Skinnymixer’s Banana, Walnut & Date Loaf

So many people ask ‘What is the best Banana Bread Thermomix recipe?’ 

Hardly an original recipe concept, but this Banana, Walnut & Date Loaf is delicious, grain free, dairy free and very low in unrefined sugar. 

It’s definitely something I still consider a treat food, because I have about 8 kg to go with my weight loss and I have found that nuts don’t seem to work for me; but its a great after school snack for the kids and I wouldn’t think twice about serving this to them for breakfast either.
