Finally, add some finely sliced ginger, and it’s ready to go in the oven. Bake until the pears are tender, then flip them and place them under the broiler for a few minutes just to slightly caramelize.

The result is beautifully golden brown pears that have soaked up the maple ginger syrup. I love to serve the pears warm with a couple of tablespoons of ginger syrup, a dollop of coconut cream, and some crushed peanuts on top. Delicious.

What I love about this recipe is that it can be served warm in the fall/winter or cold in the summer. Oh, and if you have leftovers, just use them as a topping for oatmeal. It’s amazing!

  1. Omg yum! Looks amazing. I can’t wait to try this with the pears I just got from the farmers market! Do you think the syrup would still carry the same consistency and flavor effect if I left out the coconut sugar?

    I made this using organic bosc pears, which I did not peel to retain all the goodness, and used raw sugar as that is what I had on hand. My guests opted for no nuts, as we had other desserts, but I would serve it with chopped pecans over peanuts, although I’m sure any nut would be good. I also added cinnamon, as it is very cold here. It was perfection. Everyone loved it! Tastes like much more work than it is.
    This is my go-to website for vegan cuisine.

    Simple to make and tastes great. Can easily be scaled up to serve more people. Try adding a bit more cornstarch to thicken the syrup.
