  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice*
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup oil
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 medium bananas , mashed
  • 1 cup canned pumpkin puree (not pumpkin pie filling)
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts , optional


  1. Preheat the oven to 350F degrees. Grease and flour a 9x5 inch loaf pan.**

  2. In a medium bowl whisk together the flour, pumpkin pie spice, cinnamon, baking soda, baking powder & salt.

  3. In a large bowl whisk together the oil, sugars, eggs & vanilla extract until no lumps remain.

  4. Stir in the mashed bananas & pumpkin puree.

  5. Carefully stir the flour mixture into the wet ingredients using a rubber spatula or wooden spoon. Then stir in the chopped nuts.

  6. Pour the batter into the prepared pan and bake for 50-60 minutes or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean and the top feels firm to the touch. The loaf shouldn't wobble if you nudge the pan.

Recipe Notes

*If you don't have pumpkin pie spice use 1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon, 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger & 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg.

**Make sure to use a 9x5 inch loaf pan. If you use an 8x4 inch loaf pan the batter may overflow. 

***Store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days. Loaf and be frozen for up to 2 months and thawed in the fridge.
