  1. Preheat oven to 180C.
  2. In a large bowl mix together the flour, cinnamon, salt, nutmeg and baking soda.
  3. Make a well in the centre of the dry ingredients and add in the eggs, coconut oil, honey, yoghurt and vanilla essence, and mix with a wooden spoon until combined.
  4. Add in the pureed pumpkin, mashed banana and nuts and combine with the wooden spoon.
  5. Grease a loaf pan with some coconut oil, then carefully pour in the batter evenly.
  6. Scatter a few pumpkin seeds on top of the batter.
  7. Bake in the hot oven for 30-35 minutes. Check to see if the loaf is ready by gently touching the top, if it feels firm and springs back, then the loaf is ready. If the top is soft to touch or wobbly, continue to bake for another 5 minutes until ready.
