Cilantro Quick Bread

Last night, GF Guy requested Pumpkin Chili for dinner….. again….
It is his absolute favorite dinner, and he gets very offended when people don’t like it! (…which has actually never happened. People have refused to try it, but have never disliked it once they do.) Anyway, I was going to make cornbread to go with our chili, but the grocery store I went to didn’t carry any “Celiac-Safe” Cornmeal. As tempted as I was to just buy the Quaker Cornmeal, I knew it was not a good idea. On to plan B! I used the ingredients I had on hand to make a delicious quick bread that paired perfectly with the chili! This recipe makes 3 small loaves. We only ate one, and I can’t wait to use the other 2 for a recipe I have floating around in my head. Enjoy!
