Banana bread or banana cake, however you like to call it, always tastes great. Whether you add nuts, chocolate or both, banana bread is simply delicious. For this particular banana bread recipe, I've decided on a combination of nuts and chocolate. I have sweetened my banana bread with dates instead of sugar or syrup, so it's not only a moreish dessert but also a sweet energy boost for between meals.
