Macadamia Baked Pears

by Amie on April 21, 2010

Here is a tasty spin on baked pears…I opted to use macadamia nuts and balsamic vinegar for a fabulous, tender dessert that took just a few minutes to prepare last night.  This is a tasty go-to dessert when your taste buds are yearnin’ for a hint of sweetness!


  • 4 pears, sliced in half
  • 4 Tbsp. balsamic vinegar
  • 1/4 cup macadamia nuts, ground
  • 1/8 tsp. sea salt
  • Pinch of cinnamon
  • Optional toppings: Greek plain yogurt, Agave Nectar


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Drizzle vinegar atop pears; sprinkle with ground macadamia nuts
  • Bake for 30-35 minutes.
  • Remove from oven and enjoy with a dollop of Greek plain yogurt and a drizzle of agave nectar.
  • Enjoy!

YUM!!!! Awesome picture and recipe. Agave is my favorite baked fruit topping with cinnamon. Although I am going to have to try macadamia nuts now too :)
