Cinnamon Baked Pears
Garnish with an extra sprinkle of cinnamon or a drizzle of sugar-free maple syrup for added sweetness.
Serve with a dollop of additional Greek yogurt on the side for extra protein.
4 ripe but firm pears
1 cup plain Greek yogurt (unsweetened)
1/2 cup chopped nuts (almonds or walnuts work well)
2 tablespoons protein powder (vanilla or unflavored)
1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
1 tablespoon coconut oil, melted
1 tablespoon sugar-free maple syrup or a natural sweetener of your choice
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
A pinch of salt
Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).
Cut the pears in half and remove the seeds and core to create a well for the filling.
In a bowl, mix together the Greek yogurt, protein powder, chopped nuts, cinnamon, melted coconut oil, sugar-free maple syrup, vanilla extract, and a pinch of salt.
Spoon the yogurt mixture into the well of each pear half, distributing it evenly.
Place the filled pear halves on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
Bake for 20-25 minutes or until the pears are tender and the topping is lightly golden.
Remove from the oven and let them cool slightly before serving.
