1 cup mashed ripe bananas ( use any sweet variety for enhanced flavor)
6 pieces date fruits- peel and minced
1/2 cup wheat flour
1 teaspoon cinnamon powder.
Olive oil and a pinch of salt
Mix all of the above ingredients into a slightly thick paste, to make scones. Apply  like 2 or 3 tablespoons for each scone
Line pan with olive oil and pan fry until cooked. Or you may prefer to use butter instead
Makes  a great dessert for tea.

The Health benefits of date fruits:
 Dates fruit provides natural sugar in the form of glucose and fructose which is easily absorbed by the body providing instant energy. 
Dates contain elemental fluorine that is useful in protecting teeth against decay. Selenium, another element believed to help prevent cancer and important in immune function, is also found in dates. The protein in dates contains 23 types of amino acids, some of which are not present in the most popular fruits such as oranges, apples and bananas.

Traditional uses…Dates have a high tannin content and are used medicinally as a detersive (having cleansing power) and astringent in intestinal troubles. Also as an infusion, decoction, syrup, or paste, dates may be administered for sore throat, colds and taken to relieve fever - wiklipedia

On the many health benefits of bananas, please refer to my previous -link here:
