Banana Pear Sourdough Bread THM XO, Sugar-free

Banana bread has been an old-time favorite quick bread. Add some grated pears and it gives it an even better flavor and texture. Serve this bread with some freshly made butter and you have a winner!!

This recipe was created with the thought of using extra unfed/discard starter that you may have on hand. I used sprouted and oat flour so that it can be baked immediately after mixing.

This moist Banana Pear Bread is a THM Crossover since it includes both fats and carbs. I love to spread it with just a bit of butter for a delicious treat.

The banana can be very ripe as it gets blended with the other liquids. I was gifted quite a number of Bosc Pears and they are delicious in this bread. If you wanted to use all bananas..you can use 3 large bananas and omit the pears.

Fold the ingredients together until just incorporated. Pour into a well-greased bread pan. Place bread pan into the oven. Bake for 65 minutes or until toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. 12 slices.

I grate the peeled pears really fine with an old-fashioned metal grater that I have.

The wet and dry ingredients are carefully combined by mixing lightly, just until the they are incorporated together.

Doesn’t this loaf of bread look wonderful. The top gets a little crusty and the center is so moist.
