Warm Honey Walnut Baked Pears

About a week ago my mom and I decided to have a movie night at my parents’ house. We both were craving something sweet but seeing as my mom is one of my clients (and she is MOTIVATED to be transformed for the beach in June 2018), we obviously didn’t want to stray too far away from the healthy diet. So these baked pears were just what we needed to satisfy the craving. And of course it was the perrrfect fall recipe for a chilly night!

Now depending how religious you might be as far as sugar content goes, you might think, “ehhh, is this recipe exactly ‘diet friendly?'” But the truth is, there’s a lot to be said about food when it comes to its molecular level. Basically, the more processed the sugar, the more difficult it is to work off that kind of fat or glycogen (what food becomes for 48 hours before it turns to actual fat). And that is IF it even turns to fat. This recipe is 100% natural sugar, so if you’re craving something sweet, go this route!


INGREDIENTS:

2 medium-sized pears

2 tablespoons of local or store bought honey

3/4 teaspoon of ground cinnamon

1 small handful of walnuts

DIRECTIONS:

1. Preheat the oven to 350

2. Slice pears in half and scoop seed from the middle. Place halved pears onto a cookie sheet lined with tin foil.

3. In a small ramekin or bowl, combine honey, cinnamon, and walnuts. Spoon onto pears.

4. Bake pears for 30 minutes. When finished, allow to cool, and enjoy!
