1/2 cup butter or vegan butter like Miyokos, softened 
2 eggs, beaten 
3 bananas, smushed into a pudding-like puree
1.5 cups almond flour (This recipe works well with gluten-free 1:1 and AP flour, as well)  
1 tsp baking soda 
1/2 tsp salt 
1/2 tsp vanilla 
Optional: 1/2 cup Just Date dark chocolate chips or walnuts

To begin, preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. Next, in a large mixing bowl, cream together the butter and date sugar until smooth and creamy. Be patient here. The butter and sugar will be crumbly at first but will become creamy and a light sand color after a minute or so.  Once the butter and date sugar are well combined, add the eggs and smushed bananas to the mixture, and stir until everything is evenly incorporated but still fluffy.

In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, and salt. Then, gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet mixture, stirring until the batter is smooth. Finally, add the vanilla extract to the batter and mix well.

Grease and flour a loaf baking pan, and then pour the batter into the prepared pan.

Bake at 350 degrees F for 55 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the bread comes out clean. Remove the bread from the oven and let it cool on a wire rack for at least 10-15 minutes before slicing and serving. Enjoy!
