Pears are not only deliciously sweet, but they also offer lots of health benefits. Pears are full of fibre that helps keep your digestive system happy. They contain prebiotics that feeds the good bacteria in your gut, keeping it healthy and in balance.
Their high copper content works with iron to ensure your body can produce red blood cells, which also keeps your blood pressure and cholesterol low.
Pears also contain “flavonoids,” which are antioxidants with anti-inflammatory properties that protect against diseases like cancer and diabetes.
Preheat your oven to 350ºF/177ºC. Using 1 Tbsp of the butter, butter a 9” x13” (23cm x 33cm) baking dish.
Peel the pears cut them in half, and remove the core.
In a small bowl, whisk the butter, vanilla, and cinnamon. Brush the pears with the mixture on both sides.
Arrange the pears in the prepared baking dish, cut the side down and sprinkle with the walnut pieces, and bake the pears until fork-tender, about 40 minutes.
These are great warm or cold – try topping them with coconut whipped cream! Yum!!😋
