Celebrate fall flavors with this vegan maple pecan fall fruit bake! Simple, roasted fall fruit you can enjoy as a side dish, with yogurt, or as a healthy dessert. YUM!
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Grease a 3 quart baking dish with the coconut oil or butter. Peel, core, and halve the pears. Peel, core, and quarter the apples. Place the pears and the apples face up in the baking dish and sprinkle with the cinnamon.
Bake for 10 minutes.
Remove from the oven and sprinkle the cranberries and pecans evenly into the baking dish. Evenly drizzle on the maple syrup. Return to the oven and bake for another 15 minutes, or until the apples are fork tender. Let cool slightly.
Serve warm with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream. Or let cool and refrigerate to have with yogurt, oatmeal, or as a side dish.
Feel free to use any variety of pear you'd like or any variety of apple you'd like. I liked the contrast between the tart granny smith and the sweet, crunchy honeycrisp apples.
