Pumpkin Banana Bread with Chocolate Chips
3 very ripe bananas
⅔ cup Just Jan’s Homestyle Pumpkin Butter
1 ½ cups flour
4 Tbsp Butter, melted and cooled
¼ cup dark brown sugar, packed
1 tsp baking soda
½ tsp baking powder
1 tsp vanilla
½ tsp kosher salt
1 cup chocolate chips divided (¾ cup for the batter and ¼ cup for the top)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
In a large mixing bowl, mash the bananas with a fork. Add the pumpkin butter and egg and either with the paddle attachment in a stand mixer or a fork mix thoroughly. Add the melted butter and vanilla, mix. In a separate bowl, combine the dry ingredients then incorporate them into the wet ingredients until blended. Stir in ¾ cup of the chocolate chips and pour batter into a prepared baking loaf pan. I greased mine with a little coconut oil. Top with the remaining chocolate chips and bake for 1 hour, 10 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
Cool, slice and try not to eat it all in one afternoon!
