Are you in the whole 30 kick? If so I applaud your tenacity! Because I’m on AIP I feel like every day is a Whole 30, but with even more restrictions—thus the need to make recipes that make me feel less imprisoned, like these pears.
You’ve probably heard me complain about fruit by now—it’s no secret that I’m not exactly a fan. But every once in a while I find a way to really enjoy an Apple or some blueberries—especially in a pie or a crumble.

Pears? Pears are new for me. A little part of me was afraid I’d have an allergic reaction to them because I hadn’t had one is years (I’m fine, btw.) I have to admit that I found myself actually really enjoying the pears. Would I choose them as a snack? Never. But an allergy friendly dessert? Ok, I’m listening.
I’m also loving the versatility of pears when it comes to spices—they go great with ginger, nutmeg, cinnamon, cardamom, etc. I need to try this recipe with apples and see if the same holds true—and if the texture can pull off being baked on a baking sheet without a crust or topping to protect it.

In short? You win, pears. You win.

Tips for making Cardamom Honey Roasted Pears:

  • Bosc and Anjou pears work best for baking
  • Top off with slivered almonds if you can tolerate them
  • If you want to make these EXTRA awesome, serve with vanilla ice cream
