Hey there! Any chance you're in the mood for some warm bread? Yes that's a rhetorical question.
Today's recipe comes from Food 52's Vegan cookbook by Gena Hamshaw. I found this under a pile of fabric in my bookcase, and probably haven't looked at it since I was vegan many years ago. Upon further inspection, I found a handful of new recipes to test over the next few weeks and honestly haven't put it down since. I've made soups, salads, breads, and a few other things that have quickly made it into my weekly rotation. But this bread. Wow. I've made this one at least 5 times now and haven't shut up about it.
I think the title may throw some people off, but I'm a big date and nut fan. The way I described this was like a banana bread without bananas...so just cinnamon-y, sweet, light and really good chunks from the nuts. No joke I think I've had this every day for 3 weeks.
The best part is that I've also made different variations and they've all been great! I've added bananas and applesauce, chocolate chips... but most often I'll just throw in a handful of trail mix. You can do pretty much anything.
I keep this wrapped in plastic wrap and in the fridge for up to 5 days. If it lasts that long.
