Preheat oven to 350ºF and spray a small baking dish or pan with nonstick cooking spray.

Slice pear halves across continuously in 1/8 inch slices almost cutting through. Place on baking pan.

Stir together melted butter, CocoSweet+, and cinnamon. Brush each pear with butter mixture.

Cover with aluminum foil and bake for 20 minutes. Remove from oven and cool slightly.

As pears are cooling, stir together ingredients for pecan filling. Use fingers to gently fan open slices of pears and spoon with pecan mixture to fill. Place back into oven and bake 10 minutes.

Using a hand mixer on medium speed, mix coconut cream and Nectevia until fluffy. Serve pears hot with a dollop of coconut whipped cream.

Sweetener Notes: The original recipe calls for CocoSweet+, but for another reduced-sugar option, use Fructevia.  To jazz up the coconut whipped cream, use the Nectevia Original flavor for a simple sweet treat, or try Nectevia New England Maple for an extra indulgent flavor, for an extra creamy flavor try Madagascar Vanillaor Marrakesh Spice for a warm spiced flavor, or Sweet Provencal Anise for added floral notes, or even Masala Chai Spice for a spicy cinnamon sensation!
