Roasted Pears with Granola and Cranberries

 

Caramelized natural sugar – and a satisfying crunch – will make you forget you are eating a healthy dessert.

 

  • 3 pears
  • 3 tablespoons stevia
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ¼ cup dried cranberries
  • ½ cup low-fat granola
  • 1/3 cup apple juice
  • 1 ½ cups low-fat vanilla frozen yogurt, divided into 6 scoops

 

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  2. Peel pears and cut in half lengthwise. Scoop out core with a spoon. Place in a glass casserole dish, cut-side up.
  3. Mix stevia and cinnamon. Sprinkle on top of pears.
  4. Combine dried cranberries and granola in a mixing bowl. Set aside.
  5. Pour apple juice into pan with pears.
  6. Place pan in oven and bake for 10 minutes. Remove pan and mound the cranberry-granola mixture into the holes created by missing cores. Return pan to oven and bake for an additional 10 minutes.
  7. Remove pan and allow to sit for 5 minutes. Plate pears and drizzle with remaining juice. Serve with frozen yogurt.
