Teresa's StoryThis 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
sweet potato, mashed (or 15 oz. can sweet potatoes, drained and mashed)
light brown sugar, packed
all purpose flour
chopped pecans or walnuts (optional)
3In 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.

Can you replace the sweet potato with pumpkin puree?

Sure, I don't see why not! I love sweet potatoes so that's always been what I use but I think pumpkin would work just as well!

I prefer sweet potatoes, but would use pumpkin if I didn't have the pots handy. Thanks! I can't wait to try this recipe! :)
