Pumpkin Banana Bread Recipe @

Easy to make Pumpkin Banana Bread gets an extra flavor and beautiful color with addition of the pumpkin. The pumpkin not only adds flavor but also it adds fiber and allowing the bread to call for less oil while still maintaining the perfect, most texture.

I had used homemade pumpkin puree but canned pumpkin should work too. This bread turned out great. For best result, slice when it is completely cooled or  refrigerated the bread overnight wraps in plastic wrap.

It was delicious on its own but with frosting it creates a beautiful treat!

This sounds really good! I have some ripe bananas on my kitchen counter right now. Can I use more regular flour if I don't have corn flour?

Just two days back I baked a pumpkin choco chip cake and like I too made my own pumpkin puree since the canned ones are not available in India.
Love your healthier version of pumpkin bread.
