31 Days of Pumpkin, Day 3
I was going to make a roasted pumpkin soup today but does everyone realize how ridiculously hot it is here? The temperature thing on my car said 97 degrees today. At 10:45am. No matter how many little pumpkins and gourds and scarecrow things and chrysanthemums I bring into the house, it still feels like the middle of July. And I do not feel like roasting a pumpkin in the oven in the middle of July.
So I made banana zucchini bread instead. Pretty simple. Most recipes are the same-- grated zucchini, ripe bananas, and applesauce, etc. Except instead of applesauce I used puréed pumpkin of course.
I actually followed this recipe from Post Punk Kitchen. Swap out the applesauce for pumpkin like I did for a festive fall treat! (I made muffins instead of a loaf.) I also used coconut oil instead of canola and coconut sugar.
