It seems that, about this time every year, I share a pumpkin bread recipe! Something about September gets me so excited for fall, and one of my favorite things about fall + the holidays is pumpkin bread!! My mama always makes pumpkin bread for Thanksgiving and Christmas family gatherings and it just brings back the best feelings of childhood! 🙂
Pumpkin bread holds a very special place in my heart!
So today, I’m here to share a variation of a recipe I’ve shared in the past. This year’s rendition involves bananas!! And I’m here to tell you… It’s GOOD!!
This recipe makes TWO loaves, and uses on entire can of pumpkin so no need trying to figure out what to do with the remaining 1/3 cup of pumpkin from your can! 🙂
WHAT YOU NEED:
For the streusel topping:
- 1/4 cup chopped pecans
- 1/4 cup pumpkin seeds
- 1/4 cup brown sugar
- 3 Tbl. chilled butter, chopped
- 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
For the bread:
- 3 cups whole wheat flour
- 1 cup oatmeal
- 1 cup stevia in the raw
- 2 ripe bananas, mashed
- 2 tsp. baking soda
- 2 tsp. salt
- 1 tsp. cinnamon
- 1 tsp. cloves
- 1 tsp. nutmeg
- 1 15 oz. can of pumpkin
- 1/4 cup greek yogurt (I use 0%)
- 3/4 cup honey
- 1/2 cup coconut oil
- 2 tsp. vanilla
- 4 eggs
WHAT YOU DO:
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- To prepare topping, combine first 4 ingredients until crumbly. Set the mixture aside.
- To prepare bread, lightly spoon flour into dry measuring cups; level with a knife. Combine flour and the next nine ingredients (flour through nutmeg) in your largest mixing bowl; stir well with a whisk. Make a well in center of mixture.
- Combine the pumpkin and next six ingredients (pumpkin through eggs) in a bowl; add to flour mixture. Stir just until moist.
- Spoon batter evenly into two 9 x 5-inch loaf pans coated with cooking spray; sprinkle half of the topping on each loaf.
- Bake at 350° for 1 hour or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool in pan 10 minutes on a wire rack; remove from pan. Cool completely on wire rack.
I recommend enjoying a warm slice with some cream cheese and jelly, or toasted with butter, or with a cup of coffee, or just plain…. So basically, I recommend eating this bread! haha
I hope you enjoy this recipe and are gearing up for a wonderful fall! 🙂
Thank you SO much for stopping by! XO!
This looks YUM!!! I like the way the instructions are written – it keeps the baker in the right place re: ingredients. Will definitely “give it a whirl” (to quote one Kevin McAlister)
“Give it a whirl” made me laugh out loud!!!
