  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees, and grease a 9X5 inch loaf pan. Set aside.
  • If using the flax eggs, mix together your 2 tablespoons ground flax seeds and 6 tablespoons water, and set aside. (otherwise skip this step)
  • In a medium bowl, mix together your flour, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon. Set aside.
  • In a large bowl beat together your brown sugar and butter. You can use a stand mixer or hand mixer.
  • Mix until well blended, approx one minute.
  • Add your flax eggs (or 2 eggs), beat in.
  • With a large spoon, stir in your banana, pumpkin, and vanilla.
  • Slowly add in your dry ingredients. Your batter will be thick, but try not to over mix. Set aside.
  • Mix together your cinnamon sugar swirl mixture in a small bowl.
  • Spoon half the banana pumpkin batter into your greased loaf pan, and sprinkle with the cinnamon swirl mixture.
  • Top with the remaining batter.
  • Bake for 40 to 45 minutes, or until a knife or skewer comes out clean.
  • Cool in the pan on a wire rack for 15 minutes.
  • Remove from the pan and cool completely on the wire rack.
  • When the bread is cool, mix together your glaze. You may need to add a bit more powdered sugar, or milk. But only add it in an extra teaspoon at a time, until you reach your desired consistency.
  • Drizzle over your bread.
  • Bread will keep at room temperature for up to 10 days when placed in an air tight container.
