Pear Crisp

World, meet my new favorite fruit dessert – pear crisp!

Apple crisps and pies have been a favorite of mine since as long as I could remember. If I’m picking favourites, I have to admit, crisps are my go-to. I absolutely love that buttery, sugary, oat crumble topping. Add a scoop or two of vanilla ice cream and I’m in dessert heaven.

It’s no surprise that I have a sweet tooth but I used to always gravitate towards all things chocolate, until this past year. Don’t get me wrong, chocolate still holds a VERY large place in my heart. Some days I just need an ooey gooey chocolate soufflé or chewy brownie.. However, this year I started classifying myself more as a dessert enthusiast than a chocoholic. I love all dessert. Fruit crisps are one at the top of my list.

This pear crisp is so easy to make; it only requires 6 ingredients.

You will need:

pears

rolled oats

coconut sugar

flour

cinnamon

butter

Pear Crisp (6 to 7 inch skillet or baking dish)

larger serving option: double the recipe and use a 9-10inch casserole dish

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups chopped pears
  • 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • 1/4 cup brown rice flour (or all-purpose flour)
  • 1/3 cup coconut sugar
  • 4 tbsp butter

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350F degrees.
  2. Chop pears and place in a skillet or oven-safe baking dish.

happy cooking,

Sarah

  1. Thank you! Yes, you can use coconut oil as long as it is in it’s solid state. 🙂
