  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease two 4x8-inch loaf pans.
  2. Combine flour, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt together in a bowl. Beat brown sugar and butter together in a separate bowl using an electric mixer until smooth and creamy. Stir flour mixture, alternating with bananas, into creamed butter mixture just until batter is mixed; fold in carrots and walnuts. Pour into the prepared loaf pans.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted in the center of a loaf comes out clean, 50 to 60 minutes.

This recipe was delicious. I added two eggs and sprinkled the top with sanding sugar. My family ate the entire loaf. I also added about 1 1/2 cups walnuts and a tsp. vanilla.
