Pumpkin Spice and Everything Nice Loaf

I’ve never been one to shy away from pumpkin spice. When I used to drink coffee and I wasn’t vegan, I used to look forward to the day Starbucks announced that their Pumpkin Spice Latte was back. I also used to have about 5 slices of Pumpkin Pie every thanksgiving, lathered in whip cream. Actually, that hasn’t changed much I could probably still eat about 5 slices of vegan pumpkin pie and a tub of coconut whipped cream. Okay, I am getting a little bit off topic, but my main point is that I really love pumpkin spice anything and I go crazy for it the second fall comes around. One of my favourite pumpkin spice treats to make is my gluten-free pumpkin spice loaf, it’s super easy to whip up on a Sunday night and it can carry you through the week.
