Honey Brûléed Grapefruits (AIP, paleo)


Delicious ruby red grapefruits broiled with honey and cinnamon. Light and bright, a great side for brunch, especially when served with some dairy-free yogurt.


  • 2 ruby red grapefruits
  • 4 tsp honey
  • 2 tsp cinnamon 


  1. Preheat oven to Broil.
  2. Trim 1/4–1/2″ of peel from bottom of each grapefruit half to make the halves flat and help them from wiggling back and forth. 
  3. Place the grapefruit halves face-down on paper towel for a couple minutes to absorb excess moisture.
  4. Next, place the grapefruit halves in a baking dish face up. Drizzle each with 2 tsps of honey and 1 tsp cinnamon.
  5. Broil for 7-8 minutes. 
  6. Remove and let cool a few minutes before serving on their own or with dairy-free yogurt.
