Baked Pears with Honey Almond Oat Crumble

Ya’ll!!!! Today I have a special treat for you! My friend Claire who blogs over at A Little CLAIREifcation is sharing a delicious easy to make recipe with you.

Now, those of you who don’t know Claire, you need to! She is seriously one of the funniest people I know!! No joke! Not only is she outstandingly funny but she is also crazy creative and makes the best diy projects and food. If you have checked her out already go do… I’ll wait here.

Welcome back! Let me introduce you to Claire!

Hi there Joyful Healthy Eats readers!  It’s me, Claire, stopping in from A Little CLAIREification to share a super easy and delicious recipe – these Baked Pears w/ Honey Almond Oat Crumble.

Krista is letting me take over her blog today while she is out of town and I am so happy to be here!

If you have never popped over to my blog here is a little bit about me:

I am a wife and Mama to three boys and a lover of good food and all things crafty.  A Little CLAIREification is a lifestyle blog dedicated to bringing my readers “bright ideas on a budget”.  I also love coffee and I am completely addicted to CHEESE.  That’s a fact, Monterey Jack.

No cheese in today’s recipe, though – just sweet, juicy pears topped with an addictive, honey infused crumbly mixture then baked to perfection.

In addition to voracious cook book reading and watching a little too much Food TV, I also get weekly recipes sent to me by eMeals and this is one I just had to try out.  This is a perfect go-to recipe for brunch or an easy breakfast with family and friends.

Now y’all, I sent my darling Husband to the store to get the pears and I probably should have said “Honey, make sure they are pretty and perfectly pear shaped”.

But I didn’t say that.  Mental note – “pear-sight” is 20×20.  So don’t cha know he grabbed the four fattest, “squattiest” pears I have Ever. Seen. In. My. Life.

Well, ok.  One WAS rather pear shaped but you should know that the others were just plain fat.  Hey, now I am sure they have a good personality so no offense, pears. They still tasted delicious but just keep that in mind while selecting your pears for this dish if you want them to be all uniform and fancy-schmance-like.

I worked with two pears at a time since I was taking pictures (oh, and because they were fat) but of course you can use a larger glass dish and make all 4 pears – eight halves – at once.  I turned the dish at the halfway point during baking to ensure even browning.

Once the baked pears have cooled slightly, drizzle with a little honey (and a dollop of whipped cream if you’re feeling decadent, and I almost always am) and there you have it.

Beautiful baked pears drizzled with the nectar of the Gods and the filling is just deeelicious, y’all.  I could mix that into plain yogurt or just eat it by the spoonful and be as happy as a (pear-shaped) clam.
