Whole Wheat Pumpkin Banana Bread

Jump to Recipe

I have been on a banana bread baking mission lately. I wanted to try something a little different and make whole wheat pumpkin banana bread. The pumpkin and banana flavors are super complimentary in this bread. It is a sweet but not overly sweet banana bread with a fantastic mix of rich flavors.

Pumpkin AND banana?!

Yep, pumpkin and banana! Needless to say, I’m a huge fan of both pumpkin and banana bread. The banana and pumpkin flavors along with the whole wheat flour really compliment each other in this recipe. What’s better than getting ready for fall with everything pumpkin and combining a classic staple like banana bread? Nothing, at all! It is a great combination.

Can I use frozen bananas?

Of course, frozen bananas are fantastic for making banana bread. I love freezing bananas to use for smoothies or banana bread.

Can I add nuts to this pumpkin banana bread recipe?

If desired, adding a 1/2 cup of walnuts or pecans would be a delicious addition to this recipe.

    I too love pumpkin and banana bread! Now, this two combined sounds so delicious! I’d love to give this recipe a try!

  4. I also love pumpkin and banana breads. I’m always trying new recipes! I do eat a gluten free diet. I have found that in many recipes you can exchange GF flour with other flours and have a good result. Sounds yummy!
