Preheat the oven to 180°C/350°F/Gas 4. 

In a large bowl mix together all of the dry ingredients. 

In a separate bowl, beat together the date syrup, eggs and yoghurt. Mash the bananas and fold into the flour mixture. 

Grease a 20cm x 12.5cm/8in x 5in loaf tin and pour in the mixture. 

Transfer to the oven and bake for about 45 minutes to an hour, or until well risen and golden brown.

Remove from the oven and cool in the tin for a few minutes, then turn out onto a wire rack to cool completely before serving.
