Paleo Date Walnut Bread

This is not your typical Date Walnut Bread, this is Paleo Date Walnut Bread. This bread is purely fruit sweetened, and has no honey, maple syrup, agave or other processed sweeteners. Because of this, the bread is not as sweet, or dessert-like as other breads of mine such as my Paleo Chocolate Zucchini Bread.

During the last year, I’ve worked on lowering the amount of sweeteners in my recipes, and this bread is a prime example of that.

This gluten-free, grain-free bread is heavier and more bread-like than my dessert breads which are light, fluffy, and cake-like. Paleo Date Walnut Bread is perfect with a side of eggs for a paleo breakfast. With super food ingredients including almond flour and walnuts, this naturally sweetened paleo bread is the perfect paleo treat.

    • Margot, if you click the link, i.e., the highlighted words that say “mini loaf pan” you will be given that info :-)

    • Since she didn’t actually answer your question and points you to the amazon referral link…

      It’s 5-3/4″ x 3-1/4″ x 2-1/4″ (146.05 mm x 82 mm x 57 mm)

  1. I made this again for the first time in years and it was just as simple and satisfying as I remember it. Thanks for creating an enduring favourite!

  2. Have already done it twice this week and its wonderful, really tasty. Substituted almond flour for chestnut flour since almonds are in my grey area of food intolerances and the chestnut makes it a little sweeter than it probably would be with almond. Definately a win. Thanks Elana
