Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. In a large mixing bowl, whisk the olive oil and honey. Now add the eggs and whisk again to combine.
  2. Now add the bananas yogurt, milk, baking soda, vanilla extract, cardamom, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Whisk again. Using a spatula, stir in the flour; then add the dates and walnuts and stir the batter again until everything is well combined.
  3. Lightly oil a non-stick a 5 3/4 x 3 loaf pan like this one. Pour the batter into the loaf pan and shake very gently so it evens out.

  5. Remove from the oven and let the bread cool for 10 minutes, then transfer to cool on a wire rack for another 20 minutes or so. Slice and enjoy!
