  2. Next, half and core your pears and place onto the baking sheet skin side down, core side up.
  3. Then, to a medium sized mixing bowl, add your cranberries, pecans, rolled oats, maple syrup, cinnamon and nutmeg. Stir until fully combined.
  4. Evenly divide your filling amongst your cored pears, it is okay if some of the filling is spilling out, you want them to be stuffed!
  5. Next, top your pears with 2 tbsp of maple syrup, make sure to drizzle the maple on the tops of the pears that do not have filling. Optional - sprinkle the top with additional cinnamon and nutmeg.
  6. Then, place in the oven and bake for 25-30 minutes, or until pears are tender and filling is crispy.
  7. Once baked, remove from the oven and let cool slightly.
  8. Serve warm topped with vegan yogurt, a sprinkle of cinnamon and enjoy!
