Baked Pears with just (4) Ingredients! This EASY dish made with honey, walnuts and cinnamon is perfect for breakfast or dessert!
Baked Pears Recipe
My favorite way to enjoy fall fruit is baked, sometimes with a little yogurt, or a little ice cream for dessert, much like I do with these delicious baked apples. Here, I baked the pears with cinnamon, honey and walnuts – it doesn’t get simpler that this!
I had some beautiful ripe Royal Riviera pears on my counter from Harry & David and didn’t want to waste them, so I cut them in half, cored them and baked them in the oven this morning. While they baked my kitchen smelled heavenly! They turned out even better than I hoped – I had one for breakfast with a little yogurt, but this would also make a wonderful dessert.
What are the best pears for baking?
I love Royal Riviera, Bosc and Anjou for baking for the best texture and taste.

Baked Pears with Walnuts and Honey
- 2 large ripe pears
- 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
- 2 tsp honey
- 1/4 cup crushed walnuts
- optional yogurt or frozen yogurt
- Preheat the oven to 350F.
- Cut the pears in half and place on a baking sheet (I cut a sliver off the other end so they sat upright).

- Sprinkle with cinnamon, top with walnuts and drizzle 1/2 teaspoon honey over each one.
- Bake in the oven 30 minutes. Remove, let cool and enjoy!

I’m not seeing what temperature to bake at.
A great dessert, or a salad, Nice on bed of greens too, ( like in Fast and Slow book) I think this feels like a holiday dessert. Everyone likes these.
Found this recipe when looking for a way to use up some of the exact same pears from Harry & David! Each one is big enough to feed all four of us, so we needed to find a way to use them up. I made the recipe as is, and then added a drizzle of maple syrup over them just before serving them. They were a big hit – soft and delicious. Will make again!
I love this dessert. I actually make this almost every night. I pile some blackberries or blueberries on top of the pear half before baking and save the honey for when it’s done. So yummy! A little serving of vanilla no sugar added ice cream on the side and it is just to die for! Even eating this every night for dessert, my husband has lost 22 pounds and I’ve lost 19 pounds in a little over 2 months.
This is my favorite dessert now!!!! I make it twice a week. I also add a tiny drizzle of maple too. Yummmmmm! Great recipe.
Excellent and easy recipe. I used organic Bartlett pears and served them as a dessert with a slice of soft-ripened goat cheese on the side. All my guest raved about them.
This is a FANTASTIC recipe. Nothing better for a light dessert!
Can this be made ahead? Would love if you reply soon. Want to try and make it tonight for tomorrow
Yes, that would be fine.
Just made these and they are delicious! Such an easy recipe and so tasty
These were amazing. Served with a little vanilla Greek yogurt. So simple and delicious.
Soo addictive!!! I made these two days in a row!
I used almonds since I didn’t have walnuts and it turned out great. I baked them a bit longer for 40 minutes and ate it with plain Greek yogurt.
So so so good!!!
Really delicious! I had two ripe pears and this was the perfect recipe. Substituted pecans for walnuts as that is what I had on hand and paired with Greek yogurt. Will make this again!
These pears, along with some plain yogurt, have become my go-to weekend morning treat. So easy and delicious, they turn out perfect every time.
Loved these! I made without the walnuts because I just didn’t have any in hand – and I still LOVED this!!!
It was easy and delicious. Thanks..
So simple and delicious!
I signed up for the pear walnut honey recipe
This recipe was so simple that I made it immediately after finding this recipe online. I actually had just picked some pairs. I had honey and cinnamon but had just recently finished my walnuts. So I made it with just three ingredients the pears the honey the cinnamon. We enjoyed it very much.
I loved this recipe! I had to cook it a little longer. It wasn’t as soft as I liked it after 30 minutes. I cooked it for maybe 40 minutes. Delicious!
Made these and the pears were still not as soft as expected. Perhaps 30 mins baking isn’t enough? Or maybe I had bad pears.

Thanks You Friends good HEY
Love this simple yet scrumptious recipe!
Great recipe, made even better if you add a square of 85% Dark chocolate while still hot. Aaah, naughty but nice!
How could I lower the carbs and sugar and still have a sweet taste?
I hope I can use the round Asian pears, because that’s what I just bought. Before I saw this.
Can you pre make and reheat?
Delicious, easy, perfect Fall breakfast! Just made these in this chilly September morning. Along with a big cup of coffee, it was heavenly!
These were amazing! These were so easy to make, and they are delicious!
Great dessert! My picky 4 yr old and Mexican husband enjoyed these pears. Thank you!
