Cinnamon Baked Pears with Granola and Fresh Whipped Cream
This simple recipe for cinnamon baked pears with granola and fresh whipped cream is easy to create but still makes an impressive after-dinner treat to enjoy!
Recipe type: Dessert
  • 4 ripe pears (I used Bartlett, but any variety of your choice should work!)
  • 3 cups (approximately) Quaker® Simply Granola Oats, Honey & Almonds
  • 4 tablespoons honey
  • Cinnamon
  • ½ pint heavy whipping cream
  • ⅛ cup confectioner's sugar, sifted
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Slice pears in half lengthwise, then use a melon baller or spoon to remove the center/seeds.
  3. Place the pears (sliced side up) in a baking dish. Fill each pear with a generous scoop of Quaker® Simply Granola Oats, Honey & Almonds. Drizzle with honey, and sprinkle lightly with cinnamon.
  4. Place the baking dishes of pears in the oven and bake for 15-20 minutes, until the pears are tender. Remove from oven and allow to cool 2-3 minutes before serving.
  5. To make the whipped cream, place a metal mixing bowl and whisk attachment into the freezer for about 15 minutes. Then, remove from the freezer - add the heavy whipping cream, confectioner's sugar, and vanilla into the metal bowl. Whisk on high with a mixer until the whipped cream forms stiff peaks.
  6. To serve, place a pear half on a plate or bowl and add a small scoop of whipped cream. Enjoy!
