AWESOME recipe!! I love the fact that it is healthier (with the flaxseed meal) and not so sweet. The dates compliment the bananas perfectly. I used toasted pecans insted of the exta 1/4 cup flaxseeds. I'm going to throw away all my other banana bread recipes - this one is the KEEPER!
Banana-Date Flaxseed Bread

I'm so impressed! I do not like the taste of flaxseed oil and I've never really ground flaxseeds to add to a recipe before, so I was skeptical of how this would taste. There is no outstanding flaxy taste, and the dates are a nice little sweet addition. Overall it's a moist bread with a mild banana flavor. I think this will be my go-too banana bread recipe from now on.

Delish! Have made this many times and this is by far the best healthy version of banana bread. Substitued whole wheat flour instead of white for an extra health boost. And I always leave out the dates. Usually make as muffins (baking for 15-20 minutes).

Seemed oily and heavy, and I would not make again.
