Banana, date and walnut loaf

Banana, date and walnut loaf

This clearly has to be a post that has taken a couple of hours to type as I had to go between the laptop to a 2.5 week old baby! Now that she is taking a nap, I typed out this recipe in lightening speed :). K bought loads of bananas and a few of them were ready to be used in a recipe, so I decided to make this quick and easy recipe. Goes perfect with tea time. Hope you get to try it sometime! :)
