Notes
We have made this recipe with apples too! If you are making this for a crowd that is not familiar with clean-eating I would add 2 tbsp. coconut sugar to the pears and nutmeg. You can make the caramel sauce ahead of time but putting it in the fridge will give it a firmer texture so you will need to give it a good stir or heat it up gently. It makes plenty and will last up to a week in the fridge. It tastes great in yogurt or over plain fruit. We are in love with the NEW Birch Benders Paleo Pancake mix but you could use another brand. They have a line of amazing products so be sure to check them out! Please use organic ingredients when you can.
