Fall is here and I can’t think of a better way to celebrate than eating some pumpkin flavored anything! The trouble is that pumpkin pie can be hard to come by or fill you up with way too many calories to get that pumpkin fix! For a limited time Yoplait is offering seasonal flavors of Yoplait at Walmart! So whether you are looking for a quick whipped yogurt or an apple crisp yogurt; Walmart has you covered. This yogurt really hits the spot, but if you’re looking to take it a step further I came up with this banana pumpkin cake to give you a healthier snacking option before you reach for the closest pie!
I thought it would be fun to take a fun spin on the classic banana bread and add a little flavor of pumpkin, cinnamon, and chocolate chips. This was super fun and easy to whip up and my daughter loved making it with me in the kitchen. This cake comes out tasting super moist and delicious with a lot less calories that a traditional pumpkin pie would have. You’re welcome! 🙂

1/3 cup sugar or Agave Syrup
1 teaspoon baking powder
