We eat banana bread year round, but come fall and ALL things pumpkin, there is nothing better than mixing the two and making this delicious Banana Pumpkin Quick Bread. The warmth of the Pumpkin Spice and Nutmeg with the spongy rich texture of the banana makes this one of my top 3 favorite fall sweets. With simple pantry staples, you can whip this bread up in no time. This recipe makes 2 loaves, for good reason… because you will want to hide one just for yourself. Okay okay, sharing is caring and you should totally give some to that sweet neighbor of yours. But beware, they will be asking for more!!

Happy Baking my friends!

  • In a large bowl mix mashed bananas, pumpkin, both sugars, applesauce, butter & vanilla until well incorporated. Add in the eggs one at a time, mixing well between each.
  • In a separate bowl, mix flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt & spices together.
