Recipe By: Madeline


  • 2 large ripe bananas
  • 1 cup pumpkin puree
  • 2 eggs (room temperature)
  • ½ cup vegetable oil
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 and ¼ cups all purpose flour
  • 3 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp kosher salt


  1. Preheat oven to 350F and grease a loaf pan or line with parchment paper
  2. Mash bananas with a fork or potato masher in a large mixing bowl. Pour the pumpkin puree, eggs, vegetable oil, and sugar into the bowl. Mix with a whisk until smooth.
  3. In a separate bowl mix together all purpose flour, pumpkin pie spice, baking soda and salt. Pour dry ingredients into the bowl with the wet ingredients and fold together with a flat spatula.
  4. Pour batter into the prepared loaf pan. Bake at 350F for 70 minutes total. After 35 minutes of baking, loosely place a piece of tinfoil over the loaf to prevent the top from browning too much and continue cooking for another 35 minutes.
  5. Remove from the oven and allow to cool completely before slicing then slice into 8 slices and enjoy!
