Pear Bread

Experience the taste of fall with this easy Pear Bread! It is one of the most delicious ways to eat ripened pears right now. Bursting with chunks of pears, this fall quick bread is moist, tender, and flavorful. For this bread, I like using white whole-wheat flour and coconut sugar for added flavor and nutrition benefits.

While you can use any pears you have for this bread, I prefer Anjou or Barlett because they break down well when baked and have that definitive pear flavor. As for the spices, I love to use just nutmeg and vanilla for this recipe. Keeping it simple allows the subtle pear flavor to shine through. However, feel free to sub out the nutmeg if you don’t like its flavor and use whatever spices you like.

To make the Pear Bread, you will need the following ingredients:
