- ¼ cup (30g) ground almonds
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 cup (150g) Medjool dates, pitted and finely chopped
- ¼ cup (30g) granola to sprinkle on top (optional, but may not be suitable if baby is under 12 months if it contains honey – alternatively you could make your own from the recipe at the start of the Sweet Treats section)

- Bake your loaf in the oven for 40 minutes, or until golden brown and a knife comes out clean from the centre to show that it is cooked through
