  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.

We liked it. I omitted the walnuts due to an allergy and made it in one pan. The dough is very thick but the end product is very moist and tasty.

Mine turned out moist and delicious, though a little dense. I might try modifying the receipe a bit next time to get it to rise a bit more.
