From the title, you may think we’re going to talk about dating nutty people, but no – that’s not what this is about. LOL!!!
It’s NATIONAL DATE NUT BREAD DAY!!! Doesn’t quick bread sound like a good snack to bake up and take to work or give to a neighbor? Baked goods are a wonderful last-minute gift to give.
Here’s a great recipe for diabetics – it’s only 4 ingredients (one of them is coffee – yay), easy and inexpensive to make!
Here’s another recipe that looks very good:
Dates do have natural sugars, but are rich in dietary fiber, which prevents LDL cholesterol absorption in the gut.
I wish we could put up some of the Christmas spirit in jars and open a jar of it every month. – Harlan Miller
Nuts are also rich in fiber as well as healthy fats. There are about 90 calories in a slice of Date Nut Bread, so it’s best to fight the temptation to eat the whole loaf in one day.
For centuries men have kept an appointment with Christmas. Christmas means fellowship, feasting, giving and receiving, a time of good cheer, home. – W.J. Ronald Tucker
May the spirit of Christmas bring you peace,
The gladness of Christmas give you hope,
The warmth of Christmas grant you love.

I wonder if this recipe would be better if we used Splenda in place of sugar – but it also has shortening in it – so… hmm. So much for healthy alternatives. We don’t use shortening in our family. The finished bread sure does look good though.
Well, I hope you can find a recipe that you like in this collection. You might want to try more than one of them. Date Nut Bread is one of the favorites in our family not only because of the health benefits, but because it reminds us of Christmases past. What is it about food and holidays? I don’t know – but I sure do like it! 😀
