In my opinion, one of the great joys of the culinary world is using seasonal ingredients to create mouthwatering dishes, and that’s exactly what we’re doing with my Cinnamon Baked Pears. As a dessert-every-night kind of girl, I love recipes that require little-to-no prep work but ultimately result in something so rewarding. This is a healthier (and easier) take on a fruit crisp that won’t leave you feeling sluggish before bed. So whether you have perfectly ripe pears begging to be used or simply have a craving for a healthy, easy dessert you can make ahead of time, this recipe is the answer.
The magic of roasting pears is that it transforms them into a symphony of sweet, tender, and caramelized goodness, and in this case, they’re infused with aromatic cinnamon – it’s comfort and indulgence with zero effort.
To take this already heavenly dessert to the next level, I recommend topping it with your favorite granola or muesli for a delightful crunch. And if that’s not enough, a dollop of whipped cream, a scoop of ice cream or a spoonful of dairy free coconut yogurt seals the deal.
With just a handful of simple ingredients and a few easy steps, you’ll have a dessert that will impress guests, your family or satisfy your own sweet cravings in a matter of minutes.
