Fun fact: Did you know pumpkin spice is just a combination of the spices people have always used to make pumpkin pies? It's not a special branded flavor, as Starbucks would have you believe. It's just cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves and ginger. And allspice is pumpkin spice without the ginger. 

Lesson learned? Then you've earned a recipe for some delicious gluten-free pumpkin bread!
