Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Coat a loaf pan with cooking spray. In a large bowl, cream the butter, maple syrup, eggs, pumpkin purée, and vanilla extract. In another bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, pumpkin pie spice, cinnamon, sea salt, and pecans.
Fold the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients. Do not overmix. Transfer the mixture to the loaf pan. Bake until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, about 1 hour.
