Another recipe inspired by Chopped Wednesday! This ‘basket’ consisted of: graham crackers, cream cheese, pears and walnuts. Pretty hard to go wrong with a combination like that…I did struggle with the creativity part though, so this’ll have to do 🙂
4 oz cream cheese (I used fat free, but you can use whichever)
1 tbsp vanilla greek yogurt
1 tsp vanilla
2 tbsp coconut sugar
1 egg or 2 egg whites
3 graham crackers
1/3 cup walnuts
Preheat oven to 350*F
Cut pears in half and use a spoon to scoop out the insides. Pear flesh is soft enough to scoop with a spoon. If you use a knife, it’s harder to create a “bowl” kind of effect.
Whip cream cheese, greek yogurt, vanilla, sugar and egg with a whisk until soft and creamy.
Crust:Blend graham crackers and walnuts until combined and crumbly.
Take a halved pear and spoon about a tbsp of crust mixture into the pear. Press into the sides with your fingers.
Then spoon about 2 tbsp of the filling into the pear.
Take out, slice if you like and garnish with whatever you like!
