- Preheat oven to 375°F (190°C).
- Cut pears in half, then cut a small sliver off the underside so the pears sit flat when placed upright on the baking sheet (no need to line a baking sheet, but you absolutely can with parchment or a silicone baking mat.)
- Using a large or medium cookie scoop or melon baller (or even a teaspoon), core out the seeds.
- Arrange pears, facing up, on the baking sheet.
- Sprinkle evenly with cinnamon-- feel free to add more cinnamon if you'd like.
- Whisk the maple syrup and vanilla extract together in a small bowl.
- Drizzle most of it all over the pears, reserving about 2 Tablespoons for after the pears are finished baking.
- Bake pears for about 25 minutes until soft and lightly browned on the edges.
- Remove from the oven and immediately drizzle with remaining maple syrup mixture.
- Serve warm with granola and yogurt. Store leftovers in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.
