  2. I need this in my life! This sounds totally delish. I have a few cans of pumpkin I haven’t used up yet and this is at the top of my list to make!

  3. I don’t think I’ve had a dessert or bread that incorporated pumpkin and banana together. I wouldn’t mind seeing how that tastes.

  4. This looks amazing! I bet my picky little eaters would actually try this recipe! Thanks for sharing!

  10. I wish I would have seen this yesterday! I made banana bread last night, and I was wanting to make it different somehow, but I couldn’t think of what to change up. So I went to Pinterest, which just led me down a rabbit hole, until I finally decided to just make boring old banana bread. But this…. this will be my next banana bread for sure!

  14. Yeah, that looks pretty much amazing! I never thought of drizzling peanut butter on it! What an awesome idea! My son has been asking me to make banana bread for a few days, now if we can just keep the bananas long enough to ripen so I can make it!
