My recipe for pumpkin banana bread is not only easy to whip up, it's totally delish too! #pumpkinbananabread

I’m having a blast using all the pumpkin puree possible.

Lately, I’ve been purchasing tons of cans of pumpkin puree. I’m not sure why, but there’s something about this season that makes me gravitate towards them in the grocery store. On my last canned pumpkin haul, I baked these fresh pumpkin chocolate chip cookies – and they were a hit!

This week, I found myself with some overly ripe bananas, so naturally, banana bread was in order in our kitchen! And then, it hit me: with canned pumpkin sitting in my pantry, I only thought it appropriate to whip-up a scrumptious Pumpkin Banana Bread.

…and I’m here to tell you how!

How to Make Pumpkin Banana Bread

Making Pumpkin Banana Bread is not hard whatsoever. On the contrary, all it takes is lots of mixing and a dash of love – I mean, love is what makes every meal and dessert delicious, isn’t it?!

When you make your Pumpkin Banana Bread, be sure you mash the banana thoroughly. It shouldn’t be hard since the recipe calls for a very ripe banana. I used a potato masher to achieve the perfect consistency.

As I listed it in the ingredients above, be sure you are purchasing pure pumpkin puree and not pumpkin pie filling. You can’t substitute one for the other or else it will throw your entire recipe off.

Generously coat a loaf pan with cooking spray and set aside.
