You guys, I did it. Last year I started with the pumpkin in September, which was uncharacteristically early for me. This year, I cracked open my first can of pumpkin in August. Yep, August. And I’m not sorry.

I made three recipes with the one can of pumpkin – this gluten free pumpkin banana bread, chocolate chip pumpkin muffins (which I’ll share with you soon), and some pumpkin spice coffees just for the fun of it.

I started working on this recipe last fall when I had some extra opened cans of pumpkin to use up after Thanksgiving. Since I always have over-ripe bananas (they’re seriously the bane of my existence), I thought I’d combine the two and make an easy breakfast bread.

Got overripe bananas but aren’t feeling the pumpkin yet? Try my double chocolate banana bread or gluten free banana oat muffins, you won’t regret it. If you’re ready for full-on pumpkin, my pumpkin chocolate chip bread or gluten free pumpkin muffins should hit the spot.

You could even my gluten free pumpkin bread – that one is new to the blog and it’s a crazy delicious classic loaf.

This gluten free pumpkin banana bread is so good. I love a good schmear of cream cheese on it. If cream cheese isn’t your thing, butter will do just fine. I’ve recently discovered lactose free cream cheese which we’re loving SO much more than the dairy free cream cheese.

Sometimes, it’s hard to really get a good non-dairy sub for something. While the dairy free cream cheese we usually use isn’t bad, it’s just not real cream cheese. Any way you eat it, it’s up to you. And it’s fantastic. Enjoy!

What People are Saying About This Pumpkin Banana Bread

Very moist and delicious. Will most definitely make again and again.

Delicious! Cooked a bit longer (70 minutes), maybe because I added a bit extra pumpkin. Best gluten free recipe I’ve tried since my kids’ celiac diagnoses. Thank you!

Loved it and it was even more delicious the next day. The only change I made was I used unsweetened macadamia milk instead of coconut milk. Excellent recipe!

Honestly so good and perfect for fall. I’m in love.
By far the best gluten free bread recipe i’ve ever tried. and that does say a lot.
Seriously the best banana bread I have ever had. You’d never know it’s gf, and everyone who has tried it when I make it wants the recipe.
So delicious! Raised beautifully! I used 2 bananas. This is now my favorite banana bread.
Fantastic! I love this and so does everyone in my house.
I make this recipe into muffins……so good!!!

Gluten Free Pumpkin Banana Bread

Yield: 12 slices
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 55 minutes
Total Time: 1 hour 10 minutes

Fall flavor meets banana bread in this gluten free pumpkin banana bread. It’s the perfect way to use up old bananas and open cans of pumpkin.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups gluten free flour blend (see notes)
  • 1 teaspoon xanthan gum (omit if your flour blend contains it)
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts (optional)
  • 1/3 cup avocado oil (or canola oil)
  • 2 large eggs, room temperature
  • 2/3 cup milk (or unsweetened coconut milk beverage)
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin purée
  • 1/2 cup mashed banana (about 1 medium-large)
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and spray a 9x5 inch loaf pan with non-stick spray then line it with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the gluten free flour, xanthan gum, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, granulated sugar, and brown sugar. Break up any large brown sugar clumps, and stir in the walnuts.
  3. In a medium bowl, whisk together the oil, eggs, milk, pumpkin, banana, and vanilla.
  4. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix until just combined. Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan and bake at 350 degrees for 55-65 minutes or until a tester comes out clean.

Notes

I use my Nightshade Free Gluten Free Flour Mix in this recipe but this flour blend works great too. You can use a 1:1 flour blend, just omit the xanthan gum if your blend already contains it.

Hi Sharon! Is there any way for me to replace the refined sugars used in this recipe with a natural sweetener like honey or maple syrup?

I made this quick bread this afternoon because I had bananas to use up and leftover pumpkin after making homemade, paleo pumpkin spice coffee creamer. I made a few minor changes. First, I used maple syrup and chocolate chips for sweetness didn't add nuts because we didn't have any, and no milk was added which I felt wasn't needed with four bananas, oil, and a can of pumpkin. In spite of these modifications, this bread came out delicious! It rose so high that part of this bread got caught on the top of the oven. I baked it for 50 minutes which was perfect because it isn't dry. Thank you for this recipe!

Can you use perfect flour blend in this recipe, it's all I have. But this recipe sounds amazing

Can you use almond flour for this recipe or casava flour? That is all I have at home at the moment. Thanks!

No, sorry. This won't work with just almond flour or cassava flour. This recipe was developed to work with a rice flour / starch blend. If you only have almond flour or cassava flour, you might want to look for a paleo or grain free recipe.
