Pumpkin Banana Muffins

October means all things pumpkin, and I can’t get enough. It’s such a versatile, delicious ingredient, loaded with vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants.

Making Pumpkin Banana Muffins

As delicious as these are, they couldn’t be simpler to make. Mix them up, bake, and store in an airtight container in the fridge to enjoy all week!

To make these, you’ll need:

  • Canned pumpkin (unsweetened, plain)
  • Bananas (the riper the better – the ones that are super brown and spotted? They’re sweeter and perfect for baking!)
  • Nonfat greek yogurt (I use Fage 0%)
  • Maple syrup to sweeten them and vanilla extract for flavor
  • Salt, baking soda, pumpkin pie spice, all purpose flour for your dry ingredients
  • Eggs to bind it all together
  • Chocolate chips for a little extra sweetness
Pumpkin Banana Muffins

In one bowl, mix up all of your dry ingredients and set aside. In another bowl, Mash your bananas well, and mix them with the pumpkin, yogurt, eggs, maple syrup, and vanilla. Mix your wet and dry ingredients together, and fold in the chocolate chips last. Pour into a lined muffin pan (I use silicone baking cups for minimal mess) and bake for 15-20 minutes at 350F. Let cool and enjoy!
