Apple and Date Loaf

This apple and date loaf is so delicious and so easy. It uses many ingredients which you might have kicking around in the pantry!

Further Food Nutritionist Commentary:

Most 'low-sugar' or 'sugar-free' bread recipes tend to use store-bought applesauce as a sweetener, but this loaf uses a fresh, homemade apple puree. Anytime you can make your own ingredients from scratch, I say go for it! The less processed your food is, the better you will feel about your creations and your body will probably notice as well. If you want to avoid any added sugar, try replacing the coconut sugar with more apple puree, in a 1:1 ratio.
