Baked Almond Pears

This is a super easy, tasty pudding and perfect at this time of year as it starts to get colder.

It serves around 3-4 people at approx 253 calories (if you have one pear each).

You will need:

3-4 pears

100g Ground almonds

25g Sugar (I used half spoon)

1 egg (or you could use egg replacer or soaked chia seeds)

1 tsp Cinnamon

1/2 tsp Almond essence (optional)

Preheat the oven to 170 C.

Cut the pears in half and remove the core. I leave the skin on but if you prefer you can peel them too.

Mix the ground almonds, sugar and cinnamon together in a bowl.

Add the egg and almond essence and mix well to form a paste.

Place the pears in a lined baking tray.

Add an equal amount of the almond paste to each pear.

Place in the oven for 30-40 mins until the pears are soft. Check regularly and cover with foil if the topping starts to get too brown.

Serve alone or with yoghurt or ice cream!

Enjoy 🙂
