Found this recipe in a magazine that came in the mail. This is made with olive oil, which in comparison to butter, is 25% less fattening. Posted here for safekeeping - haven't tried yet.

I substituted King Arthur gluten-free multi-purpose flour and made this for a tea with friends. It turned out great, once I let it cook long enough. Very tasty, moist and delicious. I did use applesauce with a little oil rather than the oil. Am already making this again and adding cranberries for a pretty holiday bread.
This bread was yummy, even though i made a few changes to make it even more healthy it came out great!!!
This is a very nice pumpkin bread recipe; it's not too sweet, and the spices aren't overpowering, like most pumpkin bread recipes are. It's just a great blend of flavors. I also really like the fact that it is made with extra virgin olive oil, which makes it a little more healthy.
