A simple Autumn treat my kid will actually eat

I found this recipe recently in an issue of Parents Magazine. Levi Loves it. Jonathan begs for it. and it has 5 ingredients. Sounds like a win, win, win.

Oh, and it's cheap. Make that a win, win, win, win.

Shortcut Pumpkin Bread
Yellow cake mix (we use Best Choice/super-saver brand which is dairy/soy free)
The eggs and oil the mix calls for
One cup pureed pumpkin
One cup mashed banana

Mix all ingredients together well
Pour into a greased loaf pan
bake at 375 for 50 minutes

Presto! Pumpkin bread.

Now, for the fine print - I actually add chocolate chips to mine. Call me a rebel, but if you want the truth they come by Jonathan's insistence. So don't blame me.

We love chocolate chip pumpkin bread! Mine doesn't call for cake mix but that does make it easier...
