sugar-free pear compote

Guys, I’m so excited to share this pear compote with you. Not only is it completely sugar-free, but it’s also: (1) so easy to make (2) so delicious you’d want to eat it by the spoonful (3) and just so perfect in baked oatmeal, on toast, on yoghurt, on pancakes…basically on pretty much anything you like to have for breakfast. I’ve made it two weekends in a row to enjoy during the week and still can’t get enough of it!

I have to be completely honest with you: I don’t find November fruits very exciting at all. I’m much more of the berry-peach-watermelon-summer fruit type and all the warmth that comes with them. Besides apples, pears, kiwis and citrus fruits, there’s not that much variety in the fruit section of the supermarket. Of course they always have exotic fruits year-round and berries (that are triple the usual summer price), and I always have my frozen varieties to get through the winter with, but nothing beats seasonal, juicy and fresh fruits.

I love having oatmeal for breakfast topped with fruits, but now that most of my favorite toppings are no longer in season, I’ve been experimenting with new recipes including pears and apples. The first time I made this compote I used it to top my warm bowl of oatmeal for breakfast (which I loved). The next time I made it, I baked it topped with bananas, oatmeal and pecans (which I loved even more).

All you need to do is chop up some pears, add them with a bit of water, cinnamon and ginger, and cook for 30 minutes until soft and fragrant. You can either leave the compote chunky or purée it to make a sauce. Store it in the fridge in jars for about 5 days and enjoy!

    I found this on pinterest this morning and made it. It was very good; I have never had compote before! It was very good. Do you have more sugar free recipes?
    Thank you for this! 🙂

      Hi Jeannette, thank you so much, I’m so happy to read that you liked my compote. I sometimes add a bit of honey to sweeten it if I find that the pears aren’t sweet enough.
      I have other sugar-free recipes on the blog, like these banana cinnamon pancakes or this baked raspberry and coconut oatmeal.

    Thank you for posting! I would rather have sugar free anything. Most recipes add way too much sugar. I like to taste the fruit.
