Pumpkin Banana Bread
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat a 9-by-5-inch loaf pan with cooking spray.Advertisement
Whisk flour, cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda and salt together in a medium bowl.
Whisk pumpkin puree, mashed banana, brown sugar, butter, orange juice, eggs and vanilla together in a large bowl. Add the dry ingredients and stir with a wooden spoon until just combined. Fold in chocolate chips, if using.
Transfer the batter to the prepared loaf pan. Bake until a toothpick inserted into the center of the loaf comes out clean, 45 to 55 minutes. Let cool in the pan on a wire rack for 10 minutes. Remove from the pan and let cool for at least 20 minutes more before slicing.
To make ahead: The loaf will keep, well wrapped, at room temperature for up to 4 days or in the freezer for up to 4 months.
