  5. Add the wet ingredients and stir until combined with no lumps.
  6. Transfer to a well-greased bundt pan (10 cup capacity). Smooth the top with a spatula.
  7. Bake 45-50 minutes until edges are browned and a toothpick comes out clean.
  8. Cool 15 minutes before flipping on a cooling rack to cool completely.
  9. For the glaze, whisk orange juice into the powdered sugar adding more orange juice if needed to get a thick but drizzle-able consistency.
  10. Drizzle glaze on cooled cake, slice and serve.
  11. Note *If you want to use another nut butter, use 1/4 cup nut/seed butter of choice and 1/4 cup coconut oil
  12. Enjoy!

*While Medjool dates are high in natural sugars, they are low on the glycemic index thanks to a balanced amount of soluble fiber. The complex carbohydrates found in Medjool dates are digested at a slower rate, making them a source of dietary fiber and releasing energy to the body over a longer period of time.
