  1. Preheat oven to 180°C. Lightly spray a 10 cm x 20 cm loaf tin with oil and line base and sides with baking paper.
  2. Place bran in a small heatproof bowl. Pour over ¼ cup (60 ml) boiling water. Stand for 5 minutes or until water is absorbed and bran is soft.
  3. Process oats in a small food processor until coarsely chopped. Add soaked bran, flour, baking powder, bicarbonate of soda, banana, syrup, cinnamon, eggs and dates. Pulse to combine. Transfer mixture to a medium bowl. Stir through carrot and apple.
  4. Spoon mixture into prepared tin and spread evenly. Bake for 45–50 minutes or until a skewer inserted in centre comes out clean. Turn onto a wire rack to cool completely.
  5. To make cream cheese frosting, mix all ingredients in a medium bowl until well combined. Spread frosting over cooled loaf, sprinkle with walnuts and slice to serve.
