Pumpkin Oat Bread

Who ever said pumpkin should not be served after Thanksgiving, has never tried my pumpkin oatmeal bread! This stuff is amazing, and simple to make. Try it either as loaves, or you can make it into muffins as well. Just watch the bake time for muffins, about 25-30 minutes.

2 cups whole wheat flour
1 cup rolled oat
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground cloves
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 1/2 cups brown sugar
4 eggs
2 cups pumpkin puree , fresh if possible
2/3 cup vegetable oil
2 teaspoons vanilla

Preheat oven to 350. Grease the bottoms of 2 loaf pans (8 1/2 x 4 1/2 x 2 1/2). In a large mixing bowl, combine all of the dry ingredients, except the sugar. In a smaller bowl, combine sugar and all of the wet ingredients. Mix well until sugar is dissolved. Pour wet mixture into dry mixture. Stir to combine, but don't over mix. Pour into prepared loaf pans.
Bake 45-55 minutes, or until a test pick comes out clean. Cool in pans 5 minutes on cooling rack. Then, remove from pans and cool completely -- if it lasts that long!
