Pumpkin Banana Bread? Why Not?!

2014 October 30

Pumpkin Season means coming up with creative recipes to USE the happy orange gourd!

But the thing is… I’m a fan of all things BANANA.

I’ve been researching and dreaming up ways to incorporate my love of the banana with everyone’s favorite fall fascination of pumpkin flavored treats.

I started out with my favorite banana bread and/or muffin recipe (you can find it on my site). Or use your own favorite Banana Bread recipe…


Because I wanted a big batch of muffins for school lunches I doubled the recipe. And froze half of them.


Half bananas and half pumpkin. Adding a little bit of cinnamon—about ¾ teaspoon. And chocolate chips on top of course.


The result was a really moist muffin with really only a hint of pumpkin flavor. The bananas kind of won the battle for flavor. Maybe less bananas next time and more pumpkin? I’m not a fan of extra spices in pumpkin treats… see my favorite pumpkin recipes and please… GO EASY ON THE SPICES people!


When I was searching for other pumpkin/banana treats a few blogger friends were there to save my pumpkin day!

How about Pumpkin Banana Breakfast shake from Kristen at DineandDish.net?
She added applesauce and honey as well as milk and whip cream on top of course!


This Pumpkin Banana Mousse Tart comes from Lori Lang of RecipeGirl.com


My new blogger friend Nancy at BitterSideofSweet.com right here in the Carolinas put a spin on one of my favorite pumpkin holiday recipes and all ‘chocolatified’ the Pumpkin Roll! I’m totally on board with trying it her way for a change!


How are you ‘mixin it up’ this year with your pumpkin recipes?

A few more cuz I can’t help myself.
