Roasted Pears with Cinnamon Honey Pecans

These delicious Roasted Pears with Cinnamon Honey Pecans are not only tasty but healthy too! Mr. Kringle said he felt like he was getting away with something by eating them and hey, that’s the goal!  When you’re looking to impress but keep it simple, you can’t get much better than this!

I’ll be honest, I never gave pears a second thought because as a kid I was weirded out by the texture when they’re raw.  But when they’re roasted, the flesh slices like butter and melts in your mouth.  The pecans simmer in the honey as they roast and I had to keep an eye on mine as Mr. Kringle was giving mine a glance or two.  Hands off buddy!  Click the video below to see how you can get your hands on them!

Roasted Pears with Cinnamon Honey Pecans
Roasted Pears with Cinnamon Honey Pecans
Prep Time:
5 minutes
Cook Time:
30 minutes
Total Time:
35 minutes
  • 2 pears (ripe with slight give)
  • 1 tsp coconut palm sugar (or preferred sugar)
  • 1/8 tsp allspice
  • 1/8 tsp cardamom
  • 1 oz pecans
  • 1 tsp cinnamon honey
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Cut two ripe-ish pear down the middle.
  3. A melon baller is the best way to remove the seeds. Just gently press it into the flesh of the pear and scoop out the seeds and repeat with the other halves.
  4. For the rub, I use 1 tsp organic coconut sugar, 1/8 tsp of allspice and 1/8 tsp of cardamom. Give it a stir until well combined.
  5. Place your pear halves on a baking sheet.
  6. Sprinkle your sugar mixture over the pears using small pinches.
  7. Place 3 or 4 pecans inside of the hollowed out pear.
  8. Drizzle a small amount of honey over top of the pecans. You don’t want to drown them in it but just enough to allow them to simmer in the honey as they roast.
  9. Place the pears in the oven for 30 minutes.
  10. Allow them to cool for about 3-5 minutes before serving.

Can also be roasted without sugar and honey if you're trying to cut back on it.

  1. These look so delicious! We recently roasted apples with a caramel in the center and it made my wonder why I don’t roast my fruit for dessert more often. Pears would be great!

    1. I know, right!? Roasting fruit with a little spice gives such a nice pie flavor without the adding crust calories! 😉

  2. Yum!! I’m definitely going to be giving these a try, I’m always looking for healthy new recipes. I love pears and pretty much anything with honey 🙂 #DreamTeam

  3. I have done this with Peaches but never thought about pare.
    Heck, I do not think I have ever even have had a cooked pare. I will put this on my things to try list! Thanks for sharing the recipe. Looks delicious!
