This Gluten Free Baked Pear Recipe is a healthy seasonal dessert, snack or breakfast! Never tried a stuffed baked pear? You're in for a treat. Oats, cinnamon, raisins and maple syrup are combined and stuffed into a pear that's heated to perfection. Serve it with or without ice cream.
Preheat oven to 350 F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a medium bowl, mix oats, raisins, walnuts, coconut oil, maple syrup and cinnamon. Stir to combine.
Use a melon scooper to remove the seeds of the halved pear. Place pears on prepared baking sheet.
Fill pears with oatmeal mixture, stuffing in as best as you can. Drizzle a few drops of maple syrup on top of oatmeal if desired, and sprinkle a little more cinnamon over prepared pears. You will have some of the oat mixture left; save that for serving.
Place stuffed pears in oven and bake for 30 minutes. Let cool slightly.
Serve warm as is, or with a scoop of ice cream or a dollop of nut butter.
