Spelt and honey banana bread with dates and walnuts

After returning from a few days away, we again had a few bananas which were heading towards their use by date.  I found this recipe amongst a pile of pages torn out from magazines, and am unable to tell which mag it is from.

I’ve made a few banana bread recipes in my time, they are so easy to put together and normally look and taste impressive.  I love the addition of walnuts and dates, and I was almost tempted to add shredded coconut but decided against it – will add it next time though.

This had a great consistency and Liam and I shared a piece toasted with fresh banana and honey drizzled on top – YUM!  The rest has already been wrapped up and put into the freezer, it will be perfect for when we need a treat quickly.

* Add the walnuts and dates and stir together

* Combine the banana, oil, eggs and honey in a bowl, then add to the flour mixture and stir until just combined.
