Cinnamon Swirl Pumpkin Banana Bread

I'm trying to hold on to fall a little longer with another pumpkin recipe.  I am not ready for winter!

How was everyones Thanksgiving?  My Thanksgiving was fabulous!  So good that is caused me to be MIA for quite some time.  I'm finally back and I have a delicious recipe that I want to share with you all.  A dangerously delicious pumpkin banana bread with a surprise cinnamon swirl running through the good!

I love banana bread.  I think I purposely buy way too many bananas just so I can say, "oh no!  The bananas are overripe - guess I need to make a banana bread."  Anyone else guilty? 

I have tried a few different banana bread recipes and combinations but I would love to hear your favorites.  What do you like to add to your recipes or are you a purist?

Here are a few recipes I've already posted, I can't pick a favorite:

Cinnamon Swirl Pumpkin Banana Bread
recipe from The Messy Baker
2 cups flour
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
3/4 cup pumpkin puree
2 ripe bananas
3/4 cup brown sugar
4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
1/3 cup plain Greek yogurt
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup pecans, toasted and chopped

for the swirl combine:
1/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon

Preheat oven to 350 and prep a loaf pan by greasing and flouring.
Ina small bowl whisk together the first 4 ingredients.
In a large bowl mash together the bananas and the pumpkin and add in the brown sugar, melted butter and the yogurt.  Once combined mix in the eggs and vanilla.
Now fold in the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and add in your pecans.  
Add half the batter to the loaf pan and sprinkle the cinnamon sugar over it, now top with the rest of the batter.
Bake in oven for 50-60 minutes or until it passes the toothpick test.

One year ago I made Lentil Soup.

Two years ago I made Sauteed Kale with Toasted Sesame Seeds and Parm.

Three years ago I made Swirled Pumpkin and Chocolate Cheesecake.

Four years ago I made Delicious Dreidels.

Linking up to these happening parties!


  1. I recently started sharing recipes on The Jenny Evolution and thought it would be terrific to have a group on FB where we can share our recipes not just with other bloggers but with people who are searching out recipes. That said, I’m launching a Food Blogger group! If we work together we can make this a great outlet for all of us. If you’d like to join, visit me here
