Fluffy Pumpkin Banana Bread with Cream Cheese Frosting



This pumpkin bread is truly the best! It has the perfect balance of fall, wholesomeness and everything pumpkin! Featuring my favorite vanilla collagen powder from Designer Wellness to increase the protein and really hone in on the vanilla flavors!


This bread is so lovely to have in the fall or winter with a cup of ice cold milk (or almond milk)! And the cream cheese frosting truly is finger licking good. One dose of this and you will certainly be going back for more. I hope you all enjoy this as much as we did!
