This healthy pumpkin banana bread is a fall treat that must be on your baking list.

Made with greek yogurt (protein!) and no oil (thanks banana!), this guiltless bread not only tastes delicious, but is good for you too.

Pumpkin banana bread is great for a snack, breakfast, or even dessert.

While I love a good classic piece of Pumpkin Bread, sometimes you just need something that is a little lighter to satisfy that morning pumpkin sweet tooth!

Banana bread is a favorite of mine, so I decided to make a fall themed version.

How to make Pumpkin Banana Bread without oil

Maple syrup, greek yogurt, and canned pumpkin add the moistness to this recipe without the use of butter or oil.

You wouldn’t even guess that this was made healthier.

I love making desserts like this one as they are healthy enough to eat as a snack or for breakfast!

Can I use a different flour?

Yes! You should easily be able to substitute regular flour or an equal amount of cup for cup gluten free flour.

Can this pumpkin banana bread be made into muffins?

Yes! Just use parchment paper liners, or spray regular ones with cooking spray.

Bake for around 15-20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.

Can I add chocolate chips to this recipe?

That sounds like a delicious addition!

Some mini ones sprinkled on top too would be so good.

Snacks are a weak point for me.

If I don’t have a healthy snack prepped ahead I will usually just grab something packaged.

Recipes like this one (or my pumpkin cream cheese swirl muffins) are perfect as a grab and go snack when I need one.

This bread lasted exactly two days in our house before it was all gone!

There’s just something so satisfying about eating a big slice of bread, am I right?

Homemade bread makes your house smell amazing!

If I haven’t convinced you yet, I will add that this recipe is made in just ONE bowl.

Simple, healthy, and oh so delicious.

Thanks for the recipe! I am always looking for healthier snacks for the family. My 3 year old just asked for a second one! I subbed honey for the maple syrup and made muffins instead. (20 min was perfect!) I added some cloves and cardamom for fun! Great base muffin — fluffy and moist and lightly sweet.

Hi Deb,

I do not provide nutritional information for my recipes, as it will vary based on the specific brands you buy as well as the substitutions that you make. You can use a calculator like this one: if you want the exact calories. Hope that helps!

Can you use regular flour? Or coconut flour? I have both of those, but I don’t have whole wheat pastry flour! :)

Regular flour should work great!
