Friends, let’s break in autumn today with this amazing Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Banana Bread. A little warning, make sure you have enough people in the house to enjoy this, because you may just eat it all.

Or, better yet, take a few slices to your neighbor! (You may have tried my Pumpkin Date Bread or No Bake Pumpkin Cookies – so good!~)

BEST Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

We’re so happy it’s officially almost pumpkin season.

How to bake banana bread

This Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Banana Bread is oh, so good! Don’t forget that every oven heats up differently, and you may have to adapt the baking time, depending on whether you have a large pan, or you’re putting the batter in 2 smaller pans.

Always check the center with a toothpick to see if it comes out clean (the bread is done), or if the batter is sticking to the toothpick (the bread needs more baking time).

You can even use 4 very small pans, and give a few loaves away.

Or freeze for a rainy day :)

Coughlin Family Hosmer Lake

Hosmer Lake, Oregon

But first–summer in Oregon is my favorite time. I just told Paul, give me a couple more months of summer!

The sun shines 300 days a year, bright blue, stunning skies here in central Oregon. So a few weeks ago, we went on a family kayak and canoe adventure to Hosmer Lake, about 30 minutes from our house.

Today I want to share a few pictures with you. Of course Alder came with us.

We enjoyed a super easy picnic (wraps, fruits, cookies, chips, salsa – yum!).

Right now we’re enjoying hot days and cool nights. We’ve learned to be gracious with nature and go with the flow. We are so blessed to have 4 gorgeous seasons to enjoy, aren’t we?

Give Thanks

We are blessed to see the mountains and sunsets. To sit out on our deck (or in the water in our canoes) and watch the sun go down.

Another day to give thanks for so many blessings in life.

Every day is a day to give thanks!

And share food and our tables with people we love, or who we are yet to love.

Tasty Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

Hospitality comes in all kinds of packages. Big and little, it can be a slice of warm Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Banana Bread on a paper napkin, or a loaf wrapped up in a kitchen towel, or served at a small dinner party. Hospitality can be an EPIC Charcuterie Board that you share for a gathering.

Whatever it is, I continue to pray that our family gives out before taking in.
