IMG_20140626_122701

Pears are quite easy to overlook. They’re not exactly the sweetest or the most juiciest fruit to eat, nor are they the first thing you’ll want to grab when a craving strikes. But when you bake them, these humble things turn into the most incredible winter warming delights.

Pears are full of fibre and vitamin C and when combined with these spices, nuts and honey, they make a sweet and crunchy wholesome snack, dessert or brekky (just add some homemade muesli and almond milk to make it a satisfying morning meal).
