Start or end your day with this super simple Baked Grapefruit recipe. This sweet treat is topped with a mix of brown sugar and cinnamon and baked for 15 minutes. Once cooled, fresh mint is sprinkled about for a bit of added freshness.
Mix Cinnamon and Brown sugar in a small bowl. Set aside.
Cut the grapefruit in half and discard any large seeds. Using a small paring knife, cut between the flesh and the membrane to loosen the sections. Then place the grapefruit cut side-up in a baking dish.
Sprinkle each half with 1 tablespoon of brown sugar and cinnamon mixture.
Transfer the baking dish to your pre-heated oven and bake the grapefruit for 15 minutes.
Remove from the oven and let the grapefruit cool for about 2-3 minutes.
Then top each half with a sprinkle of fresh mint and enjoy.
Substitute your favorite sweeteners in place of brown sugar. Honey, agave, date or maple syrup work just as well.
