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
Preheat oven to 350° degrees.
In a saucepan over medium heat, simmer the dates and water until dates become soft and begin to fall apart.
Add milk, vinegar, vanilla and the date and water mixture to a blender. Blend until smooth and creamy.
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).
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.
