1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees F. and heavily spray the loaf pan with cooking oil spray.

2. In a bowl whisk together the almond flour, sugar substitute, baking powder, pie spice, and salt.

3. In another bowl, beat the eggs and then whisk in the pumpkin and vanilla. Combine the dry and wet ingredient and stir until combined.

4. Pour the batter into the prepared pan. Bake until golden brown and a toothpick comes out clean when stuck in the center, about 1 1/2 hours. Cool completely before removing from the pan. Slice into 6 thick slices and cut each slice in half to make 12 portions. Serve warm or cold.
