Baked cinnamon-sugar pears with walnuts

Gluten Free Low Sodium

Pears and oats provide a powerful punch of fiber for a healthy digestive system!


2 Anjou pears
3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
3 tablespoons dark brown sugar
1/2 cup old-fashioned oats
1/4 cup finely chopped walnuts
1 pinch ground nutmeg
3 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted


  1. Preheat oven to 400 F.
  2. Cut each pear in half. Remove seeds. Scoop out the center, leaving a hole for filling. Place pears skin-side-down in an 8-by-8-inch pan.
  3. In a small bowl, combine cinnamon and sugar. Stir. Sprinkle a light coating over pears and reserve extra for filling.
  4. In a medium bowl, combine oats, walnuts, nutmeg and reserved cinnamon-sugar mixture. Stir. Add melted butter and stir until well-combined. Spoon filling into center (hole) of pear halves.
  5. Bake 30 to 40 minutes. Serve warm.
