Gluten Free (Sugar Free*) Date Bread

Dry:

•1 1/3 cups almond flour

•1/3 cup flaxseed flour

• 1/2 cup date paste

•1 tsp baking powder

•1/2 tsp baking soda

•1/2 tsp cream of tartar

•1/4 tsp vanilla

•1/2 tsp stevia (optional – add 2 tbsp molasses or sorghum)

•2 tsp ground cinnamon

•1/2 tsp sea salt

•1/2 tsp active dry yeast (add 1 tsp warm water and let stand 3-5 minutes  before adding to the mix)

Wet:

•3 whole eggs

•1/4 cup softened butter or butter ghee

•1/2 cup buttermilk (or yogurt/milk or cream)

Add after mixing above:

•3/4 cup raisins

•1/2 cup chopped nuts – pecans, walnuts or almonds.

 

Mix dry ingredients with a fork or whisk.  In a separate bowl, beat (until well whipped), the wet ingredients.  Combine dry and wet and mix with a hand mixer until well blended.  Pour into a 8 1/2 by 4 1/2 inch loaf pan heavily coated with ghee.

Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 40 minutes.  Test middle with a toothpick until it comes out clean.  Take out, cook 2 minutes and then invert on a wire rack.

Invert this on a cutting board and serve slices while warm with butter and preserves.

Best if eaten with a cup of fresh brewed coffee.

* This recipe adds optional molasses and does have sugars from dates and raisins.  It is completely gluten free and delicious.
