Pumpkin Spice Banana Bread
No better way to welcome fall than a warm slice of Pumpkin Spice Banana Bread!
- 4 large eggs
- 2 medium bananas, ripe
- 1 15 oz. can pure pumpkin
- 1/3 c. unsalted butter, softened
- 1/3 c. canola oil
- 1/2 tsp. vanilla
- 3/4 c. of sugar
- 3 1/2 c. of flour
- 2 tsp. baking powder
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 3 tsp pumpkin pie spice
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 10 oz. bag of mini chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350°F and using Bak-Klene ZT Nonstick Baking Spray, grease 2 8.5x4.5 standard loaf pans and set it aside.
Using a mixer fitted with a paddle blade, blend the following ingredients until mostly smooth; eggs, bananas, pumpkin, butter, oil, and vanilla. (It's okay if there are a few lumps of butter).
Divide the batter between two loaf pans and bake for 45-60 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into the center of the bread comes out clean. Cool for 15 minutes in the pan before transferring to a cooling rack. Enjoy with a glass of milk!
NOTE: If the top of the bread begins to brown and the center is not done, cover with foil and continue to cook, checking the bread for doneness every 7 minutes.
