Ryan Seacrest and his girlfriend are cooking up some fun in the kitchen!

On Tuesday morning's Live with Kelly and Ryan, Seacrest's lady love, Shayna Taylor, made her first guest appearance on the show for a "Banana Bread Bake Off."

When Seacrest introduced Taylor, he was practically giddy with the news.

“Today’s contender is a personal chef, a graduate of the Art Institute Culinary School and in my opinion, the greatest cook in town. [I’m] proud and excited to have her here,” he said.

The cooking challenge arose from a lot of "smack talk," according to Ripa, over who could bake the "healthiest, most delicious banana bread": Taylor or executive producer Michael Gelman's wife, Laurie.

Seacrest assured Taylor not to be nervous during the segment, telling her she was "a natural on national television." She also referred to Seacrest as "babe" as they worked together on her bread recipe.

Guilt free banana bread 1 cup organic freshly grinned almond butter (unsalted)  1 1/2 cup mashed very ripe bananas (about 3 bananas) 1/2 cup organic pumpkin puree (I prefer homemade* see recipe below)  2 whole organic eggs 1/2 teaspoon baking soda 1/4 teaspoon fine Celtic salt or sea salt 1 tablespoon organic Pumpkin Pie Spice*  1 1/2 teaspoons of organic alcohol free vanilla extract  1 teaspoon organic cinnamon  Optional* 2 tablespoons organic agave or maple syrup  Optional* dark chocolate chips(no cane sugar or unsweetened ) For crumble topping:  Organic banana chips (home made or store bought). Very chopped  1/3 cup very chopped walnuts 1/3 cup very chopped pecans *want to make a good crumble, so make sure they are chopped into smaller pieces ! * 1 1/2 teaspoons organic alcohol free vanilla extract  1/2 tablespoon organic coconut oil (melted) 1 Teaspoon organic pumpkin pie spice  Optional* 1 tablespoon organic agave, honey or maple syrup *Note: You can make your own Pumpkin Pie Spice by using 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon, 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger, 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg, and 1 teaspoon ground cloves instead. Directions: For crumble topping:  Put chopped pecans, walnuts and banana chips into a bowl- add a touch of melted coconut oil, vanilla extra, pumpkin pie spice, and agave. Toss until evenly coated. Set aside Preheat your oven to 350F In a medium bowl, combine all of the ingredients and mix until a smooth batter is formed, folding in the chocolate chips last, if desired. Pour mixture into a non stick bread pan. Then add crumble evenly over the top! Bake for 40 to 60 minutes at 350F use the old tooth pick trick! It is easy to check a cake or bread for doneness by using the toothpick test. Just stick a toothpick  into the center of your banana bread, If there is wet batter still on the toothpick , it needs more time in the oven. If it comes out clean, your cake is done! Let cool in pan- then remove & enjoy :) #bananabattle @livekellyandryan @shaynateresetaylor
