Pumpkin, Spice, and everything nice?!

I found this recipe on a paleo friendly site and had to try it - and share it!  It was beautifully simple, and contains NO FLOUR!!  Hot damn - a cake/bread like loaf with no flour?!  Score! 
**NOTE: it does have almond butter so if you are allergic, this recipe won't work for you**
(Please excuse my frosting job - I'm no baker!)  ;)
You'll need:
1 cup almond butter (I used creamy, unsalted)
1 cup canned pumpkin
2 eggs
1/4 cup agave nectar
2tsp pumpkin pie spice
1 tsp vanilla extract
3/4 tsp baking powder
for frosting:
1/4 cup butter (I used Smart Balance Low Sodium)
.5tbsp cinnamon
.5tbsp vanilla extract
.5tbsp agave nectar
Preheat oven to 350. 
Grease loaf pan w/coconut oil.
Combine loaf/cake ingredients in large bowl, mix with electric mixer. ((May have to blend for a while to make sure almond butter is well mixed in and not still in chunks))
Pour into greased loaf pan. 
Bake 45 minutes.
Remove from oven and let cool. 
When loaf has cooled for at least 30 minutes, place in refrigerator to further cool.
In bowl, combine frosting ingredients.
Mix with electric mixer.
Spread on cooled loaf.
This should be refrigerated.
