Apple, Walnut & Date Loaf

How amazing does this Apple, Walnut & Date Loaf look by Chloe Moir Nutrition! It’s such a yummy winter recipe, and a great way to use up those extra apples in the fruit bowl.

 Apple, Walnut & Date Loaf


1/2 cup dates
1/4 cup coconut oil, melted
2 eggs 
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 Tbsp maple syrup
Juice of 1/2 lemon
1/4 cup coconut milk 
1 cup grated apple (about 2 apples)
1 cup ground almonds
1/4 cup tapioca flour
1/4 cup coconut four
1/2 cup walnuts
1 Tbsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp baking soda


2 Tbsp ground almonds
2 Tbsp crushed walnuts
1 Tbsp coconut sugar
2 Tbsp coconut oil


  1. Pre-heat the oven to 180 degrees fan bake.
  2. Place dates in a bowl, cover with boiling water. Stand for 10 minutes then pour into a strainer. Leave for 5 minutes so most of the water drips out of the dates.
  3. In a large bowl mash the dates with a fork or potato masher. Add the coconut oil, eggs, coconut milk, vanilla, maple syrup, lemon juice. Mix well.
  4. Add the dry ingredients and mix well.
  5. Line a loaf tin with baking paper and pour in the batter.
  6. To make the crumble topping, in a small bowl, add the crushed walnuts, ground almonds, coconut sugar and coconut oil. Pour this mixture over the top of the loaf.
  7. Cover the loaf with tin foil and bake for 20 minutes. Uncover, and bake for another 20 minutes.
  8. To check the cake is cooked through, insert a knife into the middle, the knife should come out clean. If there is still raw mixture on the knife then put the cake back in the oven for another 5 minutes.
  9. Leave to cool down before slicing.
