Start the fall season with a delicious loaf of Pumpkin Banana Chocolate Chip Bread!
With pumpkin season right around the corner, I will be bringing you some delicious pumpkin recipes to satisfy your cravings for pumpkin spice! To start, I'm sharing a tasty Pumpkin Banana Chocolate Chip Bread recipe that's super easy to make.
This bread is similar to my Simple Banana Bread recipe with the addition of canned pumpkin, pumpkin pie spice and chocolate chips— an absolutely heavenly combination!
When baking Pumpkin Banana Bread, you'll want to make sure that your bananas are super ripe. I always have ripe bananas when I need them because I peel and freeze fresh bananas in a Ziploc bag as soon as they blacken. Then when I'm in the mood to bake any type of banana bread or muffin, I have exactly what I need ready in the freezer. To thaw, simply leave on the counter until they mush with a fork. Then add to recipe as needed.
