Teresa's Story

This is so moist and flavorful! I love banana bread and this is a nice change from the usual. It's a great way to sneak in some healthy sweet potatoes for a picky eater too! I love to use the spiced nuts that I make at Christmas in recipes that call for nuts. It adds just a touch more flavor! Yum!!


over-ripe bananas, mashed
1 c
sweet potato, mashed (or 15 oz. can sweet potatoes, drained and mashed)
3/4 c
light brown sugar, packed
1/4 c
canola oil
1 tsp
2 large
1 c
all purpose flour
1 tsp
baking soda
1/2 tsp
baking powder
1 tsp
ground cinnamon
1/2 c
chopped pecans or walnuts (optional)

Directions Step-By-Step

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray loaf pan with nonstick spray.
In a bowl, combine bananas, sweet potatoes, brown sugar, oil, vanilla, and eggs.
In a separate bowl, combine flour, baking soda, baking powder, and cinnamon. Stir the flour mixture into the banana mixture only until just combined. Fold in nuts.
Pour into prepared pan and bake for 40-45 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean.
VARIATION*** I used canned organic butternut squash in place of the sweet potatoes and I made a glaze of powdered sugar and pumpkin spice liquid coffee creamer... DELICIOUS!!
