Sweet Potato Banana Bread

Teresa Jacobson Recipe

By Teresa Jacobson foundmyzen

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!!

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!!
