Make It Monday: Almost Sugar-Free Date Loaf (quick and healthy!)


We have fallen in love with this quick, healthy, keep-'em-full date loaf! We've been playing around with the make up of this basic loaf all week and this is what we've arrived at (it's the almond that gets me - love it, do you?). As you can see, it is so moist and delicious with or without a light spread of cream cheese. You can make it fast in the morning and pack it for the beach or pool for an almost sugar-free boost of protein. 

Ingredients:

  • olive oil or coconut oil spray (to coat the bottom of your loaf tin or muffin pan)
  • 2 egg whites
  • 1 cup self raising flour
  • 1/4 cup skim milk
  • 2 to 3 Tbls chopped dates
  • 2 Tbls brown sugar
  • 1 tsp almond extract
  • 2 Tbls cottage cheese
This is SO easy! Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray and lightly flour 2 small loaf pans (as pictured below) or 4-6 holes of a muffin pan with the cooking oil.
Whisk together the egg whites, flour, milk, dates, sugar, and cottage cheese. Pour in tins and bake for 20 minutes until brown. That's it! No leftovers, I promise!



My husband is crazy about this - an easy win for Father's Day!
