Oven Baked Ginger Pears (AIP, Paleo & Gluten Free)

Sharing is caring!

What better way to enjoy a delicious, natural dessert than with some cooked, juicy and caramelized fruit? Today’s oven baked ginger pears will make your mouth water… and the best part is: that’s totally fine!!

We all know refined sugar is bad for us. And when our sweet tooth calls, the best think that we can do is grab a piece of fruit, especially the one that’s low in fructose (like berries and citrus fruit for example) and that can satisfy our cravings without provoking insulin spikes or – in the case of those with autoimmune diseases – producing inflammation.

When a handful of blueberries or some frozen grapes aren’t enough to discourage the kid inside of us looking for a treat, baking our fruit can be a wholesome alternative, that leaves us satisfied without adding extra sugar.

Like Eileen Laird wrote in her article about the role of natural sugar in the AIP diet, “Baked fruit increases the sweetness without increasing the sugar content“. And it does that “by evaporating some of the water fresh fruit contains”.

More sweetness, same sugar content. That seems like a great deal to me! 🙂

You guys already know from my Stuffed Baked Peaches, that I love cutting fruit in half and stuffing with delicious fillings. But this week’s oven baked ginger pears are the perfect comforting treat to enjoy on a cozy night when it’s chilly outside… Or at least that’s when I carve them!

And their spiced, “gingery” (is this even a word?) stuffing is absolutely perfect to give them that warming kick.

If you aren’t a pear lover, you can substitute pears with apples, even though I think the latter better match a milder kind of filling, like the one you see in the photo of this Baked Apple and Pomelo Breakfast that you can find in my AIP Italian Cookbook, together with other 50 Italian dishes remade in their AIP version.

From Cannoli to Gnocchi, from Spaghetti with Meatballs to Tiramisu, in there you can find all the best of the Italian cuisine, without worrying about food allergies and intolerances!

As per this recipe, all varietals of pears are good. The only difference is that the texture of their pulp might affect the cooking time by a decent amount.

The pears I used were still pretty hard, and because I like them very soft, I let them bake for an hour and a half. If you are using ripe pears, make sure to check on them every so often. When the wooden stick you poke them with goes through entirely, they’re ready to be taken out of the oven!

As you can see from the ingredient list, the stuffing is super simple. For those who likes desserts on a sweeter note I added 1 optional tablespoon of honey, but I am telling you: I didn’t use it, and you don’t really need it!

These baked ginger pears are already a delicious just like that! And that tigernut stuffing gives it a boost of natural sweetness and prebiotic fibers, without adding any of the extra fructose!
