Vanilla Pear Oatmeal Quick Bread


vanilla pear oatmeal quickbread

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.

Chobani Greek yogurt and quick oats

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!

Vanilla Pear Quickbread

The batter is thick and lumpy, but it bakes into a rustic loaf that is perfect for an afternoon snack or a breakfast treat.

  2. This looks like such a delicious fall recipe! I’m making some pear bread pudding later this month (which is new to me – I’ve never baked with pear before!).

    I have always have yogurt in my fridge, so I think I’ll try making this as well. I think it’ll make a great substitute for oatmeal in the morning.

  3. I’ve never made a quickbread before but now I really want to buy a pear! I suppose I could substitute another fruit in a pinch? BTW I’ve been following you on social and fb for a while so I was quite delighted to meet you the other night! I’ll see you around for other events! 🙂

  4. Hi Mimi,
    You got me at the pears! This looks like a wonderful Fall gift as well for the holiday season.

  5. Hi,

    Can I substitute all the flour for oat flour instead? Thinking about making this for my toddler who always needs help in the p**p department.


    • If you want to try it that way, it’s up to you. I haven’t tried the recipe with oat flour, so I can’t say that it wouldn’t change the texture of the bread.
