Ingredients

  • 3 Pears (sliced in half and cored)
  • 1/4 Tsp Cinnamon
  • 1/4 Cup Walnuts (chopped)
  • 1 1/2 Tsps Maple syrup
  • 2 Tbsp Pomegranate seeds
  • 1 Tbsp Dark chocolate chips
  • 1/4 Tsp Coconut oil

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 375ºF (191ºC) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper
  2. Cut a small piece off of the bottom of each pear half so that it can lay flat on the baking sheet. Sprinkle each pear half with cinnamon and add the walnuts to each cored pear. Drizzle with maple syrup and bake for 30 to 35 minutes or until cooked through.
  3. In a small bowl, add the chocolate chips and coconut oil. Microwave on high for 30 to 45-second intervals until melted. Stir with a spoon to mix into a chocolate drizzle.
  4. Remove the pears, top with pomegranate and drizzle with melted chocolate mixture. Divide between plates and enjoy!

Notes

Leftovers - Refrigerate in an airtight container for up to three days. For best results, reheat in the oven and serve while warm.
Serving Size - One serving is equal to one pear half.
Nut free version - Omit the walnuts and top with nut-free granola or use pumpkin seeds.
No pomegranate seeds - Use fresh cranberries instead.
