I love to make banana bread from this as well. I just cook it for 45-50 minutes instead.

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Bread

(Hillary Warner)
I just use a large can of pumpkin instead of measuring out 3 cups. This recipe makes A LOT of bread. When I need to make a lot of deliveries, I always make this because I get at least 10-12 mini loaves and 1 big loaf out of it.
