Mmmm, (Gluten-Free) Banana Bread. I’ve been searching for a butter-free, less added sugar banana bread and saw this version on Minimalist Baker.

Unlike the other two versions, I used a blender (a food processor works as well) to seamlessly incorporate the pumpkin purée and effortlessly combine all the ingredients. The consistency resembles your more traditional pancakes, but is still packed with all the flavor you’d expect from a fall brunch.
