  3. In a medium bowl, stir together eggs, brown sugar, pineapple, pumpkin, sweet potato, apple, and ginger until combined.
  4. Make a well in center of dry ingredients. Add pumpkin mixture, stirring just until combined. Add melted coconut oil and dates, stirring to combine. Spoon into prepared pan, smoothing top with an offset spatula.

Baking Tip
  1. Because it’s packed with moist ingredients like pineapple, sweet potato, and apple, this hearty bread needs to cool completely before slicing. Let it stand overnight, and enjoy a slice for breakfast.
