Healthy Dessert? It’s Possible.

IMG_7903

Sometimes, we just need a little sweet in our lives. This week’s post shows you a healthier alternative to cookies and cake with this delicious baked pear.

✿ Pears are a very good source of dietary fiber. Adequate intake of dietary fiber is a long-established factor in reducing our risk of type 2 diabetes and heart disease.

Ingredients:

  • Pears (Serving size for one person is 1/2 a pear)
  • Unsalted Sliced Almonds
  • Honey
  • Cinnamon
  • Greek Yogurt

 

Directions:

Preheat your oven to 375°F. Wash the pears under water thoroughly. Slice them in half long ways and remove the core. Take a baking sheet and line it with aluminum foil. Place the pears skin down on the aluminum and drizzle with honey. Sprinkle cinnamon and no more than a tablespoon of sliced almonds on top. Place the pears in for about 15-20 minutes or until nice and soft. Take the pears out and plate with a tablespoon of greek yogurt. Enjoy!
