Can you substitute bananas for pumpkin puree?

I have a pumpkin bread mix I'd love to make, but I can't find pumpkin in stores at the moment (understandably). Can I substitute banana? Thank you!

Lexi -
Wendy has already answered.
But a nutritionist/cookbook author named Nancy Clark had a similar idea and provides another 48 possible replacements. Here's a recipe.

Yes, applesauce would also work.
