Mocha Date Banana Bread

Lets make banana bread! We have been busy house hunting and now have an accepted bid! Wait, that means we have to pack and move…..

Mocha Date Banana Bread

1 c snipped dates
1/2 c hot coffee

Cover dates with the coffee, stir once or twice while coffee cools. (I poured the coffee over the dates, let sit 10 minutes, stirred again and left for work.)

In a medium bowl combine and set aside:

1 c flour
1 c whole wheat flour – I used spelt flour
1 T cocoa
1 t baking soda
1 t salt

In a large bowl, beat together:

1/4 c oil
1/3 c sugar
1/3 c brown sugar
2 eggs

then add and stir well:

3 mashed bananas (about 1 c)

1 c chopped walnuts

Stir dry ingredients, add sugar oil mixture, mashed bananas and the date mixture. Do not over mix. Pour into a prepared 9X5 loaf pan. Add chopped nut to the top of the loaf.

Bake 55 – 60 minutes or tests done.
