Looking for a simple baked pear recipe? This Cinnamon Sugar Baked Pears with Granola Crumble is the perfect pear dessert. It is so easy to make and it tastes decadent.



  • 2 Large slightly under ripe pears
  • 1 tsp. Vanilla
  • 2 tbsp. Butter
  • 3 tsp. Granulated sugar
  • ¼ c. Brown sugar
  • ½ tsp. Cinnamon
  • ½ c. Old fashioned oats
  • ¼ c. Chopped almonds


  1. Heat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Slice each pear in half. You want to choose firm baking pears or slightly under ripe large eating pears. Pears that are very ripe will bake into mush.
  3. Use a spoon to scoop out a bit of the center of each pear.
  4. In a small bowl, combine the warm melted butter, vanilla and granulated sugar. Stir until the ingredients are combined well.
  5. Brush the butter mixture onto each pear half, reserving the remaining butter mixture for later.
  6. Mix together ¼ cup of brown sugar with a ½ teaspoon of cinnamon.
  7. Sprinkle the cinnamon sugar mixture over top of the pear halves.
  8. In a bowl, add ¼ cup of chopped almonds to a half cup of old fashioned oats.
  9. Pour the remaining butter mixture over top of the oats and almonds, and stir to combine them.
  10. Fill the center of each pear half with the oat and almond mixture.
  11. Bake the pears uncovered for 30-40 minutes until the top is browned and caramelized and the flesh has softened.
  12. Serve with sprinkled cinnamon, whipped topping or fresh vanilla ice cream.
