It is Secret Recipe Club time again! this month I was assigned to stalk Mangia. Chelsy's blog is full of great recipes. Especially if you are looking for amazing gluten free, vegan or paleo recipes. There are a great variety of recipes to choose from. The creativity of people who follow gluten free and vegan lifestyles never ceases to amaze me. You'd never know there was anything different about the recipes. They are so good! But for this month I chose to try a taste of the season. And of course that means something made with pumpkin.
These Mini Pumpkin Loaves are delicious! The bread is moist and full of pumpkin flavor. They really hit the spot on a blustery fall day. We had this bread for dessert with some creamy pumpkin hot chocolate.
