Directions for Making Banana Pumpkin Bread with Chocolate Chips
In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment, add softened butter and sugar. Mix on low until butter and sugar are fully incorporated.
Add eggs one at a time, and mix until incorporated before adding the last egg.
Add pure vanilla extract.
In a separate bowl add bananas and mash them using a fork. Add pumpkin puree, olive oil and mix well. Add banana and pumpkin puree mixture to the sugar, butter, and egg mixture.
In a bowl, add flour, salt, baking soda, baking powder, and the additional spices. Mix well.
In spoonfuls, add the flour mixture a little at a time until all of the flour mixture is fully incorporated.
Fold in chocolate chips and stir.
Using softened butter and a baker's brush, coat the inside of a 9" x 5" bread loaf with butter. Place a cut-to-fit piece of parchment paper in the bottom of the loaf pan, and brush parchment paper with butter as well.
Spoon bread batter into the prepared loaf pan, leave an inch between the batter and the top edge of the loaf pan.
Bake in a preheated 350° F oven for 55-60 minutes. If the top of the bread browns too quickly, tent with aluminum foil.
Insert a toothpick into the middle of the bread if it comes out clean the bread is done.
Remove from the oven and allow to cool.
