  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup white whole wheat flour
  • 1 and 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/4 cup light brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 3 overripe medium sized bananas, mashed
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin spice cookie butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  • Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. Generously grease a standard 9"x5" loaf pan and set aside.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together the flours, baking powder, baking soda, salt and pumpkin pie spice. Set aside.
  • In a medium sized bowl, beat together the egg and sugars until well blended. Add the mashed bananas, applesauce, cookie butter and vanilla extract.
  • Transfer the banana mixture into the large bowl with the dry ingredients and gently fold until just incorporated. Do not over mix.
  • Pour the batter into your prepared loaf pan and bake in your preheated oven for 55-60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.


Leftover bread (ha!) should be stored in an airtight container at room temperature and will keep for several days.
