You’ll love how easy this is to make! Just take some pears, stuff them with butter and a pinch of cinnamon and nutmeg. Add your cranberries. Then zest a little bit of orange and squeeze the juice all over the cranberries and pears for a punch of fresh flavor.

    This looks great. What type of pears do you use?

    This recipe is a great paleo recipe, but it is not Whole30 compliant. It needs to omit the honey and sub vanilla bean or powder for extract.

    This recipe looks great (although not true to Whole 30 as previously mentioned). I am doing Whole 30 for the first time for the month of September. I think I will do something like this as dessert for my Autumn Equinox feast. Maybe I’ll just simply skip the cranberries so I can easily omit the honey.

    Thank you! This recipe is fantastic! I needed a break from eggs on my whole30 so I made the necessary adaptations and added chopped almonds for some protein. Perfect breakfast for the first day of fall.
