Honey Oat Roasted Pears
Here's a perfect Autumn breakfast or desert....
1 cup rolled oats
1/3 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup sliced almonds
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 cup butter. melted, plus a little extra for brushing
3 Tbsp raisins
4 Bartlett or Bosc pears
honey for drizzling
Preheat oven to 375F (190C).
Toss the oats, brown sugar, almonds, and cinnamon and combine.
Stir in the melted butter until everything is well combined. Stir in the raisins.
Cut the pears in half and scoop out the core. I slice a sliver off the bottoms so that they stay flat in the pan.
Lay the pears in a baking dish and brush the tops with a little melted butter. Press some oat filling into the center of each pear.
Bake, uncovered for about 25 minutes, until the pears are tender and the oats are browned.
Serve warm, with yogurt and drizzled honey. I also sprinkle some nice raw brown sugar on the yogurt for presentation.
