Sweet dates and crunchy walnuts make this einkorn quick bread deliciously different. It's easy to make and great for breakfast or as a healthy snack. To make your own date paste, simply soak 200 grams of pitted dates in water or tea overnight, drain and process until completely smooth.

Dry IngredientsWet Ingredients
  • 200 g Einkorn berries, ground into flour
  • 50 g Walnuts, ground into flour
  • 2 tsp Baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp Cinnamon powder
  • 1 tsp Ginger powder
  • Large pinch of sea salt
  • 50 g Walnut halves for topping
  • 3 Medium eggs, at room-temperature
  • 250 g Date paste
  • 60 g Kefir
  • 60 g Flaxseed oil
  • 20 g Roasted sesame seed oil
  • 1 tbsp Maple syrup
  1. Preheat the oven to 160C/320F. Grease a standard-size loaf pan and line the bottom with a piece of parchment paper and set aside.
  2. In a mixing bowl, combine einkorn flour, walnut flour, baking soda, spices and salt. Whisk until well combined.
  3. In another large bowl, combine the eggs, date paste, kefir, flaxseed oil, sesame oil, and maple syrup. Whisk vigorously until well combined, then add in the flour mixture and stir with a wooden spoon until completely incorporated.
  4. Spread the batter to the prepared loaf pan and top with walnut halves. Bake for 55 to 60 minutes until the top is nicely golden brown and a skewer inserted in the center comes out clean. Allow the loaf to cool in the pan for 5 minutes before turning out onto a wire rack to cool completely.

I've had date nut bread / bars / loaves on my mind lately so this is perfect. Those thick slices have my mouth watering this morning. What do you recommend as a substitute for the Einkorn berries if we can't find them? Beautiful clicks Angie and a beautiful loaf!

Oh my goodness, Angie! This loaf is definitely screaming my name! I absolutely love dates and walnuts, so combining them into a loaf is genius! PLUS this carb-tastic beauty is refined sugar free!? YES PLEASE! Cheers, friend!

There are lots of dates on sale now in the stores. Just the right time to make this walnut date loaf. A piece of walnut date loaf and a cup of coffee will be great.

Juliana 11/5/17 19:19

Nice loaf Angie, and the idea of using date paste as the sweet component is just amazing.

This is STUNNING Angie!! Love the gorgeous nuts throughout the loaf with the date paste too!

Choclette Blogger 15/5/17 11:33

Date and walnut bread was one of the first cakes I ever made. I would have used wholemeal flour, but I think I prefer your version with ground walnuts and date paste. Fantastic. Good to see you using kefir :)

Angie Schneider 15/5/17 12:10

@Tricia Buice Spelt would be just as great, Tricia.

Supriya Kutty 15/5/17 13:48

wow.. This is awesome and Yummy. I'll soon try this.

Veronica Ng 15/5/17 15:32

This is definitely a very interesting and unusual cake (at least to me). Would the sesame oil fragrance be overpowering in the cake? Thank you for introducing such an awesome cake.

Hema 15/5/17 19:51

Wow, the loaf looks so good, such delicious ingredients and I would love to try out sesame oil in baking..

norma chang 15/5/17 23:58

Walnuts and dates are such a fabulous combo. Put them in bread and I am sold!

Emma Ferguson 16/5/17 07:09

Another beautiful loaf Angie, that texture looks perfect.

Cook With Manali 16/5/17 11:11

What a pretty loaf, this would be perfect with chai! yum!

grace 16/5/17 14:02

i love walnuts in breads! what great ingredients. i haven't baked with kefir, but i like the looks of what it helps produce!

Angie Schneider 16/5/17 15:33

@Veronica Ng I actually was planning to use walnut oil, but didn't realize that I didn't have any left. That's why I used sesame oil and I didn't find it overpowering, but you can use cold pressed sesame seed oil which is not toasted and not as aromatic as toasted version.

Marcelle @ A Little Fish in the Kitchen 16/5/17 16:14

Gorgeous quick bread, Angie! Love all those warm spices. I would love to have some for breakfast soon! :)

GiGi Eats Celebrities 16/5/17 17:48

SUGAR FREE FOR THE FRIGGIN' WIN! You know me! I love sugar-free everything cause in my PERSONAL opinion sugar is the devil and ... My body can't actually process it! And you know what? I am actually THANKFUL for that LOL!

Kitchen Riffs 17/5/17 02:07

Wow, such a great looking loaf. Full of goodness, including loads of flavor. Good stuff -- thanks.

Adina 17/5/17 09:17

Such a pretty loaf! Walnuts and ginger is always a good combo ;)

Ashika | Gardening Foodie 23/5/17 21:23

Looks really delicious, the dates and walnuts are such a great combination. Love it!!

My Little Space 24/5/17 12:06

Angie, I can see that you've stopped using common white flour for a very long time. I wish I can find better quality flour here. But always too expensive to purchase them. The texture looks so good. Very fine crumb!
Dumpling festival is just at the corner. Hope you'll have a great time chatting with your family. >o<
Blessings, Kristy

Olga Riofrio 24/5/17 14:21

Wow this looks delicious.


Anu - My Ginger Garlic Kitchen 24/5/17 20:08
