Salted Cardamom Honey Roasted Pears

Good morning lovelies! I’m here with an updated version of a honey roasted pear recipe from last year. It’s new and improved and I know you’re going to love it! If a recipe is worth me coming back to it to reshoot and update then you know it’s a good one.
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 in years (I’m fine, btw.) I have to admit that once I got over my ridiculous fears 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.

Ingredients for Salted Honey Roasted Pears:

I love baked fruit desserts such a cobbler, crisps, and these roasted pears, because they’re so easy and flavorful! They’re also a crowd pleaser and a simple dessert to make for entertaining, especially because they’re such an allergy-friendly option. And the best part? Minimal ingredients. And if you despise running to the grocery store as much as I do, then you know what I mean! Here’s what you need:
  • Pears: 4 ripe pears. You want them to be soft, but not mushy.  Bosc and Anjou pears work best for baking,but you can use other pears if needed!
  • Honey: You can sub maple syrup for a vegan version of this recipe
  • Cardamom: The best spice! I love the cardamom contrasted with the pears.
  • Cinnamon: Another comforting spice to add flavor depth to the pears.
  • Coconut Oil: This is what you’ll use to roast the pears. Can sub butter or ghee.
  • Grain-Free Granola: I used my salted walnut grain-free granola, but you can sub sliced almonds and coconut flakes if you don’t have granola.
  • Flakey sea salt: Use flakey Maldon salt to top off your pears!

Tips for making Salted Cardamom Honey Roasted Pears:

  • I topped these off with grain-free granola, but you can use slivered almonds or coconut flakes if that’s what you have on hand.
  • Store leftovers in the fridge for up to 4 days.
  • If you want to make these EXTRA awesome, serve with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream.
