Pumpkin Banana Bread

Fall means lots of pumpkin treats!  I love baking with pumpkin, so I picked up 2 cans during my last grocery trip with plans to do something with them this weekend.  I had 3 overly ripe bananas I needed to use up, so I decided to try a twist on regular ole banana bread and make some pumpkin banana bread.  This was so delicious!
