  • Preheat oven to 350 F. Lightly grease an 8 x 4-inch loaf pan with butter or oil and dust with flour. Set aside.
  • Into a large bowl, add whole wheat flour, all-purpose flour, baking powder, cinnamon, baking soda, and salt. Whisk to combine.
  • In a separate large bowl, whisk together eggs, bananas, dates, butter, maple syrup and vanilla extract. Once combined, add in the dry ingredients and stir. Fold in ¾ cup pecans.
  • Pour batter in the prepared loaf pan. Top with 1 banana (cut lengthwise) and the remaining ¼ cup chopped pecans.
  • Bake for 50-55 minutes, or until the bread has risen nicely and a toothpick comes out clean. Cool for 10-15 minutes, then cut into 10 slices. ENJOY!
