This is my version of a traditional banana bread with a twist! Its very sweet, moist and down right delicious. While its not a fat free food it is low-fat compared to its traditional counter-part. Recipe makes 2 loafs, 6 serving per loaf. Tastes good cold or hot. With or without topping. Its super easy, and great for kids to help make! Try adding nuts or dry fruits to the mix right before baking for an extra texture and flavor element. == Note: When I made this recipe I used a kitchen aid stand mixer, if you don't have one; take a plastic bag, mush your bananas and pears together then add to a bowl and whisk all the materials together. Its super simple. Easily vegan if you use egg substitute. You will also need two medium sized bread loaf pans.****

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mush banana and the pears together in your mixer with the whisk attachment on medium until mostly smooth, a few lumps are okay! Add 1 cup of the flour and the rest of the ingredients and mix on medium. When the ingredients are well combined, gradually add in the remaining 3/4 cup flour. Scrap down sides and mix well.
  2. Grease and flour two bread loaf pans, divide the mixture evenly between the two. Tapping the pan on the counter to remove air, leave set 5 minutes Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
  3. Bake loafs for 45-60 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.

Great bread! I had some very ripe bananas and pears to use up and this is a great and easy way to do so. I always carry all these ingredients. I did not, however, make two loaves of bread as I like a big mean loaf that bump up the pan! Definitely a keeper! Thank you for sharing!

Simply delicious! This recipe made 3 small pans. I used egg substitute which seemed to work well. I only had three little tiny pears, so I used two bananas instead of one, and it turned out great! Thanks!

Great way to use up pears and bananas! I had 2 Bartlett pears, 1 regular banana and 2 small apple bananas from the freezer. I also made it in a 9x13 pan which didn't rise too much so next time I'll use the loaf pans. It was still a great dessert for hubby and me! Thanks.
