Decadent Cinnamon Maple Poached Pears

stewed pears
By: Claire Georgiou, Reboot Naturopath, B.HSc ND

Stewed fruits are a delicious and healthy dessert, snack or breakfast. (They’re warming, too, for those of us in Australia, where it’s cold out now.) You can use any natural sweetener that you choose or simply leave the sweetener out entirely to enjoy the full sweetness from the fruits. This recipe can be used for apples and other fruits in place of the pears and its oh-so-simple but also oh-so -delicious! Pears are also a valuable source of fiber with 5g per serving.
