Who doesn’t love a healthy yet decadent dessert? These baked pears are so soft and juicy, and paired with the yoghurt, it makes for a nourishing and creamy treat that’s perfect served hot to warm yourself up during cooler months. If it’s summer in your corner of the globe, simply serve it chilled – it’s just as delicious.
- 6 pears, halved, I used Bosc pears
- 2 tbsp maple syrup
- 2 tbsp coconut oil, melted
- 1 tsp vanilla extract, optional
- 2 tsp cinnamon
- 200g (7oz) Greek yoghurt, or coconut yoghurt for dairy-free
Preheat the oven to 180°C or 350°F.
Place the pears in a shallow baking dish or ramekin.
Drizzle the maple syrup, coconut oil and vanilla extract over the top of the pears. Dust with the cinnamon.
Bake in the preheated oven for 45-60 minutes, or until golden and caramelised.
Serve with Greek yoghurt or coconut yoghurt.
Any leftovers can be kept in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 4 days.
