Nutritional values

Both the bananas and the walnuts in this recipe are an excellent source of vitamin B6 and magnesium. Vitamin B6 helps improve brain performance and is good for the nervous system while magnesium is important for a healthy heart!

If you do not like walnuts, try topping the banana loaf with other nuts like pecans.
