Baked Pears with Pecans



One of my favorite ways to make delicious and healthy holiday desserts is by baking fruit. The combination of slight caramelization with the mix of spices and the tender texture makes these easy baked pears extremely comforting and makes your home smell amazing!



These baked pears are perfectly sweet and so tasty! The mix of cinnamon and brown sugar is the perfect addition for a vegan holiday dessert, and the crushed pecans add the perfect crunchy texture that makes it extra special.



I love to serve these healthy baked pears with ice cream, yogurt, or shredded coconut. I love the extra texture and flavor!



If you’re looking for a warm and delicious vegan thanksgiving dessert that’s also healthy and easy to make, this one checks all the boxes!
