How to Make my Delicious Date Bread

If you love dates as much as I do… then get your flour ready because I’m going to teach you how to make date bread that is so easy yet so rich in flavour and texture. This is bread you will definitely not find on your supermarket shelves!

I love using dates in recipes and smoothies – it’s a great energy booster, increases iron, rich in various nutrients, fiber and antioxidants.

This recipe is pretty much monkey proof, it doesn’t matter if you’ve never baked before – you can definitely do this! No machinery is needed and no kneading required… if I can do it, YOU can!!
