The dessert breakfast: roasted nutmeg pear & toasted almonds…

On a dark winter morning it’s nice to wake up to a plate of something fruity, fresh and beautiful.

It’s also quite the motivation to wake up to something that looks kind of like…dessert.


What more could you want on a Saturday morning?

Dessert for breakfast anyone?!

Roasted nutmeg and honey pears with vanilla yoghurt and toasted almonds


You need:

1 pear: Pears are in season right now and they are just wonderful!

1 tablespoon of ground almonds

1/2 teaspoon of nutmeg (A bit of Christmas spice!)

1 teaspoon of honey (I use acacia)

1 pot of vanilla yoghurt

1 tablespoon of flaked almonds


Pre-heat the oven to 180.

Take your pear and peel it, cut it in half and take out the core.

Place both halves on a baking tray and sprinkle on the nutmeg, ground almonds and drizzle on the honey.


Place in the oven for 5 minutes and then turn the pears over.

Cook for a further 5 minutes.

While the pears are roasting, place the flaked almonds in a dry pan on a medium heat.

Turn until all the almonds are golden.

Once the pears are done, place on a plate and pour on the yoghurt.

Finish with the toasted almonds.

Then eat, and remember that old saying:

Life’s too short-eat dessert first!
