My brother makes a killer banana bread, where the batter is basically a way to cement together all kinds of nutty, fruity goodness. There is no oil at all in this recipe. The result is almost fruitcakeish, except that it's actually edible! :-) Like fruitcake, the loaves are pretty stable and improve with age. You can add pretty much any kind/combination of dried fruit and nuts - as long as it adds up to the same total weight of the ingredients listed below.
