  • 3 very ripe bananas, mashed
  • 1 large egg room temp is best
  • 2/3 c pumpkin
  • 1 1/2 c flour
  • 5 T butter melted and then cooled
  • 1/3 c brown sugar
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1 ⅓ c chocolate chips (I used dark chocolate)


  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • In a medium bowl, mash bananas well. Add in egg and whisk together. Mix in butter, vanilla, pumpkin and brown sugar until smooth.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk together flour, salt, baking soda and baking powder. Pour the dry ingredients into the wet and stir.
  • Fold in 1 c chocolate chips.
  • Pour batter into a well greased bread pan and top with remaining chocolate chips.
  • Bake for 45-55 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Allow to cool before serving.


  • I used chocolate chunks but chips will work just fine. My grocery has these amazing dark chocolate chunks and I love them, but so not necessary if you can't find any.
  • Please make sure you have fresh baking powder and baking soda. If these aren't fresh or past expiration, that can impact the success of your pumpkin bread.
  • More chocolate chips are ALWAYS ok.
