Recipe Friday

First off, it's FRIDAY! Woo hoo! I don't know about you, but I am excited it's the weekend

I love trying out new recipes and that is what this weeks recipe is. It smelt so delicious when it was baking!

Pumpkin Banana Nut Bread

Servings: 12 slices (1 loaf) • Serving Size: 1 slice • Calories: 136 • Points: 3 ww points

•Pam baking spray
•3/4 cup unbleached all purpose flour
•1/2 cup white whole wheat flour

•3/4 tsp baking soda
•1/2 tsp salt
•1 tsp cinnamon
•1/2 tsp ground cloves*
•1/2 tsp ground nutmeg*

•3 very ripe medium bananas, mashed
•1/2 cup pureed pumpkin
•2 tbsp butter, softened
•1/2 cup light brown sugar
•1 large egg white
•1 large egg

•1 tsp vanilla extract
•1/4 cup pecans (optional)

Preheat oven to 325°. Grease a 9x5 inch loaf pan with baking spray.
In a medium bowl, combine flour, baking soda, pumpkin spice and salt with a wire whisk. Set aside.

In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar with an electric mixer. Add egg whites, bananas, pumpkin and vanilla, and beat at medium speed until thick. Scrape down sides of the bowl.
Add flour mixture and nuts, then blend at low speed until combined. Do not over mix.

Pour batter into loaf pan and bake on the center rack for 60 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

Let the pan cool at least 20 minutes, bread should be room temperature before slicing.

* 1 tsp of pumpkin spice can be substituted for cloves and nutmeg.


We have no plans for this weekend, which is awesome. The weather is supposed to be wonderful still, so I am sure we will take advantage of it.

What do you have planned for this weekend? Enjoy your weekend!

  1. That sounds so delicious. i have been meaning to make some pumpkin chocolate chip muffins but just haven't gotten aroudn to doing that. Maybe I will tackle that on Sunday.

    I'm staying in tonight. Tomorrow night I am babysitting for a friend. Sunday night I am doing dinner at my brothers. So pretty low key, but with some fun things planned.
