What do you do when you have just one pear, a big box of quick oats, and a container of vanilla Greek yogurt in the fridge? Make this quick bread and enjoy it with a cup of tea! This is a healthy snack that’s full of fiber and not too sweet.
The quick oats and yogurt are mixed together first, and then added to the batter. Then chunks of fresh pear (I left the skin on) are folded in and it bakes in 45 minutes!
The batter is thick and lumpy, but it bakes into a rustic loaf that is perfect for an afternoon snack or a breakfast treat.
