Autumn is here and this is the kind of thing I love with a cup of coffee, not massively sweet and with some more complex flavours thanks to the dates and mixed spice. I think the whole family will like this and it is really easy to make.
Date & Oat Loaf
200g wholemeal flour
2tsp mixed spice
1tsp bread soda
1 loaf tin
Oven at 160C
Add the dates and water to the pot and bring to the boil, then simmer very gently until the dates are soft. Blend with a stick blender until it forms a paste.
Beat the butter and honey together until light, add in the eggs and buttermilk and beat well.
Fold in the flour, spice and bread soda.
Pour into a greased lined loaf tin and bake for 50 minutes until a skewer comes out clear.
Leave for a few minutes then remove to cool fully.

Grainne, have tried quite a few at this stage of your recipes from your book MoveTrainNourish and have found them all not complicated, very tasty and healthy. Just made your breakfast flapjacks, they are delicious…Thank you for a great book…Marian
