Paleo pumpkin loaf

I am obsessed with this breakfast at our local café, it's called paleo pumpkin bread & avo and right now I would eat it every day if I could. The café is Someday Coffee Co in Floreat and I highly recommend, its the best café I've been to in Perth so far. I decided to make my own version that I can eat at home, its gluten free, dairy free and seriously delicious.
