2 cups chopped dates
1 cup unsweetened coconut
1 cup orange or apple juice
1 medium-size banana
1/3 cup flaxseeds, brown or golden
2/3 cup chopped nuts
½ teaspoon salt
1 cup organic whole wheat flour
Mash the banana.
Grind the flaxseeds to a powder in a blender or coffee grinder.
Stir all ingredients together mixing the flour in last.
Spray a baking dish (choose a 1 to 1 ½ pound bread pan, or other baking dish which holds at least four cups) with a spray-on oil like PAM. Pack the batter into the baking dish and bake at 350 degrees for 50 minutes.
Let the cake cool 10 minutes then run a knife around edges to loosen and invert onto a cooling rack. The cake will slice best if allowed to cool or chill in the refrigerator first. (It can be sliced when warm but may crumble a little.) The dates and flour congeal and stick together during cooling which makes a firm slice that can be cut quite thin. Serve at room temperature or chilled.
