Chocolate Chip Banana and Pumpkin Bread

Chocolate Chip Banana and Pumpkin Bread

I love new recipes that come to life using leftovers.  Doesn’t it feel great to clean out the fridge (or pantry) AND enjoy something new?  Today’s recipe came about just like that.  I had some overripe bananas and some leftover pumpkin purée that absolutely needed to be finished, quickly!  So, I mixed them up to make a banana and pumpkin bread and added some chocolate chips and pumpkin spice to the mix, to make it more appealing for my kids.  It was a success and they were happy to eat it and even take it to school in their lunchboxes.  This bread also freezes beautifully, just slice it up and wrap the individual slices in cling wrap and pop it in the freezer.  It’s a quick and easy recipe to keep handy for when you get tired of your usual banana bread!  Enjoy!
