Spiced Baked Pears

As soon as we found out December is National Pear Month, we had to share this super easy and super delicious recipe for Spiced Baked Pears! A great use for the pear tree that partridge came with ;)

Spiced Baked Pears

2 ripened Bosc pears
Dash of cinnamon and nutmeg
1 package of Nourish Snacks® Chewy Blueberry Apple Granola Bites (4 oz package)
Non-fat baking spray
16 oz vanilla nonfat Greek or traditional yogurt

Total time: 35 minutes – Yields 4 servings

Step 1: Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F.

Step 2: Halve the 2 ripened pears, remove the cores and stems, and scoop out the centers with a melon baller, being careful not to scoop too deeply so as to pierce through to the skin of the pear.

Step 3: Sprinkle the halves with cinnamon and nutmeg.

Step 4: Insert the Nourish Snacks® Chewy Blueberry Apple Granola Bites into the cavity you’ve just scooped out. We fit about 4-5 bites in each half.

Step 5: Lightly mist the pears with baking spray.

Step 6: Fill a baking dish with about ½ cup of water (to maintain the moisture of the pears), and place the 4 halves into the dish.

Step 7: Bake for 20-25 minutes.

Step 8: Serve each pear with a couple of dollops (about 4 oz) of vanilla yogurt (Greek or traditional) and enjoy!
