Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Banana Bread Recipe

Posted Aug 06 2012 8:40am

Hi friends! I have an amazing feature for you today, including a recipe from the lovely Kristina of the beautiful blog Whipped! Not only is she just a fabulous blogger, she’s also one of my August sponsors, so give her a little love, will you? Check out her gorgeous blog here , send her a tweet here and like her on Facebook here !

One thing I’d love is some of this bread. MMMM! Take it away, Kristina!

Hi All! I am so excited that Claire is hosting me today on her absolutely fabulously delicious blog! She was one of the very first blogs I drooled over when I first started blogging and I am thrilled that she is sharing some of the foodie blog love with me now today!   My name is Kristina and I am the blogger behind Whipped .  My blog is all about finding happy, healthy recipes that don’t just taste good – but make you feel good too! That’s why when Claire asked me to share a recipe with you all, I knew I had to bring along my Chocolate Chip Pumpkin-Banana Bread.

Packed with whole grains and without butter or eggs, this bread is my favorite breakfast treat in the morning with my (very large) cup of coffee. Makes Monday mornings almost bearable! Almost :)

And yes… I know what you’re thinking… pumpkin bread? Already? I couldn’t resist dipping into my fall recipes a bit early this year, and I swear saving pumpkin recipes for October is way overrated! For all of you melting in the triple digit weather (like me!), stay cool and dream of September with a bit of chocolate chip pumpkin-banana bread!   Thanks so much again for having me Claire! I’m so excited to be a part of your irresistible blog today!!
