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!!

How to Make Sweet Potato Banana Bread

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.
