Delicious Gluten-Free Date Nut Bread Recipe

What you’ll need:

  • 1 cup pitted dates, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 cup hot water
  • 1 ¾ cups gluten-free flour blend 
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup chopped nuts (walnuts, pecans, or almonds work well)
  • ½ cup of honey, maple syrup, or coconut sugar
  • 1 large organic egg, beaten
  • 2 tablespoons melted coconut oil
  • 1 teaspoon organic vanilla extract

How to make it: 

  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F. Grease and flour a standard loaf pan with a gluten-free flour blend or line it with parchment paper for easy removal.
  2. In a bowl, combine the chopped dates and baking soda. Pour the hot water over the dates and let them soak for about 15 minutes. This softens the dates and makes them easier to incorporate into the batter.
  3. In a separate bowl, whisk together the gluten-free flour blend, baking powder, and salt. Stir in the chopped nuts.
  4. In another bowl, whisk together the beaten egg, sweet ingredient, oil, and vanilla extract until well combined.
  5. Gradually add the date mixture to the wet ingredients, stirring until everything is nicely incorporated.
  6. Slowly add the dry ingredient mixture to the wet ingredients, stirring gently until no streaks of flour remain. Be careful not to overmix. 
  7. Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan. Smooth the top with a spatula. Bake in the preheated oven for about 45-50 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  8. Allow the date nut bread to cool in the pan for about 10 minutes, then carefully transfer it to a wire rack to cool completely.
  9. Once cooled, slice the bread into your desired portions and enjoy! It’s delicious on its own or spread with a bit of butter or cream cheese.
