  1. Preheat your oven to 350F and grease or line a 8”x4” bread pan. 
  2. In a small bowl, mix together the ground flax seeds and water to create a flax “egg.” Let the mixture sit for 5-10 minutes. 
  3. Add the oat flour, pumpkin pie spice, baking soda and salt to a large bowl. Mix together until combined and set aside.
  4. Add the flax egg, pumpkin puree, sugar, nut butter and lemon juice to a small bowl and mix until combined. Then, slowly add the wet ingredients to the dry, mixing well until there are no clumps. 
  5. Mix in the chopped walnuts, if using. 
  6. Pour the batter into your prepared bread pan, then bake in the oven for about 55-60 minutes, or until the top is golden brown. 
  7. Allow to cool completely before slicing, then enjoy!
