Delicious! I made this today and it's almost all gone, which is quite a feat in a household where only I am GF and the others shy away from any of my "funny stuff". I ended up using about 3/4 cup pumpkin and 1/2 cup apple puree because I didn't have quite enough pumpkin, and used dairy free margarine and it was still excellent. I think next time I'll add some walnuts and perhaps some rum soaked raisins... but perhaps not! Definitely going in my Make Frequently pile.
This is definitely a good GF Banana Pumpkin bread recipe. To make it more on the pumpkin flavor side I added 1 1/2c of pumpkin puree and jus t 1/2c of the banana. I just went GF and I noticed a lot of breads have a gritty after taste. This one no so much. I think if I were to experience with a little bit of xantham gum that might fix it. Thanks for the recipe. I have a lot of pumpkin left over from the Fall to use up :D

This is a picture of my boyfriend and me at my company's fancy holiday party in December 2007. I graduated with my BA in musical theatre a few years ago. I'm now living in the big city doing the 9-5 thing while I try to make this acting thing work. Theatre and singing (and my boyfriend!) are what fire me up, but cooking is what chills me out. I love to come home and try a new recipe. In August 2006 I was diagnosed with a gluten allergy, and I've also been diabetic since the age of 14 so food can sometimes be a challenge; but I love experimenting in the kitchen and finding new options. <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/PAC08Main.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="http://i196.photobucket.com/albums/aa130/nowsonexitmusic/bumbag5.gif?t=1211686551"> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/PACfall08partic.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/IWasAdoptedfall08.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="http://i38.photobucket.com/albums/e110/flower753/Food/my3chefsnov2008.jpg"> <img src="http://i250.photobucket.com/albums/gg271/MrsTeny/Permanent%20Collection/PACSpring09Iwasadopted.jpg"> <img src="http://i250.photobucket.com/albums/gg271/MrsTeny/Permanent%20Collection/PACSpring09Participation.jpg">
