Recipe

Baked Pears with Vanilla Yogurt and Granola

Times

  • Prep Time : 30 min
  • Cook Time : 35 min
  • Ready Time : 1 hour, 5 min

Servings

4 Servings

Ingredients

  • 2 medium pears (Bartlett or D'Anjou pears)
  • ½ cup apple juice
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 3 (6-ounce) containers low-fat vanilla yogurt
  • ½ cup low-fat granola
  • Mint leaves, optional

Directions

Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Cut pears in half lengthwise and remove core with a melon baller or small spoon. Place pears, cut side down, in a shallow baking dish just large enough to hold them.

Pour apple juice and water over pears; drizzle with honey. Cover pan loosely with foil and bake about 35 minutes or until tender. While pears are baking, place granola in a shallow baking pan or pie plate and toast in oven 10 minutes; set aside.

When pears are done, pour baking liquid into a small saucepan and reduce over medium heat until about 1/4 cup of syrup remains; set aside to cool.

Line a colander with paper towels and place over bowl to catch drips. Pour yogurt into colander and allow to drain about 30 minutes. Divide yogurt among 4 shallow bowls. Place warm pear half, cut side up, over yogurt. Top with toasted granola and drizzle with syrup. Garnish with a mint leaf, if desired.

Yield: 1/2 pear plus 1/4 of yogurt mixture, per serving
