This recipe requires no baking - woohoo! The spices are warming and add a natural sweetness to the whole tart. When you compare this tart to a typical baked tart you are getting megawatt nutritional bang for your buck. Here's why this tart is joyous:
No bake - saves you tons of time!
Smash those cravings - the good fats from the nuts are extremely satiating and blood sugar balancing which keep cravings in check.
Anti-oxidant rich - Nutmeg, cinnamon and cloves are of royalty breed when it comes to the level of antioxidants and anti-inflammatory naturally occurring plant chemicals they contain. Just look up Tufts University ORAC scale on these spices.
Full of fiber - Soluble and insoluble fiber make pears an excellent food to prevent type II diabetes and heart disease. Be sure to keep the skin on! Studies have shown that the skin of pears contains at least 3 to 4 times as many phenolic phytonutrients as the flesh! Learn more about the health benefits of pears here.
