‘Tis that time of year. I am sneezing, manly sounding, and now I have the headache.
I only get bad headaches with the weather goes from one extreme to another. :) For example, it was only 50° on Saturday and then today it was 82°. Lovely. I’m very glad to have the heat back, but my head feel like it is going to explode!! That also could be from all the studying I have been doing! ;)
Regardless of the warmer weather, I am definitely in the mood for fall foods. Soup beans, chili, stews, and comfort foods have been dominating our house. My favorite fall food, however, is pumpkin! I love it. I love pumpkin in just about anything and everything.
I’m working on a new recipe for pumpkin pasta sauce… it’s gonna be good!
My newest creation was a spin off my Almost Grandma’s Banana Bread. I turned it into Pumpkin Banana Bread!
This is the best pumpkin banana bread I have ever made!
Pumpkin Banana Bread
- 2 bananas, mashed
- 1/4 cup stevia baking blend (or 1/3 to 1/2 cup brown sugar)
- 3/4 cup pumpkin
- 1/4 cup milk (I used unsweetened almond)
- 1 cup whole wheat flour
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1/4- 1/2 cup pecans or walnuts (opt)
Mix all “dry” ingredients and slowly mix into banana mixture. Put in greased loaf pan or muffin pan.
Top with peanut butter, honey, and chopped bananas for an almost sinfully good breakfast. Or just grab them on your way out the door on days you are running late…. I wouldn’t know anything about that! ;) It would also make a nutritious afternoon snack…. I wouldn’t know anything about that either…
What are your favorite fall foods?
