Based on Grandma's Healthier 1-Bowl Banana Bread

Author: Steph Jenkins
  • 1 1/2 cups flour (all-¬≠purpose, whole wheat, or spelt)
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 cup leftover pumpkin or sweet potato, cooked, peeled, and mashed (or butternut squash)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup oil or melted butter
  • 1/2 cup honey or maple syrup (or 1 cup sugar)
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon (or pumpkin spice)
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Combine the dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl.

  3. Add the wet ingredients to the bowl and stir well.

  4. Pour batter into a greased loaf pan.
  5. Bake for 1 hour, until a toothpick or knife inserted in the center comes out clean.
  6. Allow to cool thoroughly before serving (trust me - it tastes even better). Tastes even better with a slather of butter!
