Date Cardamom and Banana Bread

Recipes Ingredients

  • ½ cup Vegetable oil or any neutral oil
  • 1 ¼ cups All-purpose flour
  • ¾ cup Granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp Baking powder
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • ½ tsp Baking soda
  • ½ tsp Ziyad Brand Ground Cardamom
  • ½ cup Walnuts
  • ½ cup Oats
  • ¾ cup Ziyad Brand Medjool Dates (Chopped)
  • ¾ cup or Sultan Brand Medjool Dates (Chopped)
  • 2 Large eggs
  • ½ cup Plain yogurt
  • 1 tsp Vanilla extract
  • 1 cup Mashed banana (About 3 ripe bananas)


Step 1

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly butter or add parchment paper to one 9-by-5-inch loaf pan or three 6-by-3-inch mini loaf pans.

Step 2

Whisk the flour, oats, baking powder, salt, baking soda, and cardamom in a large bowl. Add the chopped dates and walnuts.

Step 3

Whisk the wet ingredients: add sugar, eggs, oil, yogurt, and vanilla in a medium bowl or in your mixer. Stir in the mashed banana. Fold the banana mixture into the flour mixture until just combined.

Step 4

Spread the batter in the prepared pan(s). Bake until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, about 55 minutes for a standard loaf or 35 to 40 minutes for mini loaves. Cool 30 minutes in the pan on a rack, then turn out onto the rack to cool completely.
