Currently snacking on the last slice of this 90 Calorie Healthy Pumpkin Banana Bread as I type this… I’ve been tracking my calories using Lifesum over the past month, and this has been my go-to breakfast, snack, AND dessert because of how filling, but low in fat and calories this is!

It’s been a couple of months into school and sometimes I find myself breaking and down crying for no reason, someone please tell me this is completely normal?! All the exams and essays have been so overwhelming and I’ve gained weight around my lower belly area (which is so frustrating because my abs were finally peeking through this summer)! Hopefully, by eating healthier, sleeping more and taking better care of my needs and wants, my body will be able to handle stress in a better way.

Speaking of needs and wants, I need to whip up another loaf of this 90 Calorie Healthy Pumpkin Banana Bread. Now.

Yum

90 Calorie Pumpkin Banana Bread

My 90 Calorie Pumpkin Banana Bread contains NO ADDED FAT, SUGARS, and only adds up to 89 CALORIES a slice! Tastes so warm and cozy with a handful of toasted walnuts and raisins mixed in 🙂

Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 40 minutes
Additional Time 5 minutes
Total Time 55 minutes

Ingredients

  • 1 banana (100g)
  • 3/4 c all-purpose flour (90g)*
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 tbsp honey
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened pumpkin puree (112g)
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract (optional)
  • cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, pinch of salt to taste (optional)

Instructions

  1. Preheat your conventional oven to 160C/ 320F and line a small loaf pan with parchment paper. If using a convection oven, set your oven temperature at 146C/ 295F
  2. In a large bowl, mash HALF a banana with a fork and mix in pumpkin puree, 3 tbsp of honey, and vanilla extract. Stir in eggs one at a time.
  3. Gently fold in your flour, baking powder, baking soda, spices, and a pinch of salt. 
  4. To spice things up, toss in chopped nuts, raisins, or swirl in nut butter! I sliced the remaining half of my banana into thin strips and placed them on top of the batter. To get a golden, caramelised surface, drizzle the remaining tablespoon of honey over your batter before baking.
  5. Bake until the top is golden brown, around 40 minutes. Remove your loaf and let rest for 5 minutes before topping with nut butter and digging in 🙂 

Notes

*all-purpose (plain) flour can be replaced with oat, spelt, and whole wheat flour

mix in ideas: toasted nuts, dried fruit, diced apples, nut butter, chocolate chips...

    1. Hi Karen, thanks for popping by! AP flour stands for “all-purpose flour”, or “plain flour” like this one …I’ll definitely make sure to clarify all abbreviations in my future posts 😊
      P.S. Feel free to substitute the AP flour for whole wheat flour or oat flour when making this recipe!

    1. I don’t see why not! Try replacing all the pumpkin with a large banana (so 2 in total) and adding extra liquid if needed (milk, oil, nut butter, yoghurt) because bananas contain less moisture than pumpkin (approx 72% water to 90% in pumpkins). The loaf should taste even sweeter and richer in flavour😊

      P.S. Do let me know how it turns…I’d love to feature your take on this recipe!

  1. Every day is a good day for pumpkin banana bread! Am definitely going to make the bread this weekend!
    Thanks for adding the quantities also in metric, very useful for when you live in the Netherlands like I do ;-).

    1. Hahaha I couldn’t agree more Judith, please save me a slice!
      P.S. so glad you found the metric measurements useful… they’re also great for lazy people like me who hate doing the dishes 😉

  2. Just made it and it’s ridiculously delicious! Just can’t stop eating it! It doubt I can save a slice for you, sorry but not sorrry ;-)! Mine did not rise as nice as yours though, not sure what I did wrong, but if definitely did not effect the taste and/or flavor!

    1. Yay!!!! So glad you were a fan! Regarding the rise, I’d try mixing in 1/2 tsp of vinegar after all the ingredients are combined, but my loaf pan is quite small lol. Would love to see
      some pictures if you ever decide to make this again 😘
