This easy vegan date nut cake is moist, fluffy, and packed with chewy dates and crunchy pecans and walnuts! So simple to make and the perfect sweet treat to bring to a potluck or bake sale. Gluten-free option.
Tired of making banana bread over and over again? Try this Vegan Date and Nut Cake instead. It’s moist yet light and fluffy and packed with dates and nuts. You could probably get away with calling this a vegan date and nut bread, or snack cake.
I love this date cake with a mix of pecans or walnuts and pistachios but you can use any nut you have in your baking pantry – or a mix of nuts and seeds. Think hazelnuts, pistachios, almonds, pumpkin seeds – anything you want! The batter is so wonderfully moist thanks to the addition of almond flour. I used AP flour for this and while I did not design this to be a gluten-free cake, you could totally change this by using a gluten-free flour mix of oat flour, almond flour, and potato starch.
This is one of those easy cake recipes you can make whenever there is a “cake emergency” – meaning your kids let you know they need to bring something to school the next day. Or you have spontaneous visitors and want to whip up something sweet and easy. As this cake travels really well, you can also bring it to any potluck or picnic. Everyone will love it so keep the recipe ready!
