This is a great recipe! I followed another reviewer's advice and substituted 3/4 cup applesauce for the oil. I also sprayed with nonstick spray. In addition, I exchanged 1 cup oats ground for 1 cup of the flour per her recommendation. Great idea. We're trying to eat healthy, so added 2 tablespoons of wheat germ and 2 tablespoons of flax seed. Baked for 70 minutes. Very moist and best of all healthy. We ate it all, so I'm making another loaf tomorrow. Thanks, Chef LK.

This bread is WONDERFUL! it tastes like you are biting into a piece of fall! one of the best recipes i have found! it does take a long time to bake, but it is worth the wait! plus your whole house will be filled with a delicious smelling aroma. This is a recipe you will make over and over again!<br/>p.s. i added 1/2 tsp. of cloves and that really gave it a boost!

Definitely yummy and wholesome! I love both pumpkin and banana flavors, so this was a flavor marriage made in heaven. By reading other reviews, I subbed the oil with applesauce, added about 1/4 cup ground flax, and used half sugar and half Splenda. It was sooo moist and delicous! Thanks for this great recipe and one that I can feel good about making often!
