1/2 c. honey
1 1/2 c. brown sugar
1 c. veggie oil
1 t. vanilla
3 cups whole wheat flours
3 cups white flour
2 T. cinnamon
2 t. baking powder
2 t. baking soda
2 t. salt
3 cups mashed banana OR pumpkin or canned sweet potato (drained and mashed)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease 3 8x4 loaf pans.

Whisk/mix first five ingredients. Add mashed banana OR pumpkin OR drained/mashed canned sweet potato. Mix dry ingredients together and then add to wet mixture. Divide evenly between three pans.

I hope you're enjoying your menu planning. That bread sure sounds good. (and thanks for sending me the punchline)

I love making those quick breads...they are my son's favorite. I checked out that sausage bean recipe link - that looks so good, and easy. Thanks for the link.
