Featured Product: Premium Silicone Loaf Pan with Steel Frame


  • 1 cup pitted dates, chopped
  • 1 cup boiling water
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 1/4 cups plain flour
  • 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 3/4 cup traditional rolled oats
  • 1 1/4 cups walnuts, chopped
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • Light cream cheese, to serve

Step 1

Preheat oven to 180°C. Grease a 6.5cm deep, 9 cm x 19 cm loaf pan and line it with baking paper, letting 2 inches overhanging at both long ends.

Step 2

Put the dates in a heatproof bowl and pour over boiling water with maple syrup. Stand for 15 minutes.

Step 3

In a mixing bowl, sift flour and bicarbonate of soda. Add in oats, walnuts, sugar, and then stir until combined with the date mixture.

Step 4

Spoon the mixture into the prepared pan and smooth out any bumps or sharp edges. Bake for 50-55 minutes, until a skewer inserted into the center, comes out clean. Let cool about 5 minutes before lifting the loaf onto a wire rack to finish slicing up this delicious dessert with some cream cheese drizzled over the top if desired.
