Thanks for checking Doug.   It is hard to copy from video to paper without making an error.  I checked to see what I missed and found it.   I didn't have enough cinnamon which I'm glad you caught because I love cinnamon.  I'm going to be making the crustless pumpkin pie, pumpkin bread and pumpkin cookies and taking them to my sister's for Thanksgiving dinner on Sunday.  There will be 17 of us for dinner.  As I mentioned in a previous post, my brother-in-law started FTS 1 week before I did and my sister and niece can't have gluten, so there will be lots of "safe" choices for dinner.

Doug, my pumpkin bread is in the oven right now, almost ready to come out.  They don't look like they have raised any in the pans.  I made the 2 large loaves.  Your mini loaves looked like they raised in the pans.  I do have to say my kitchen does smell wonderful.  Hopefully it tastes good even if they look squatty.

Well it went SOMETHING like this: (measurements are approximate of course...it's ME, remember?) And, I won't have a carb count at the end...so Beebs...just walk on by! LOL

1 1/2 cups of almond flour
1/2 cup soy flour
1/2 cup xylitol
2 tsp baking powder
pumpkin pie spice (no clue how much I put in, I shook the shaker right into it)
2 eggs
1 can of organic pumpkin
about 1/8 cup vegetable oil (don't know if I really needed it or not, but they sure were moist)

Mix all ingredients above and put in cupcake papers in the cupcake cooking pan thingy (Beebsish). Top each cupcake with a few sprinkles of chopped walnuet and bake at 350 degrees for about 25 minutes. Check the center with a toothpick or other sharp object thingy.

Yes, it was very tasty, although mine was only 1 1/2 inches high.  I also made the pumpkin cookies today and they were good too, although I didn't have to leave them in the oven the full 20 minutes.

Did you use soy flour or almond meal? Are you sure your leavening agents are within date (baking powder and baking soda)? Finally, what altitude are you at?
