This recipe makes a dense, aromatic and moist quick bread. It's delicious right out of the oven and also is fabulous toasted with a little honey or butter.



Preheat oven to 350° F. Butter and flour a 9 by 5-inch loaf pan.

Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and cinnamon in a large bowl. Add brown sugar, rolled grains and hazelnuts.

Combine eggs and milk in a small bowl and stir in butter. Pour this mixture into the dry ingredients and stir just until blended. Fold in pears.

Pour into prepared loaf pan and bake for 1 hour.

Warm jelly and brush over the surface of the bread.

Where is the vanilla in the recipe?

Vanilla for the Hazelnut and Pear Bread

Hi Kathy,

To add some vanilla to this recipe (which would be delicious)you can stir 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract in with the milk and eggs or scrape the seeds out of 1/2 vanilla bean and fold that into the milk and egg mixture. Then proceed with the recipe. Have a great day! Lynne

My daughter and I have made this recipe several times now, using different fruits (dried apricots--increase moisture a little; apples). A GREAT recipe, always delicious. What I like about your recipies we've tried is their simplicity and ease in finding ingredients. Thank you.


I noticed that you have this marked as vegetarian, but it uses 2 eggs. How does that compute? Eggs are usually not part of a vegitarian's diet, unless they are "very loose" about their food choices.


Response from Nick Rose, Nutrition Educator for PCC Natural Markets.

Rhonda - thanks for bringing our attention to this...the definition that we use to define recipes as vegetarian, is based on a lacto-ovo-vegetarian diet, and not a "strict" vegetarian diet, which is often referred to as a vegan diet. Here is a link to the Vegetarian Resource Group’s webpage, and also pasted below are their descriptions of the different classes of vegetarians: www.vrg.org

(from VRG)What are the different types of vegetarians?

1) Lacto-Ovo Vegetarian: does not eat meat, fish or fowl. Eats dairy and egg products.
2) Ovo Vegetarian: does not eat meat, fish, fowl or dairy products. Eats egg products.
3) Lacto Vegetarian: does not eat meat, fish, fowl or eggs. Eats dairy products.
4) Vegan: does not eat any animal products including meat, fish, fowl, eggs, dairy, honey, etc. Most vegans do not use any animal products such as silk, leather, wool, etc. as well.

Also - here is a link to the criteria that we use to categorize the recipes posted on our website: http://www.pccnaturalmarkets.com/pcc/recipes/guidelines

When searching for "vegetarian" recipes, you can also limit your search to egg free recipes by pressing control when you select "veg" and "egg free"... thanks again for your question!!
