DAIRY-FREE Raisin-Date Walnut Breakfast Bread

Recently, my husband decided to purchase fresh dates because he remembered enjoying them at his grandmother’s house as a child, and thought he would like to try them again. It turns out that he isn’t really a fan of fresh dates on their own. I promised that I would do something with them so we could still enjoy them and they wouldn’t go to waste. This DAIRY-FREE Raisin-Date Walnut Breakfast Bread is what I came up with! DAIRY-FREE Raisin-Date Walnut Breakfast Bread www.managingyourblessings.com #dairyfree #breakfast
