Banana & date loaf with vanilla cream cheese


45 mins

15 mins

30 mins


2 Medium ripe bananas, mashed with a fork

10g Dates, pitted and chopped

Boiled water

1 tsp Vegetable oil

½ tsp Vanilla extract

20g SR flour

20g Oats

¼ tsp Baking powder

50g Crème fraîche

Cinnamon to taste


Begin by soaking the dates in a bowl filled with boiled water, letting them sit for about 5 minutes. Drain the water afterwards.

Next, transfer the soaked dates into a food processor, and blend them with oil until smooth.

In a separate large bowl, combine the mashed banana with the date mixture. Then, add in the vanilla extract, flour, oats, and baking powder. Stir well until you achieve a thick batter consistency.

Preheat your oven to 180°C. Grease a loaf tin and pour the batter into it.

Bake the mixture in the preheated oven for approximately 20-30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.

While the loaf is baking, prepare the cinnamon crème fraîche by mixing together the crème fraîche and cinnamon in a small bowl.

Once the loaf is baked through, allow it to cool for a bit. Then, slice it into serving portions.

Serve the slices of the loaf alongside dollops of the cinnamon crème fraîche.

Enjoy your delicious date and banana loaf with a delightful touch of cinnamon crème fraîche!
