Peek a boo....

I love it!  The holidays are finally here, okay most days have some celebration to be found...BUT I love when the holidays that Hallmark and the calendars claim come rolling in the year.  Pumpkins are covering the island, we got lost in a giant corn maze, and of course the baking has begun!

Other than baking the pumpkin seeds, here is a little island twist on your pumpkin bread...

  • 1 1/4 cup flour (any kind depending on your diet)
  • 3/4 cup oats
    1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3 or 4 shakes of pumpkin pie spice
    sprinkle of salt
    1 cup sugar *you might want more, or use maple syrup or agave
    1 egg
    3/4 cup pumpkin puree
    3-4 bananas, very ripe, mashed
    2 tablespoons yogurt
  •  1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  •  1/2 cup coconut shreds
  • 1/2 cup macnuts
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips or carob chips (whatever your diet eats)
  • 1/2 cup chewy gingers 
Mix the dry ingredients on one bowl and the wet ingredients in another.  Add the dry to the wet, mix well, bake *350 for about 35-40 minutes.  It will be YUMMY!
