We loved this recipe! The topping tasted a little like a British flapjack to me (I love flapjack!). The flavours of the pears and the topping blended together so beautifully we'll definitely make this often. With low fat butter and Splenda brown sugar, this recipe has 5 Weight Watchers points per serving/ whole pear. Made for ZWT6.

VERY Yummy!! Even DH who doesn't care for pears said by the time he was finished with his serving thought they were delicious. I had 6 pears that needed to get used up quick so I halved and cored them. Buttered my baking dish and set them inside flesh side up. I increased the oats and brown sugar to 1 Cup, left the butter and nutmeg as written and added a heaping tablespoon of cinnamon. I had some leftover juice boxes from company a while back and used 1 Apple and Eve Apple Juice box. It was just shy of 1 cup but I think the amount was perfect. The only thing I would do differently next time is reduce the butter, maybe by half since I used butter to grease the dish. Overall, a very successful dessert and beautiful presentation!
