How to Make Pumpkin Banana Bread
Not only is this bread delicious, but it comes together in one bowl! One of my favorite parts of this recipe. That means you are only one bowl and a handful of ingredients away from some scrumptious banana bread.
First, start off creaming the butter with the sugars until light and fluffy. Add in the wet ingredients which includes the ripe bananas, pumpkin pureé and eggs.
Next up: the dry ingredients. Gently mix them in until combined. Being careful to not over-mix at this point. Pour into a bread pan or baking dish.
Finally, bake the pumpkin banana bread until perfectly fluffy and delicious!
This recipe is perfect for breakfast, an afternoon snack, or could easily be turned into a dessert with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top and a caramel drizzle. We are in a no judgement zone here – all things go.

The wonderful combination of cozy cinnamon and nutmeg pair perfectly with the delightful pumpkin and fruity banana.

- 2 sticks (16 tablespoons) butter, softened
- 1 cup sugar
- 2 large eggs
- 2 ripe bananas
- 1/2 cup pumpkin pureé
- 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
- 1 1/2 cups flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
- Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. In the bowl of an electric mixer, cream together the butter and sugar on medium speed until light and fluffy, about a couple minutes. Reduce the speed to low and add in one egg at a time, making sure to wipe down the sides of the bowl in between each addition.
- With the mixer speed on low, mix in the bananas, pumpkin puree and vanilla until smooth and combined, about a couple minutes. Add in the flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg and mix until combined. Pour the batter into a greased bread pan (standard size) and bake for 30 minutes.
- Reduce the heat to 325 and bake for another 25-30 minutes or until the top is golden brown and the center is cooked through. Allow the pumpkin banana bread to cool slightly in the pan before turning it out onto a cooling rack to cool completely.
