I almost always have overripe bananas in my house. What better way to use them up than in banana bread? And then add in some pumpkin for extra flavour! Throw in lovely pumpkin pie spice which is really nothing other than cinnamon, ginger powder, cloves and nutmeg. Some walnuts for the bite and dark chocolate chips for making this bread dreamy!

This is a healthy easy one bowl recipe. Its wholesome thanks to the goodness of  bananas and pumpkin in there. Made with whole-wheat flour, its lightly sweetened with brown sugar. It could easily take jaggery powder or honey, if you want a refined sugar free version. I do plan to make it again with date syrup. Coconut oil adds a touch of its nutty sweet  fragrance which we all love. You could certainly use any other vegetable oil you prefer.
