Healthier Banana Pumpkin Bread

Just because fall is over doesn’t mean we have to stop with the pumpkin goodies. I like to have a slice of this with yogurt or as a mid morning snack with some cinnamon and peanut butter. This also keeps with any new year goals to eat healthier or eat whole foods.


This bread is super moist and nice and thick. You just need one bowl and a whisk to make the batter. Love simple recipes like this. I have also subbed the 2 cups whole wheat flour using half ground flax and also I did 1 cup whole wheat flour, 1/2 cup ground flax and 1/2 cup oats. Feel free to experiment.
