Today after dinner I was craving something distinctly autumn-y. The weather was really the first chilly day since summer. I happened to have a pear in the fridge, so I made some modded pear crisps in the oven.
Calories: 57 Carbs: 11 Fat: 2 ; per serving
For five servings:
4 tbs roller oats
1 tbs brown sugar, packed
2 tbs lemon juice
1 tbs fake butter spread
- Preheat oven to 350
- Dice pear into bite sized chunks and place them in a cupcake pan. My pear was 5 slots worth (so 5 servings). Pour a small amount of water over the pears so that they don’t dry out while baking. A small amount!
- In a microwave safe bowl combine oats, brown sugar, butter, and lemon juice. Microwave for 10-15 seconds, then mix with spoon.
- Add cinnamon and vanilla extract according to your own preferences. I added about four conservative shakes of cinnamon and 3 drops of vanilla. Mix well.
- Spoon mixture over pears and bake for 35ish minutes, or until pears are soft and tender.
I ate mine with a dollop of reduced fat whipped cream. :D
