Endless dates

If we could, we would marry these things, because the combination of banana bread with dates is heaven to us. And obviously everything in moderation; although dates are very healthy. Yes, they contain a lot of (natural) sugars, but they also contain loads of fibers which make you feel much more saturated compared to usual sweets. Besides, dates contain tanninen and polyphelonen which have anti-inflammatory effects. So if is up to us, we can never eat enough of these brown fruits. Go read below how you make this delicious combination of banana bread with dates and walnut crumble!
