Pumpkin Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins/Loaf

My family is all about the pumpkin stuff! Tis' the season, no? And I'm all about doing my best to keep it healthy. So when I made these somewhat healthy muffins/loaf, I was a very popular mom/aunt/sister in law! My sister in law and her sister in law even thought it was cake. Cake for breakfast…. yes please! 

Ingredients


1 3/4 cups of pumpkin puree (or a 15 oz can for you Americans who actually have the 15 oz can)
4 bananas
1 cup of vegetable oil
2/3 cups of water
2 cups of brown sugar
3 and 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
2 tsp baking soda
2 tsp of ground cinnamon
1 tsp of ground nutmeg
1 tsp of pumpkin pie spice
1 splash of vanilla 
(with the spices, it's all according to preference, right)
1/2 cup to 1 cup of chocolate chips (optional). Raisins/currants would be good too. 
1/2 cup of walnuts



Method:

1- Mix all the wet ingredients, the pumpkin and the banana included and the sugar together. I used my Vitamix to get a nice creamy mixture. 



2- Mix all the dry ingredients together.


3- Combine them both then add the chocolate chips and nuts. I forgot to take a picture. 

4- You can either make 3 loaves but I made muffins for the littles and one loaf.
Grease or use liners for the muffin tins/loaf pan

12 muffins filled 3/4 way up!


and one loaf. 


5- Bake muffins for 25 minutes and loaf for about 50 or until a toothpick comes out dry.

Enjoy!

The loaf got cut into before I got to take a picture but it was so yummy!! The banana, pumpkin combination was a beautiful thing!


(truth be told, this pic is from another pumpkin chip recipe/batch. I might have forgotten to take a picture again but it looked very similar!.


Happy Fall, Y'All!!
