This are so simple, so tasty and a great way to enjoy pears. If the pears are slightly under ripe and you can’t wait to eat them this is a great way to use them, equally if they are a bit over ripe this is perfect too. I often eat them for breakfast, when I get up to make a cup of tea I will pop the oven on, prepare the pears and stick them in the oven, and let them bake whilst getting ready. By the time I come down they are done. They go just as well with yogurt and granola as they do with porridge and nuts. However, they make a lovely light dessert too, served with oat crème fraiche or vanilla ‘ice-cream’, toasted nuts and a drizzle of maple. The also look very pretty baked.
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tbs coconut sugar/brown sugar or omit
Pre heat oven 180°C
Cut the pears in half and place in a baking dish.
Sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar
And bake for 15-20mins until soft.
You could place on a lower heat and cook for a little longer.
Serve as you wish or with one of my suggestions from above.
