pumpkin chocolate chip banana bread 🧡 an OG fave from the blog I make year after year! Literally made this this morning. It’ll make your house smell like heaven 🎃 You gotta make this! Recipe below.
Makes 1 loaf:
2 very ripe bananas
1/2 c pumpkin puree
1/2 c maple syrup
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 flax egg or egg (flax egg: 3 tbsp water & 1 tbsp flaxmeal, mix and let sit for 7-10 minutes)
2 c flour - I did 1 cup gf oat and 1 cup almond flour. love this combo for that moist texture!
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 c choc chips (dairy free if making it vegan). You can also used chopped nuts.
Preheat oven to 350.
Make flax egg and set aside.
Mix wet ingredients well - pumpkin puree, mashed banana, maple syrup, and vanilla. Add flax egg (or real egg) when it’s ready.
Add in dry ingredients - flour, cinnamon, pumpkin spice, baking soda and baking powder. Mix well until a smooth batter is formed.
Fold in chocolate chips.
Grease / line a loaf pan and pour in batter evenly. Sprinkle with more chocolate chips.
Bake for 50 minutes. I like mine a little ‘undercooked’, but you can be the judge of that 😉 it will be fluffier if you add an egg.
Let cool for a few minutes and enjoy! Love a sprinkle of sea salt on top.
Store on the counter the first day (if it lasts the long) and in the fridge for another 2 if needed. heat for 10 seconds when you want to eat.
