Orange and Date Loaf

Instead of just the juice of oranges, this cake contains two WHOLE oranges making it a high fibre and nutrient packed snack for kids. The dates add sweetness and the almond meal adds an omega-3, calcium, and protein boost. A perfect pre-sport snack for school lunch boxes.

Orange and Date Loaf
1 1/2 cups SR flour
1 cup almond meal
150g dates, chopped
1 tsp cinnamon
2 eggs, lightly beaten
2 large oranges, peeled
2-3 tbsp firmly packed brown sugar

  2. Use food processor to puree 2 oranges. This should amount to approx. 2 cups of orange puree.

  5. Pour wet ingredients into the flour mix and fold through until combined
  6. Pour mixture into the loaf tin.
  7. Sprinkle top with granulated brown sugar (optional)
