Baked Pears with Maple Yogurt & Granola
Packed with protein, adding some greek yogurt to your breakfast is a great way to start the day.
What you'll need
2 Pears firm, Bartlett or Anjou
16 ounces Greek Yogurt plain
4 tablespoons Maple Syrup
2 tablespoons Walnuts chopped
1.Preheat the oven to 375°F.
2.Cut the pears in half lengthwise, and remove cores with a spoon. Place in an 8x8-inch baking pan, cut-sides down.
3.Pour apple juice and water over pears, and drizzle with honey. Cover pan loosely with foil and bake about 35 minutes or until tender.
4.When pears are done, pour the leftover baking liquid into a small saucepan and reduce over medium heat until about 1/4 cup of syrup remains; set aside to cool.
5.Open container of Greek yogurt and stir in the maple syrup. Divide yogurt into four bowls. Place a half of the warm pear in each bowl, cut side up. Top with granola and walnuts, and drizzle with syrup you set aside.
- If you use canned pears instead of fresh pears, drain but reserve ½ cup of juice and omit apple juice. Cut down cooking time in step 3 to about 15 minutes.
- Pears are very similar to apples so if there is a recipe that calls for pears and you don’t have them, you can use apples instead.
