~Recipe Monday – Pumpkin Flax Quickbread

Instead of pumpkin pie why not change it up and make some pumpkin bread?  Why not try this healthy flax quickbread from Allrecipes?  I bet this not only tastes delicious but also smells wonderful while baking.

Thanks for this recipe! I just read that you can use Flaxseed Meal in place of eggs (which my grandson is highly allergic), so this will be my first baking recipe with no eggs. I've got a pumpkin on my porch just waiting for Halloween to be over, and I'll be trying out your recipe. Thanks for sharing.
