Spiced Pear Bowl
You become what you envision yourself being. -Lewis Howes
Sometimes what I make for breakfast also doubles as a quick, simple dessert. This spiced pear bowl is fast and you can use any fruit that is in season. During summer, you can use stone fruit or berries. Since it's fall, I like to experiment with different varieties of apples or pears found in farmer's markets.
2 Bosc pear, peeled, cut in half and cored
2 tbsp coconut oil
2 tbsp coconut sugar
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
pinch ground cloves
pinch ground nutmeg
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
1/4 cup water
almond yoghurt, to serve
Active Bean Apple Beet Ginger bar, to serve
In a small pan, melt the coconut oil. Add in the the pears, coconut sugar and spices. Cook for a few minutes. Add in the water and vanilla extract. Let simmer with a lid for around 10 minutes. Depending on how firm your pears are you may need to reduce or add more cooking time. The pears are done when a knife can pierce it easily. Turn off the heat and let the pears cool in the liquid. Serve with a generous amount of yoghurt and crumbled apple beet ginger Active Bean bar. For extra decadence you can add your favorite chocolate chips.
