Method: 

Preheat oven to 350°F. Spray an 8-inch loaf pan with olive or canola oil spray.

In a mini-food processor or coffee grinder, process flaxseed until finely ground, 10 to 20 seconds.

In a large bowl, combine ground flaxseed, flour, cornmeal, baking powder and salt. In a small bowl, combine egg replacer with warm water, stirring with a whisk. Stir in soy milk, oil and maple syrup. Make a well in dry ingredients and add liquid ingredients. Stir until just combined. Stir in pumpkin seeds.

Pour batter into prepared loaf pan. Bake for 45 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center of the loaf comes out clean. Cool in the pan on a rack for 5 minutes, then turn it out of the pan and continue cooling on the rack.
