Cinnamon Sugar Pumpkin Loaf

Pumpkin pie not your thing? Struggling to find a gluten-free alternative to your favorite Thanksgiving dessert? Well I have got the perfect treat for you!

This cinnamon sugar pumpkin loaf is super moist (I hate that word, but it’s honestly the best way to describe it) with a crunchy, cinnamon sugar topping! Anyone had Starbuck’s coffee cake? This is similar, but lower sugar and fat and PUMPKIN-FLAVORED.

It’s also healthy enough to be considered breakfast, which is always an added bonus.

  • 1 can 100% pumpkin
  • 2 cups gluten-free oats
