How to make it

  • Preheat the oven to 350F. Grease and flour a 9×5 inch loaf pan.
  • In a large bowl, combine the dates and water. Let stand 15-20 minutes.
  • Mix in the banana, milk, oil, vanilla and sugar (if using) until well blended (I found it best to use a potato masher).
  • Combine the flours, baking soda, baking powder, spice and salt.
  • Stir into the wet mixture until just blended, then mix in the nuts.
  • Pour into the prepared pan, filling no more than 2/3 full (I got 4 medium muffins as well as the loaf).
  • Bake 50 minutes (20 minutes for muffins), or until a wooden pick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  • Cool in pan(s) 20 minutes before turning out onto a wire rack and cooling completely.
