Easy Atta Banana and Walnut bread

My daughter Aanya is a relatively good eater, but she has her bouts of pickiness and at such times you have to serve dishes which will look appealing to them but are also packed with nutrition. This bread below is an easy recipe which is made of wholewheat flour, banana and walnuts which are all great for kids. So when my girl wants to have cake for a snack or meal, I give her this which is moist and delicious enough to pass as a cake and yet full of nutrition.
