Rhubarb-Pear Nests

Spiralized pears offer an interesting texture and reduce the cook time, but if you don’t have a spiralizer, you can also dice the pears into small pieces. When picking a granola, look for options that are lower in added sugars and higher in fiber.

Ingredients

  • 3 stalks rhubarb, diced
  • 3 pears, spiralized
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • ½ large orange, zest and juice
  • ¼ cup granola
  • ¼ cup walnuts, chopped

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350ºF. Spray four ramekins with cooking spray.
  2. Toss rhubarb, pear, cinnamon, zest, and juice in a medium bowl. Divide the mixture between ramekins and bake for until pears are soft (25-30 minutes).
  3. Top ramekins with granola and nuts and bake until toasted (4-5 minutes).
