Units Scale
  • 1/2 cup mashed banana
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup
  • 1 egg
  • 3 tablespoons avocado oil (or other neutral oil)
  • 3 tablespoons Greek yogurt (whole milk is best)
  • 2 tablespoons milk (both dairy or non-dairy will work)
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
  • 3/4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt


  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F and prepare a muffin tin with 8 paper liners
  2. In a large mixing bowl stir together the mashed banana, pumpkin puree, maple syrup, egg, avocado oil, egg, Greek yogurt, and milk until well combined
  3. Add the flour, pumpkin pie spice, baking powder, baking soda, and salt to the wet ingredients and use a rubber spatula to gently fold until JUST combined. Do not overmix!
  4. Take your prepared muffin tin and fill the paper liners almost full. You want the batter to be just below the top of the liner
  5. Place the muffin tin into the preheated oven and bake for 21-23 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean
  6. Take them out of the oven and transfer to a wire rack to cool completely


  • Use room temperature ingredients
  • Make sure you're using pumpkin puree and NOT pumpkin pie filling
  • Overripe bananas are best
  • Mash the banana first and then measure it
  • Don't overmix the batter
  • If you have time, rest the batter at least 10 minutes before baking
  • Cooking time may vary between ovens
  • Let cool completely before enjoying or they will stick to the liners
  • Store leftovers in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 4 days
