Pumpkin Spice Loaves

I have loved baking all my life, but when my mom made the choice to be vegan, I had to find new recipes. This one's a keeper! —Marisa Holt, Los Angeles, California

    I can't believe I am the first to review these! I made these loaves a couple of days ago to get something yummy in the freezer for school lunches again, and they are the best! I wasn't looking for a vegan recipe, and didn't even realize they were until I was almost finished mixing everything. I have to say, I was VERY skeptical that they would turn out because the batter was incredibly thick and seemed strange once I realized I hadn't added any dairy or eggs. However, they rose up beautifully, are the perfect texture, and not dry at all. They are so delicious! This is my new go-to for sure.
