Clean Eating Pear Crisps with Cacao

These clean eating pear crisps are dipped in a raw cacao sauce. This recipe is a brilliant way to use up surplus, not quite ripe pears from the garden. When baked, the pears dry out into a sweet, distinctively textured crisp that goes brilliantly with the raw, bitter cacao.


  1. Pre-heat the oven to 170°C.
  2. Thinly slice the pears using a sharp knife, and lay the slices out on a baking tray lined with parchment paper.
  3. Squeeze the limes and collect the juice in a small bowl. Brush each pear slice with the lime juice, on both sides to prevent discoloration.
  4. Bake the pear slices in the oven for 30 minutes, turning them over every 5-10 minutes.
  5. The pears are done when you can see that the moisture has left them, leaving the slices looking dry and starting to crisp and brown around the edges.
  6. Allow the pears to cool.
  7. Melt the coconut oil and stir the cacao powder into the oil to form a sauce.
  8. Dip the cooled pear slices into the cacao and allow to dry.
