Banana Bread (Dairy, Gluten, Grain & Nut free)

So we moved into our 'new' house nearly 3 months ago, crazy how fast time goes by. We are loving living here, it's so great being near the water, I feel like it's a different world sometimes.

Anyway, I'd been neglecting my cooking, but I've started getting back into it lately. My little Miss PJ has eczema all over her arms and on her torso, so we've been seeing our local naturopath, Tove, who has got PJ and myself (as I'm still nursing) totally off dairy. Miss A suffers from reoccurring ear infections (aka glue ear) so she is off gluten, which Tove says is just like glue! We are also limiting our nut intake so Miss A is off her almond milk and now on organic soy.
Therefore I've kinda been forced to get creative in the kitchen again.
So enter banana bread, it's dairy, gluten, grain & nut free, but unlike some others it's still yummy.

Preheat oven to 160c.

Place in Thermomix:
6 fresh dates, pitted
Blitz on Speed 8, 5 seconds.

3 ripe medium sized bananas
1/4 cup coconut oil
4 eggs
1 tbs pure maple syrup
Blitz again on Speed 8, 5 seconds.

3/4 cup coconut flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp himalayan rock salt, ground
1/2 tsp cinnamon
30 seconds on Interval setting.

Spoon into a greased and lined loaf tin. Bake for 35-45 mins, or until a knife comes out clean.
