Baked Pears with Maple & Cinnamon
- 2 ripe pears
- 4 Tbsp. walnuts
- 2 tsp. maple syrup
- 2 tsp. ground cinnamon
- 1 cup vanilla frozen yogurt
Directions1. Preheat oven to 350°F. 1. Cut pears in half, lengthwise. Placing flesh-side down, carefully make a horizontal slice of the skin, so that when the pear half is flipped over it will lay flat. 1. Flip the pear halves over, so the flesh side is up. Using a spoon, gently scoop out the seeds to form little bowls. Fill each pear bowl with 1 Tbsp. walnuts and ½ tsp. maple syrup. Sprinkle each pear half with ½ tsp. cinnamon. 1. Place pear halves onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake for 25 minutes, then remove from oven and allow to cool. Top each half with ¼ cup of frozen yogurt and enjoy!
For dairy free or vegan: Use vanilla non-dairy frozen dessert instead of vanilla frozen yogurt.
