Baked Pears with Granola

I'm really becoming a fan of simple fruit dishes. Not only are they healthy, but they taste so good! This Health Magazine dessert is no different!

Baked Pears with Granola
2 Bosc pears - peeled, halved, and cored
2 tsp sugar
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 cup granola (see my recipe in the healthy/breakfast section)
1/4 cup apple juice

top the prepared pears with cinnamon and sugar mixture. Fill in core-holes with granola. Pour apple juice over the top. Cover loosely with parchment paper and microwave on high for 6 minutes. Serve with 2 pear halves and a scoop of low-fat vanilla ice cream - pour leftover juice (in bottom of pan) over the top - delicious and healthy!
