Easy Vegan Pumpkin Banana Bread

This delicious homemade vegan pumpkin banana bread is so moist and delicious!

 

It’s filled with cozy pumpkin pie spices like cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves and ginger, as well as plenty of dark chocolate chips.

 

All the best flavors baked into one delicious loaf–this is the perfect treat for the fall and holiday season!

 

Completely eggless, dairy free and packed with flavor, you’re going to love this delicious pumpkin spice banana bread!

Making breads is one of my favorite fall morning activities–not only are they incredibly easy, but they are always so delicious and make the house smell like a bakery all day.

Chocolate Banana and Pumpkin Bread

There’s nothing better than chocolate and pumpkin mixed together into a sweet and moist loaf.

 

They are the best flavors of the season, and when combined with vanilla, banana and pumpkin pie spices, you have an incredibly flavorful and irresistible baked bread!

 

I think dark chocolate is the perfect addition to pumpkin desserts, and it’s also usually always vegan. You can use dairy-free milk chocolate for this recipe if you prefer, either way it will be delicious!

INGREDIENTS

  • Bananas – For best results, use medium-sized bananas that have many brown spots on them.
  • Pumpkin Puree – Be sure not to use pumpkin-pie-filling by mistake!
  • Sugar – You can use white or brown, I like to use half and half for this recipe.
  • Vegetable Oil – Any neutral oil like canola is also fine.
  • Vanilla – I love adding vanilla to fall breads.
  • All-Purpose Flour – You can also use a 1:1 gluten-free flour blend.
  • Pumpkin Pie Spice – You can also make your own with 1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon, and 1/3 teaspoons each of nutmeg, cloves and ginger!
  • Baking Powder & Soda – To help the loaf rise and get fluffy.
  • Salt – To bring out all the flavors and spices!
  • Chocolate Chips – I used dark chocolate bars and roughly chopped them–I love how this looks! You can also use regular dark chocolate chips!

How to Make Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

Making the Eggless Loaf Batter

To make this bread, preheat your oven to 350F, and prepare your loaf pan by adding a sheet of parchment paper–then lightly grease and set aside.

 

In a bowl, peel and add the banana and mash well. Add the pumpkin puree, sugar, vegetable oil and vanilla and whisk until smooth.

 

Add the flour, pumpkin pie spice, baking powder, baking soda and salt and mix until combined, try not to overmix.

 

Using a spatula, add the chocolate chips and fold in–it will be a thick batter.

Baking and Serving Vegan Pumpkin Banana Bread

Pour into prepared baking pan and add a few more chocolate chips to the top. Bake for 50-65 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the loaf comes out clean.

 

Let cool for 15 minutes in the pan, then carefully remove with the parchment paper and place on a cooling rack. 

 

Once it’s just warm to touch, feel free to cut and enjoy–the slices will be cleaner if you let it chill in the fridge for at least 30 minutes first, but a freshly baked loaf is always better in my opinion!

 

STORING

This bread can be stored in an air-tight container for up to four or five days–if your home is very warm I would keep it in the fridge. It’s always best to heat it up before eating, you can also enjoy it with some vegan butter on top, or even some dairy-free vanilla ice cream!
