This healthy chocolate chunk banana pumpkin bread is a delicious fall treat that can be enjoyed for breakfast, dessert, or as a snack. Made with just one bowl, it's easy to whip up any time! (dairy-free, nut-free, vegetarian)


  • 2 medium very ripe bananas
  • 1 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 3 tbsp neutral oil (I use avocado oil)
  • 1 1/2 cups white whole wheat flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 3/4 cup dark chocolate chunks or chips


  1. Heat oven to 325°F. Lightly grease or spray a loaf pan with oil or line with parchment.
  2. In a large bowl, mash bananas. Whisk in pumpkin, brown sugar, eggs, and oil.
  3. Add flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg. Stir until moistened, careful not to over mix. Gently stir in chocolate chunks.
  4. Pour batter into prepared pan. Bake 50-60 min, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  5. Remove from oven and cool 10 minutes before turning out onto a cooling rack to cool completely.


  • Use dairy-free chocolate chunks to make this recipe dairy-free.
  • This recipe is best in a metal pan. Ceramic and glass pans do not bake as evenly and may take 5-10 minutes longer.
