Making this pumpkin gingerbread is my fist attempt at Christmas, it always helps to fill the house with the delicious smell of pumpkin, ginger, cloves and cinnamon!

In the midst of moving and being busy with work, I haven’t had the chance to get into the holiday spirit!  We don’t even have our tree up yet and Christmas cards probably won’t happen for us this year (first world problems).  I’m sorry to all those sending lovely cards, I appreciate receiving them! I promise I will be on my A-Game next year and reciprocate the kindness!

This recipe doesn’t use oil or butter, instead it uses pumpkin to create a nice, light and fluffy texture.  For a vegan option, use flax eggs in place of regular eggs.  (1 flax egg = 1 tablespoon flax meal + 3 tablespoons warm water, let sit for 10 minutes until a gel is formed)  Using flax in place of eggs may create a more dense bread.
