If you have a gluten intolerance, chances are you miss one major thing this time of year: pumpkin bread! 

Well, you’re welcome, this recipe will hit all of your holiday cravings in one swoop: There’s more than twice the pumpkin than traditional versions of this recipe, plus cranberries for when you’re feeling Christmas-ready. As a bonus: There’s a ton of cinnamon, which will help with blood sugar regulation.
