Yield: Makes 9 to 12 pieces.

Timmy uses this delicious, and moist, bread to add still another vegetable element to his school lunch menu. But it also makes a tasty snack spread with cream cheese or low-fat cottage cheese.


  • 2 cups whole wheat flour (pastry flour preferred)
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder (preferably aluminum-free, available at health food stores)
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/4 teaspoon ginger
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1 large cooked sweet potato, mashed
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1/2 cup oil
  • 2 very ripe bananas, mashed
  • 1/2 cup chopped nuts
  • 1/2 cup raisins, plumped in 1/2 cup orange juice


Combine all dry ingredients in a large bowl. Mix together remaining ingredients and stir into dry mixture, stirring just enough to avoid lumps. Pour into an oiled and floured 9- by 9-inch pan. Bake for 45 minutes at 350 degrees F, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
