    I had two bananas and an open can of pumpkin to use up so this recipe was perfect! I used pumpkin pie spice instead of ginger, allspice and nutmeg then added some dark chocolate chips. I would definitely make these again.

    Good morning, everyone. I received a new bookazine as a prize for being runner-up in a contest. It is Pumpkin Cookbook. Checking out all the recipes, I spied a recipe in which I had all the ingredients on hand. It is Pumpkin Banana Muffins. I grabbed a skirt hangar with which to clip the magazine while I cooked. I just took these out of the oven and they are marvelous!! Definitely a 5-star recipe! Volunteer Field Editor
