Combine all dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl and stir well. If desired, you can add a half cup of crushed walnuts or chopped coconut.
In another bowl, whisk all remaining ingredients, including chopped carrots and bananas. Alternatively, you can technically save time and whisk them directly into the dry ingredients to form a batter.
Smooth batter into prepared loaf pan. Place on rack in center of oven and bake for 45 minutes or until carrot-banana bread is nearly clean with a toothpick stuck in center.
Let the bread cool completely before circling the sides with a knife. Invert onto a large serving plate and frost if desired.
