  • 2 ripe pears. I used Conference pears.
  • 8 tbsp mixed, crushed nuts. I used walnuts, hazelnuts and almonds
  • 2 tsp maple syrup
  • large pinch ground ginger
  • 1 tbsp grated ginger


  • Half each pear lengthways. Scope out the area that holds the seeds. Place the pears in an ovenproof dish with the cut side facing up.
  • Mix the nuts,cinnamon and maple syrup together in a small bowl.
  • Spoon the mixture into the hole made by removing the seeds from the pear. Drizzle any leftover maple syrup over the nut mixture and the pears.
  • Put the ovenproof dish in the oven and cook uncovered for 10 minutes. Check to ensure they're not burning, and then bake for a further 5 minutes. The nut mixture should now be softly stuck together.
  • Gently transfer the pears halves into two serving dishes and dust with cinnamon. I love them on their own as they're so sweet, but if you want, you can serve them with vegan ice-cream.
