Preheat the oven to 350°F and line an 8x4 loaf pan with parchment paper.
In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the eggs followed by the maple syrup, cashew butter, pumpkin puree, coconut oil and vanilla until smooth.
Add a large fine mesh sieve over the bowl and sift in the almond flour and coconut flour. Stir in the baking soda, cinnamon, pumpkin spice and salt until combined.
Transfer the batter into the loaf pan and bake in a preheated oven for 40-45 minutes, or until the loaf is golden and the middle is set.
Remove pan from the oven and let loaf cool completely before adding the glaze.
Beat together all the frosting ingredients and use an offset spatula to spread it over cooled loaf.
Sprinkle with chopped nuts, if desired.
How to store
Store leftover pumpkin loaf in an airtight container in the fridge. It will stay fresh for about a week. You can also store it tightly wrapped in aluminum foil if it’s unfrosted.
How to freeze
You can store the loaf in the freezer with or without the frosting. It’s best to store any frosted leftovers in an airtight container with a lid. For an unfrosted loaf, you can either wrap it tightly in plastic wrap and then store in a resealable ziptop bag or in a resealable container.
Frozen pumpkin bread lasts for up to 2 months. Before you serve it, thaw it overnight in the fridge and bring it back to room temperature.
