Makes 4 servings
2 ripe pears (Bosc or D'Anjou, we used Harry & David Royal Riviera pears!)
4 tbsp oats
2 tbsp honey
2 tbsp maple syrup (or sugar to sprinkle on pears)
2 tbsp roasted walnuts or pecans
4 tbsp roasted almonds
2 tsp cinnamon powder (+ extra to sprinkle on top)
1/2 tsp nutmeg powder
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. In a small bowl, mix together the oats, cinnamon powder, honey, nutmeg powder, almonds, and walnuts.
Cut the pears lengthwise in half and scoop out the seeds with a spoon. Lightly brush each pear with maple syrup or sprinkle with sugar.
Line a baking dish with parchment paper and place the pears face-up on it.
Heap the oat mixture onto each pear. Bake until golden brown for about 20 minutes.
Serve with a drizzle of maple syrup or honey, and cinnamon powder. Pair it with your favorite coffee or ice cream!
