pitted dates

1 1/2 cups water

1 cup plant based milk

1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar

1 teaspoon vanilla

2 cup whole wheat pastry flour

1 1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/4 teaspoon sea salt

3/4 cup chopped walnuts

3/4 cup raisins


  1. Preheat oven to 350° degrees.

  2. In a saucepan over medium heat, simmer the dates and water until dates become soft and begin to fall apart.

  3. Add milk, vinegar, vanilla and the date and water mixture to a blender. Blend until smooth and creamy.

  4. In a large bowl combine the flour, baking soda, salt, walnuts and raisins. Add the wet mixture from the blender and mix only until combined (do not over mix).

  5. Place into a parchment lined bread pan. Bake for 50-60 minutes.

Kim's Hints: You can easily make muffins with this batter but it will shorten the baking time significantly. It depends on the size of the muffin you choose, approximately 15-20 minutes.
