Move over Apple and Pumpkin, there is a new fruit in town! This Easy Simple Ingredient Cinnamon Pear Banana Bread is fluffy, flavorful and perfect for breakfast or a snack.
Have you every had an abundant amount of pears at home and thought “what can I do with all these pears?” Well, same! Pears don’t get enough love during the Fall. They’re often overlooked by apples and pumpkin spice but they’re a seriously underrated fruit! Pears are quite the versatile ingredient too. You can use them in savory dishes like these Pear and Goat Cheese Crostini’s or in a salad like this Pear Balsamic Salad. They’re also wonderful roasted with honey or poached and go great with breakfast or dessert!
Like apples, there are many different types of pears. To be honest, there are so many apples and pears that I’ve never even hear of! I also don’t really know what each tastes like and which is my favorite. For this recipe I used D’Anjou pears and according to a quick Google search, the best pears for baking are Bartlett, Bosc and D’Anjou.
