30-Minute Gout-Friendly Holiday Treat: Baked Pears with Walnuts

As we embrace the festive spirit, we understand the importance of cherishing delightful moments without compromising on health. That's why we're excited to share a special gout-friendly holiday treat that promises both indulgence and well-being: Baked Pears with Cinnamon and Walnuts!  

Why Baked Pears?

Pears, with their natural sweetness, take center stage in this easy-to-make recipe. Not only are they a delectable fruit of the season, but they are also low in purines, making them an excellent choice for those managing gout.

Ready to Try? Here's the Recipe:


✓ 4 ripe but firm pears, halved and cored
✓ 1 tablespoon unsalted butter, melted
✓ 2 tablespoons honey or maple syrup
✓ 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
✓ 1/4 cup chopped walnuts


Preheat the oven to 170°c fan/190°c/375°f.
Cut each pears length ways into two halves. Using a teaspoon, scoop out the seeds to create a little cavity in the middle of each pear half before placing them in a baking dish cut side up.

In a small bowl mix the walnuts, cinnamon and 2 tbsp of maple syrup / honey until combined. Spoon the mixture into the cavities, dividing it evenly between the 4 halves.

Drizzle the pears with the remaining 1 tsp of maple syrup / honey before baking in the preheated oven for 25-30 minutes or until the pears are soft and golden on the edges.

STEP 5 (Optional)
Serve the pears with a dollop of yoghurt or ice cream and a drizzle of any juices remaining in the baking dish.
