It might be a little sad to say goodbye to tank tops and open-toed shoes, but the upside to fall is getting cozy in the kitchen and baking up some delicious treats! Becky LaChance of BeckyLivesHealthy.com is here with an easy-to-make pear recipe that’s as tasty as it is nutritious.
When fall rolls around, I get excited to spend more time baking my favorite recipes, like cinnamon baked pears—one of my favorite fall fruits. Not only because they’re tasty, but they’re also just so good for you! They’re packed with fiber, vitamins and antioxidants that help with digestion and help lower inflammation.
I love baking pears in the oven with cinnamon and a little maple syrup. All you have to do is slice the pears in half, scoop out the seeds, drizzle them with some maple syrup, sprinkle them with cinnamon and into the oven they go!
Once the fruit is finished baking I top it with some vanilla yogurt and granola for a little crunch! It can be enjoyed as a dessert or as a healthy breakfast. If you’re not a fan of yogurt, you can chop the pears up and enjoy them on top of some warm oatmeal or a stack of your favorite pancakes. If you want to turn this recipe into a real treat, add a scoop of vanilla ice cream!
