Teresa's notes for this recipe:
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!!

Directions

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.

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!!

Can you replace the sweet potato with pumpkin puree?
user Teresa Jacobson foundmyzen - Mar 6, 2011
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!
user stacey ruddach sruddach - Mar 7, 2011
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! :)
