paleo date & walnut bread

My favorite way to Breakfast is homemade breads and muffins. This Paleo Walnut Date bread is the perfect addition to any quick start to your day. I serve it with fresh fruit and hard boiled eggs and the kids are power ready for school!

Everytime my husband tastes one of my new creations, he says he can’t believe everyone doesn’t want to eat this way. Change is difficult always, but small shifts for maximum benefits are my favorite. This grain free, gluten free bread is a great start.

Every week, I choose a different baked good to make for breakfasts and snacks the kids can grab with ease. Date Walnut Bread will be at the top of the list for awhile but here are a few of my other favorites that are breakfast staples.

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl beat the oil, maple syrup, and eggs until thoroughly combined and fluffy.

  • In a separate bowl combine the almond flour, baking soda, and baking powder and cinnamon. Whisk until incorporated. Add the dry ingredients to the wet, being careful not to over-mix.

  • Add in walnuts and dates on low, just to mix them in gently.

  • Pour batter into glass loaf pan, sprayed with good quality cooking spray, you can also take it one step farther and line with a sheet of parchment.

  • Tip, I place a sheet of foil over the loaf pans while cooking. This prevents them from getting to brown.

  • Place in a 350 degree oven for 45-50 minutes, checking with a toothpick if center is cooked.

  • Remove and let COMPLETELY cool before cutting (I know this is hard!)


I recommend Honeyville Almond flour in the recipe above. This is an affiliate link. I have used many almond flours and this by far is the most superior. I see such a difference in my recipes and would never supstitute another option. It is on the pricey side, but so worth it!
