Baked “candied” Pears 3

I am always looking for sweetener -free deserts. I try to not substitute paleo-ish sweeteners in my recipes (raw honey or grade b maple syrup) and just completely eliminate sugars all together.

To me, this had the perfect flavor and we didn’t miss the sugary sweetness at all.

Your choice of pears, I actually used an assortment of pear varieties. I halved 8 pears and removed the cores, then lined a baking dish with the pear halves.

Inside the center, where the cores were previously I added a small pat of grass-fed butter and sprinkled the pears with cinnamon. Then I topped each half with a mixture of chopped organic and unsweetened dried cranberries and raw pecans. Over the top I crumbled just a little gorgonzola cheese (if you are dairy free, just omit this ingredient). Finally, I squeezed the juice of a lemon over the top.

Bake at 375 degrees Fahrenheit for 20-25 minutes.

I am a woman, a mother, a wife, an entrepreneur and I have worn a hundred different hats in my lifetime. I've recreated myself when I've needed to, I've gleaned from the experiences I've been lucky enough to have - both positive and negative, and they have impacted the person that I am today. Like you, I've succeeded and failed and I will continue to do so, because failure is simply the precursor to success! As a coach, as a blogger and as a friend; I am just who I am. I will ramble, I will be honest, I will be emotionally invested and I will say it like it is. I am not a sugar coater, I value honesty. I am not afraid to disagree or have conflict, as those are both healthy and vital to individual growth. I enjoy teaching, learning, discussing and collaborating. As a mother, there is nothing more important to me that the responsibility I have been given to shape the lives of my children, to empower them, to protect them and to help them learn to be strong and independent adults some day.
