Pumpkin Banana Bread:
I’ve always loved baking bread — especially with yummy mix ins to enjoy! This banana pumpkin bread recipe from scratch is not only delicious, it’s versatile.
You can make it with whole wheat, you could add nuts, you could make them with chocolate, with coconut oil or with applesauce. You could also easily turn this into pumpkin and banana muffins!
Sometimes I make this without the glaze (I’ll share that recipe with you in a second) and we smear a slab of butter on. Either way is so delicious.
This yummy pumpkin banana bread recipe is brought to you in partnership with Mirum.
Even though this is one my absolute favorite recipes to make each year, I’ve avoided it for awhile now because pumpkin can give me heartburn. It’s such a drag!
Awhile back, I realized I was skipping some of my favorite foods, even once a year treats, because I knew they would make me so uncomfortable, they just weren’t worth eating. I’ve got a solution now, though, that means I don’t need to skip my favorite foods again: Up & Up Omeprazole Orally Disintegrating Tablets. And I love that it’s an orally disintegrating tablet so I don’t have to worry about swallowing a pill.
Up & Up Omeprazole ODT at Target is designed to treat symptoms of frequent heartburn. It’s an easy-to-take option which melts on your tongue; no need for water.
