Thanks, Birgit! That is precisely what it is meant to be -- a rare treat that keeps you on plan and satisfies your sweet tooth without the coconut and almond flour cheats. I am having a particularly rough time with sweets during this holiday season as it is my first holiday as a paleo-ite and I looooooove all of the cookies and cakes and pies, etc that come with this time of year. I am looking forward to making these for my holiday party later this month and making them for my very merry carb-loving family!

Knowledge is half the battle!

That looks soooo yummy! Unfortunately too high in carbs for me at the moment but I could imagine it as a rare treat. emoticon

You can talk to God all you want and that's great, but the changes happen when you start listening to him.

BE THE CHANGE YOU WANT TO SEE IN OTHERS.

So, I have been craving sweets and trying new things. I am not much of a baker, but I love to cook and I love the combination of sweet and salty. Having recently entered the world of Medjool dates as a result of my paleo living, I made up this simple little recipe and cooked it tonight. These baked pears will make a great appetizer for a party, or an easy dessert for your family!

Ingredients:
1 Tbsp Coconut Oil
2 Pears, sliced in rounds from the top to the bottom
3 Medjool Dates, pitted
4 oz. Gorgonzola Cheese

Directions:
Preheat the oven to 375.
Grease a 9x12 pan with the coconut oil and set it aside.
In a bowl, combine the dates and the gorgonzola cheese, mashing them together into a thick paste.
Put about a half teaspoon of the date mixture on top of each pear slice.
Bake for 25 minutes or until the pears and the topping are a golden brown. Serve warm.
