Ultimate Pumpkin Spice Banana Bread

This quick bread is loaded with pumpkin and sweetened with banana.



Everyone loves a quick bread, and this one goes together in 10 minutes flat. Preheat the oven while you're making the batter - you'll have your own loaf of delicious pumpkin bread cooling on the kitchen counter in less than an hour.

It's not cake if you eat it for breakfast

If you want to drizzle the top with a quick icing, I won't tell anyone.

I love banana bread, and I also love all things pumpkin (and pumpkin spice!), so this recipe was an easy fix for both cravings. The bread is dense and moist, almost custard-y, thanks to all the pumpkin and the eggs. It has very little sugar and butter, but the banana fills in for both and I promise you won't even notice that this bread doesn't have the usual 1+ cups of sugar contained in traditional quick bread recipes. It's good for you, and yummy. Now, get to baking!


Pumpkin Spice Banana Bread


5 tbsp butter, melted

1 ripe banana, mashed

2 large eggs

1 cup pumpkin purée

1/4 cup granulated sugar

2 tbsp brown sugar


1 cup flour

1/2 tsp salt

1 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp baking soda

1 tsp cinnamon

1/8 tsp allspice, ginger, nutmeg


Preheat oven to 350. Butter a small loaf pan (4.5x8.5) and line with parchment paper. In small bowl, whisk together the flour, salt, baking powder, baking soda, and spices. In a large bowl, mix melted butter, banana, eggs, pumpkin, and sugars. Add the flour mixture to the pumpkin mixture, combining well. Pour batter into prepared loaf pan and bake ~40 minutes. Cool in pan on rack for 10 minutes, remove from pan and cool completely.


bon appétit !
