Mmmmm....my first of many pumpkin yummies for the fall season! It made the whole house smell wonderful! I made this vegan by using Ener-G Egg Replacer instead of eggs, and also made it gluten-free by using Bob's Red Mill Gluten-Free All Purpose Flour. The recipe held up really well to my modifications. The oatmeal and flax seed gave it a wonderful nutty flavor and texture. Instead of pumpkin pie spice, I just used cinnamon. I might double the spice next time. I poured half the batter in a loaf pan and half in a muffin tin. The muffins were done in about 25 minutes. I found that the bread and muffins were delicious served warm with margarine and cinnamon sugar sprinkled on top. Made for Veg*n Swap 14.

I really like this recipe, it feels more healthier than banana bread. Plus it's a nice alternative to use up extra bananas. I don't have a loaf pan so I baked them in cupcake pan instead. I baked w/ cupcake liners (to save on clean up) but I would recommend spraying it w/ baking spray instead. A lot of it gets stuck to the liners thought that doesn't stop me from eating a last bit :)

I make whole-wheat, low-fat or no-fat quick breads quite a bit. I was disappointed overall with this bread. It was quite dense and dry. The flavor was okay. I do not plan to make this recipe again.
