HOW TO AIR FRY PEARS (STEP-BY-STEP):

Step one: prep the pear. Wash the pear(s) and dry with paper towels. Cut the pear in half, and gently use a spoon or melon baller to remove the core. Brush or rub melted butter on all the cut sides. Sprinkle a dash of salt. Then mix the coconut sugar and ground cinnamon; generously spread on the cut side of the pear. Ensure every cut side is covered with cinnamon and sugar mix. See photo.

Step two: air fry pears. Set the air fryer to 375 and preheat. Then place pears cut side up in the air fryer basket and the air fryer for 15 minutes without turning until fork tender. If you want the baked pears to be crunchy, then do not bake them for up to 15 minutes.

WHAT TO USE AIR FRYER PEARS FOR?

Air fryer pears will make a perfect weeknight dessert. Equally, they make an excellent dessert for those busy weekend nights that you have no time to bake proper desserts (like pies or rolls). At the same time, you can totally enjoy air fryer pear as a nutritious breakfast with yogurt and granola topping! 

Air fryer pear would make a great holiday dessert for several reasons. First, it is easy to make and wouldn’t add to your kitchen workload. Second, it will considerably reduce calorie consumption during the holidays! Third, it is a healthy alternative to most desserts, and honestly, you won’t miss your regular dessert! 

To serve air fryer pear, simply add a scoop of Greek yogurt (to keep it healthier) or vanilla ice cream. I had mine with yogurt, but my children love the ice cream option. On the other hand, you can sprinkle some honey on them and savor! Finally, crush/sprinkle your favorite granola on top; I used grain-free granola. Obviously, you can use any granola or nuts of your choice.

FAQs

Can I freeze air fryer pears?

How to cut pear?

Easily use a paring knife to slice the pear in half or lengthwise. Then use a spoon or melon baller to remove the core.

Can I also use other fruits instead of pears?

Yes, you can easily use this same method and air fry apples or peaches. Let me know what you end up doing.

What air fryer do you use?

I use Instant Vortex Plus; I love it; one of my best decisions! It has several uses such as air fry, bake, broil, dehydrate, etc.
