After making the “Baked” Cinnamon Apples for a while, I wondered if I could do the same thing for different fruits. Naturally, the next option would be pears. But I wanted to do more than just another fruit. So I started thinking of combinations. Pears are fantastic with raspberries, though the berries are usually turned into a sauce. I thought I’d try this while leaving the raspberries whole.
The thing I love the most about this recipe is that there is no need for added sweeteners. Oh, and it’s fast. And delicious. I guess that’s three things I love most about it.
"Baked" Pears & Raspberries
Put the coconut oil in the small bowl (I use a Pyrex dish for this) and microwave it for about 15-20 seconds until it’s melted.
Place pear and all other ingredients into the glass bowl. Mix it around to get the oil and spices on all the pears. Don’t stress to much about perfection here.
Place the lid or plastic wrap on the top of the bowl. Leave a small vent open for steam to escape.
Microwave on HIGH for 2:15.
Be very careful removing the bowl from the microwave. It will be extremely hot and there will be steam. Use potholders here, it really helps.
Give everything a quick little stir, and devour them!
