Banana date flax loaf

I had a bucket of dates in the cupboard screaming to be used, and I wanted to make something that would be around for a couple of days just in case the baby decides to make an appearance. Easy for the family to have a snack.

1 1/2 cups unbleached flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tbsp ground flax seed
1/4 cup organic cane sugar

3 very ripe bananas-mashed
2 tbsp ground flax seed mixed with 6 tbsp boiling water
1/2 cup soy milk
1 tsp apple cider vinegar
1/2 cup chopped dates
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 cup sunflower oil

In 2 medium sized bowls mix dry ingrigents together, and wet together
Pour wet into dry and mix until combined
Pour into a greased loaf pan, and bake @ 350 for 1 hour or until done.


  1. I love banana bread, never even thought of adding dates. Sounds good!

  2. I know..I never add dates to much stuff. I have been reading a few other vegan blogs that use dates in smoothies! I like the idea that it cuts out a lot of the sugar that recipes usually have.

  3. I love love love banana bread, and your picture is beautiful:)

  4. This bread looks so good! I like the dates in them!

  5. My dates scream at me from the cupboard too. But I use them a lot so they're always in there :)

    This bread looks awesome.
