You’ll Need:

  • 1/4 cup almonds chopped
  • 1 tsp cinnamon ground
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon sugar (see notes)
  • 2 oz butter (grass-fed preferably) melted or coconut oil (see notes)
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar or coconut sugar or honey (see notes)
  • 1/8 tsp salt


  1. Preheat oven to 400°F/200°C.
  2. In a bowl, combine oats, ground cinnamon, sugar, almonds, and salt. Then, pour in half of the melted butter (or coconut oil) and mix.
  3. Cut the pears in half and scoop out some of the center. Then, brush the insides with the remaining butter, and sprinkle with cinnamon sugar.
  4. Spoon the oats and cinnamon mix into the center of the pears.
  5. Bake for 35 to 40 minutes or until the pears get soft.

NOTES: If you don't like almonds, you can substitute them with pecans or crushed walnuts. You can also use apples instead of pears for this recipe.
For a paleo version, substitute equal amount of ground flax seed, quinoa flakes or chia seeds for the rolled oats in the recipe. Also substitute coconut sugar or honey for the brown sugar (and sugar in the cinnamon sugar). Honey may change the consistency a bit as it is more liquidy.
For a paleo or vegan version, substitute coconut oil for the butter in this recipe. Although some paleo enthusiasts permit grass-fed butter, many do not.
