Another one I haven't tried yet but looks good. This recipe came from the back of a pecan pack.

This was quite a tasty loaf. I used olive oil, chopped & toasted my pecans, chopped whole dates & used frozen mashed bananas. I also added the lemon zest as the previous reviewer had mentioned that it was not very tangy. It produced quite a dense loaf. It was lovely toasted & buttered for breakfast. The lemon zest didn't really add much to the flavour. This is a very low fat loaf, I might add some yogurt to it the next time I make it. Thanks for posting this recipe mummy. Made for PAC Spring 2011
