Baked pears with honey, cinnamon, and nuts are a delicious and healthy dessert instantly to get in love. This simple autumn dessert is one of my favorites, and topped with vanilla ice cream is simply mouthwatering.
Autumn colors and aromas are present in my house since pumpkins and veggies are riped and tasty. I adore the smell of baked cinnamon with nuts, which is marvelous and cozy.
Baking pears is easy and gets even more delicious as they get softer and buttery. They look beautiful, inviting, and tasty with a nice golden color.
Baked pears with nuts can be a healthy alternative for people who want to savor a dessert but want it less caloric. Apples can be a great alternative to pears, but I like pear’s taste more.
Seasonal farm pears
I would recommend seasonal farm pears as they are healthier, softer, and riped. Top some ice cream, and these baked pears will instantly melt into the mouth.
There are days when my daughter doesn’t want to eat fruits, so I try to camouflage pears with different toppings or stuff them with nuts and spices to have her eat them. This dessert will become kid-friendly and delicious.
Pear is a healthy fruit full of health benefits, vitamins, and minerals.
Even though many people don’t pay much attention to this fruit, pears are cholesterol-free, fat-free, sweet, and healthy.
Pears contain a lot of Vitamin A, which is beneficial for our skin, calcium, magnesium, and a good antioxidant.
It is important to remember that pears ripe from the inside out; this is why they will taste even sweeter and better in late September.
Fill the air in the house with these delicious baked pears that can substitute even the most sophisticated dessert.
What pears are best for baking?
We live in a world where you can find anything and everything. On the other hand, it becomes more challenging to choose what pear to buy and where. Some recommendations are Bosc, Anjou, Royal, or Bartlett pears which are available in any store all year round. They are bigger in shape and sweet enough to use any time of the year.
4 medium-riped pears
One cup mixed nuts (pistachio and walnuts)
One tbsp cinnamon
a tbsp honey
1 tbsp coconut oil
One tsp ginger powder
How to make baked pears?
Wash and clean the pears. Take a large cutting board and cut halves. With the help of a scooper or spoon, gently scoop out the core and seeds.
