One of my favourite recipes is this pumpkin banana bread loaf. I’m not sure where I found the original version, but since then I’ve played around with it and love baking it for people.  
Ingredients (makes 2 9×5 loaves):
  •  3 cups flour
  • 2 tsp. salt
  • 2 tsp. baking soda
  • 2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1 tsp. nutmeg
  • 2 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
  • 3 bananas
  • 2 tbsp. butter
  • 2 cups brown sugar
  • 1 can pumpkin puree
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tsp. vanilla
  • 1 cup chocolate chips
  • Nuts (optional)

1) Mix all the dry ingredients together: flour, baking soda, salt, and spices, in a medium-sized bowl. 
Pre-heat the oven to 350*F.

Mix the wet ingredients in a separate bowl- I used my KitchenAid for this part.

 5) Pour the mixture into two 9×5 loaf pans. I used parchment paper because I was bringing one of the loaves to my friend’s house that night. Make sure it’s all smoothed out.
6) Bake at 350*F for about an hour, rotating the pans throughout. Check the loaves with a clean knife since it’ll stay pretty moist for a while.
