Natural Dates are used as the main ingredient for energy snacks. It is because of the many nutritional benefits of dates. Date paste provides all of the same benefits and goodness but is much easier to use in recipes. We rolled our date energy snacks in cookies, coconut, sesame seeds, and cocoa powder, but you can get creative and use whatever ingredients you have on hand!

In our Date-sweetened Banana bread recipe, we are going to introduce a healthy and guilt-free banana bread that is date-sweetened, vegan, oil-free and gluten-free, but definitely not lacking in flavour or decadence! It is super moist, flavourful and jam-packed with only the good stuff.


  • + 1 banana to top, sliced it in half lengthwise (optional)
  • 1 cup pitted dates (or date paste)
  • ½ cup unsweetened non-dairy milk
  • 1 1/2–2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract (I used 2)
  • 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
  • 2 cups gluten-free oat flour
  • 1/2 cup crushed nuts (optional)
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 3 large ripe & spotty bananas, mashed (about 1 1/2 cups)
  • 2 flax eggs (2 tablespoons flaxseed meal + 6 tablespoons water)

Shop Date Paste


Step 1: Preheat oven to 350°F and line a 9×5″ bread pan with parchment paper or lightly coat it with oil.

Step 2: Mix the flaxseed meal with the water and stir well. Set aside to thicken, about 15 minutes.

Step 3: Add the oat flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, and nuts in a large bowl. Mix well until uniform and set aside.

Step 4: Add the dates, almond milk, vanilla extract, and apple cider vinegar. Process until smooth and well blended in a food processor, and then mix in the mashed banana and flax egg with a spoon until combined. Add the date and banana mixture to the dry mixture and stir until a batter forms.

Step 5: Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan, and if desired, top with the optional banana, cut side facing up. Put it into the oven and bake for 50-60 minutes.
