Baked Grapefruit Your Way

Grapefruit, while gorgeous in color and delicious in cocktails, can be hard to eat on its own. As a kid I had an aversion to anything bitter.

I wanted to like grapefruit SO BAD because of how they looked, but one bite and an instant pucker was enough for me.

I'm so happy that I found and edited this recipe with my mom years ago, and that I'm able to share it with you today!

The warming spices and sweetener are just enough to tame that grapefruit pucker to a point where it's actually refreshing.

Have it for breakfast with yogurt and granola (SO GOOD), or a snack or dessert on its own.

Really, just have it.

Serving size: 1-2 servings

Prep time: 5 minutes | Cook time: 15 minutes | Total time: 20 minutes


  • 1 grapefruit

  • 1/2 tsp ginger, fresh or ground

  • 1 tsp cinnamon

  • 1/4 tsp cardamom

  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg

  • 1 tsp honey, maple syrup, or brown sugar

  • pinch of salt

Ideas for other topping combinations: vanilla + maple syrup, honey ginger rosemary


1. Preheat toaster oven or conventional oven to 400°F.

2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Cut the grapefruit in half and place both halves on the baking sheet. Option to pre-cut your grapefruit around the edges and into slices like I did, or leave as is as cut afterwards.

3. Sprinkle with spices, salt, and top with your sweetener of choice

4. Bake for 15 minutes

5. Turn the broiler on and char for 1-2 minutes, or until golden brown on top

6. Slice with a knife and eat with a fork!

It tastes amazing with yogurt and granola, or on its own!
