Brownie Date Nut Bread with Strawberry Butter

Yield: 1 1/2 Lbs. loaf

Serving Size: 1 inch slice

Brownie Date Nut Bread with Strawberry Butter

This Brownie Date loaf will be more bread like than cake. It's very dense and filling. The Strawberry Butter goes well with a slice fresh from the bread maker and lightens up the dessert with it's tang and fluffy texture in contrast to the dense heavy bread. I sliced up my loaf and wrapped individual pieces to take as a mid day snack. Not overly sweet and it's relatively sugar free with the Stevia.

What you will need for this recipe:

  • 1/2 Cup Stevia Baking Blend (I used NuNaturals Fiber Blend brand)
  • 1/2 Cup High Quality Cocoa Powder
  • 1 1/4 Cup Organic Whole Wheat Flour
  • 1 Cup Chopped Dates soaked in 1 Cup Boiling Water (reserve soak water)
  • 1/2 Cup Chopped Walnuts
  • 3 Tbs. Ground Flax Seed mixed with 6 Tbs. Water)
  • 1/2 tsp. Sea Salt
  • 1/2 tsp. Cinnamon
  • 2 tsp. Baking Powder
  • 1/2 tsp. Vanilla Extract

Instructions

Soak chopped dates in boiling water.

Add ingredients to bread maker in this order:

Vanilla, Flax w/water, Dates w/ soak water, Sea Salt, Cinnamon, Walnuts, Stevia, Baking Powder, Cocoa, Whole Wheat Flour.

Set Bread Maker to 'Sweet Bread' setting for a 1 1/2 lbs. loaf.

For the Strawberry Butter:

Blend 5-6 Fresh Cleaned Ripe Strawberries with 4-5 oz. of Vegan Vegetable Spread (like Earth Ballance brand) and 1/4 cup Agave or Maple Syrup.

Store in the fridge in a sealed container or freeze.

      Thanks Annie. It looks a little better when it warms some too. I kept it chilled for the pics but warmed it some for gobbling it up! It looks like a lot more butter here than it really was too, the strawberries whip up with the butter so it’s not REALLY that much fat. Thanks for stopping by :)

      Thanks so much Keely! It really just tastes like Strawberry jam with butter but much fancier in it’s presentation… Pretty sure any berry will do, thanks for your comment :)

    That looks awesome! I love how moist and dense that brownie date bread looks. Cheers for another fantastic recipe to add to my collection :)

      Very dense. It’s more like fruit cake without the sugar. The dates were actually not really detectable, mostly the cocoa flavor and walnuts. I think the dates really hold everything else together which make it Very dense yes! Be sure to let us know how it works for you if you try it, especially if you bake it instead of using a bread maker. :)

        I don’t own a bread maker so baking is my only option, however, in summer, we bake in the covered bbq so this could be interesting! ;)
