Chocolate Chip Walnut Banana Pumpkin Bread

Sometimes we don't realize we have everything we need to make great food at home. I've been eyeing the bananas on the counter for days.  Every day that passes they continue to ripen. I keep saying, I have to make banana bread! I finally did. 

I also saw a can of pumpkin puree and thought that this would a perfect combination. And I was right. This is such a rich, moist and festive cake. You've gotta try it.
