Made with pumpkin, banana, and a hint of cinnamon, this nutritious bread marries natural sweetness with a nutty almond flour.
For a twist on classic banana bread, pumpkin purée elevates the natural sweetness of crushed bananas while cinnamon and pumpkin spice offer a fall-inspired ensemble. Serve it with your favorite coffee or hot chocolate for a fresh, homemade snack.
To get started, mix the dry ingredients in a large bowl and combine the wet ingredients in a separate bowl. Pour the two mixtures together and mix until fully combined. Then, transfer the mixture into the loaf pan and use a spatula to smooth it into a single layer.

When ready, place in the oven and bake for 45 minutes. Check for readiness by inserting a toothpick into the center of the bread. If it comes out clean, it’s ready to remove from the oven. Serve warm and enjoy immediately or store leftovers in the fridge for up to four days.
Tip: Sprinkle dark chocolate chips into the batter for a dessert-y touch or add chopped walnuts for a crunchy texture.
