I know it’s still summer and 100 degrees outside and you are all probably still wearing shorts, and here I am breaking out the pumpkin recipes 🙂 I seriously love pumpkin and once school starts all I can think about is Fall, soup, football, and pumpkin. Since school started last week for us, I am in full blown pumpkin mode. I went a bit crazy last year and bought extra cans of pumpkin just so I could have it year round, and it worked out because when that pumpkin craving hit, I already had the pumpkin.


In my defense, this bread does have banana in it 🙂 You get the comforting, warm flavor & spice from the pumpkin, and then the sweet and lighter flavor from the banana. This bread is so good. If you can, be sure and save a loaf of this for the next day after baking. The flavor intensifies and the bread gets even more moist then the day before. It’s so good.

My son came home from school and ate about half a loaf by himself. He gets so hungry after school so I always try and have something for him. Plus, with all those chocolate chips how could you not love this bread. I use the mini chocolate chips because they’re cute and they’re smaller so there is more chocolate chips in each bite, instead of one big chunk from regular chocolate chips.

You could bake this in mini loaf pans or even 8x4-inch loaf pans. Just make sure that whatever size you use, that they are only 1/2 full - 2/3 full of the batter. If there is too much batter in the loaf pan your bread will end up sinking in the middle. Watch the time as using a smaller sized loaf pan will have the bread cook quicker.


  • 11 tablespoons butter (1 stick + 3 tablespoons), softened
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 1/3 cups granulated sugar
  • 3 1/2 cups flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1 cup bananas, mashed (about 2 medium bananas)
  • 2-3 cups chocolate chips (I use mini chocolate chips)


  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees and spray 2 9x5-inch bread pans with nonstick spray.
  2. in a large mixer add the butter,eggs, sugar and vanilla and blend until smooth.
  3. Add the pumpkin puree and mashed banana. Blend until combined.
  4. In a separate mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and pumpkin pie spice. Add to the mixer in small batches and blend on low speed to mix just until incorporated.
  5. Add the chocolate chips and mix just until combined.
  6. Divide the batter between the two pans. Load pans should be about half to 2/3 full.
  7. Bake for 45 minutes and then loosely lay tin foil over the pans. Bake for an additional 10-15 minutes or until there is a nice peak in the middle and a toothpick inserted comes out with moist crumbs (not wet batter). Total cook time will be about 55 minutes to 1 hour.

      I would leave the temperature the same, 350 degrees. If you are baking regular sized muffins, I would start with 12 minutes and then see from there. I’ve never tried these as muffins so I am not sure how long they would take. I would guess 12-15 minutes. If you are doing mini sized muffins, then the time would be closer to like 8 minutes.
