Well, I've enjoyed talking about and using 🍐🍐🍐 all this month!!  Here are the recipes for my "pear adventures"😊.

Healthy Baked Pears
(From: Nutrition to Fit)

Total Time: 40 minutes
Yields 4 servings

2 pears (I used Bosc pears)
2 Tbsp raw pumpkin seeds
2 Tbsp dried cranberries
2 tsp pure maple syrup
1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp ground ginger

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

2. Slice each pear in half and scoop out the seeds.  Slice a very small sliver off the backs of each pear half so it lays flat in a baking dish.

3. Combine pumpkin seeds and dried cranberries.  Fill each pear cavity with this mixture.

4. Drizzle pears with 1/2 tsp maple syrup each.  Combine cinnamon and ginger and sprinkle evenly over pears.

5. Bake for 25-30 minutes until pears are soft and tender.

6. Allow to cool slightly and serve with any desired toppings (I used 1/2 cup vanilla Greek yogurt mixed with 1/8 tsp of cinnamon and ginger).
