Pumpkin Banana Bread

It's Fall... which means all things pumpkin!  And that's no different here in the Thayer household.  Here is my recipe for Pumpkin Banana Bread!

Pumpkin Banana Bread
yields 2 loaves

3 medium ripe bananas
3 eggs
2 c pumpkin puree, unsweetened
2/3 c canola oil
1 c cane sugar
3 c all-purpose flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp kosher salt
3 tsp pumpkin pie spice
1 1/2 tsp cinnamon

Preheat oven to 350 degrees, and grease 2 loaf pans.
In a mixing bowl, mash bananas; then add eggs, pumpkin puree, oil, sugar, and mix well.
In a separate bowl, combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and spices.
Slowly add dry ingredients to wet ingredients, mixing as you go along.
Once well combined, divide batter between 2 loaf pans.
Bake 45 minutes, or until toothpick comes out clear.
Cool and Enjoy!

Try warmed slices stopped with a little butter, or peanut butter... or simply with a cup of pumpkin spice coffee!
