Delicious! We absolutely loved the flavor combination - just a nice taste all the way around. Will definitely make this again. Made for Spring PAC 2012.
This was sooo good! A very nice Gfree dessert. I skipped the granola as I didn't have it and subbed molasses for the brown sugar and blueberry yogurt. It came out delish. We will eat it again tonight I have left over pears. Thanks Loof wonderful recipe and would love to make it next time with some Gfree Granola. Made for Ramadan Tag 2010
