It’s time to bake! I made the most delicious Pear Yogurt Bread – adapted from Ina Garten’s). Used a combo of both fresh and dried pears, changed around with what we had in the house – coconut oil instead of vegetable.
It turned out REALLY well – super moist, rich with coconut flavor, plus a nice tang from the yogurt. Abe said it was the best thing I’ve ever baked!

- Preheat Oven to 350 degrees, grease and line a loaf pan with parchment paper.
- In one bowl, combine flour, baking powder, and salt. Put the yogurt, sugar, egg/egg whites, vanilla, and coconut butter in another - whisk well. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ones gradually, whisking the entire time.
