Oh my goodness, try this bread!! It's addictive. You don't notice how healthy it is (with no oil or butter), you just want to keep eating! I have made the raisin version, too, and it is also good. But try the date loaf first - it's really delicious.

Easy to make, great to eat and cheap! I made this without having to buy but one ingredient. The nuts are interchangeable, somewhat, as I used pecans. This is one recipe that will be used again and again.
