Winter is the perfect time to get creative in the kitchen by baking healthy goods that the whole family will love. This beautiful pear tart dish is so versatile as it can make for the perfect dessert item for the family, brunch centre piece, or just a special breakfast treat for you to enjoy on a cold morning with a hot cup of tea.
This recipe is great as pears are a good source of vitamin C, folate, copper, and potassium with one pear containing only 100 calories and boasts 5 grams of fibre.

This recipe serves 8
Total time: 40 mins

3 medium sized green pears
1.5 cups walnuts
1 lemon juiced
2 tbl raw honey
1 tsp sea salt
2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp coconut oil (can use unpasteurized butter)
1 tsp baking soda

Preheat oven to 375 degrees
Set a tart or pie dish aside.
Blend the walnuts in a food processer until they have a fine texture. Add baking soda, salt and oil. Pulse until it has a dough-like texture.
Pat the dough into the dish until it covers the entire surface at an even thickness.
Bake for 15 minutes.
Take out and let cool while you prepare the filling.
Reduce the oven temperature to 350 degrees
Remove pit and slice the pears about 1/8th of an inch thick.
Toss with honey, lemon juice, and cinnamon.
Arrange the pear slices in the crust however you like – the flower assembly takes not time and looks nice.
Bake for 15 minutes.

Let the tart cool slightly before serving the bon appetite! 

If there are left overs, it will keep for a few days so all you have to do is re-heat it in the oven before you enjoy again.
