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!!

Ingredients

2
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
vanilla
2 large
eggs
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

1
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray loaf pan with nonstick spray.
2
In a bowl, combine bananas, sweet potatoes, brown sugar, oil, vanilla, and eggs.
3
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.
4
Pour into prepared pan and bake for 40-45 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean.
5
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!!

These are the most amazing muffins EVER!! I apparently had large bananas and had to adjust the flour amount a bit, but they came out wonderful! I also intend to try them with a bit of orange zest, and another batch with a bit of coconut extract.
