This date nut banana bread was so quick to become a staple in my house! It’s fluffy, moist and super easy to whip up! The walnuts have a perfectly delicious crunch and the dates add a lovely natural sweetness that you can taste in every bite! It’s also vegan, oil free and contains no refined sugars. I love enjoying this loaf slathered with some nut butter for breakfast, or with a cozy cup of tea or coffee for a delicious afternoon treat!
