  • 5 cups pears unpeeled, chopped, cored
  • ½ cup sucanat divided
  • ½ cup + 2 Tbsp whole wheat flour divided
  • ¾ tsp cinnamon divided
  • tsp nutmeg
  • tsp cloves
  • ½ cup old-fashioned rolled oats
  • ¼ cup pecans chopped
  • tsp baking soda
  • tsp baking powder
  • tsp Celtic sea salt
  • ¼ cup coconut oil melted

Maple Whipped Cream (omit if vegan)

  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 2 Tbsp pure maple syrup



  • Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  • In a large bowl, combine the prepared pears, ¼ cup of sucanat, 2 tablespoons of flour, ½ teaspoon of cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves. Toss to combine the ingredients and transfer to an 8-inch ceramic baking dish.
  • Using the same bowl, add the oats, remaining flour, remaining sugar, pecans, remaining cinnamon, baking soda, baking powder, and sea salt.
  • Mix the dry ingredients before adding the melted coconut oil.
  • Incorporate the oil and spread the crumble mixture over the pears in the baking dish.
  • Bake for 40-45 minutes, until the top starts to get golden brown. If the pears were firm when raw, they should now be easily pierced with a fork. Let cool for at least 10 minutes before serving.

Maple Whipped Cream (omit if vegan)

  • While the crisp is cooling, pour the whipping cream and vanilla in the bowl of a stand mixer.
  • Using the whipping attachment, whip the cream on medium-high speed until it is light and fluffy.
  • Add the maple syrup and continue whipping until it regains its fluffy consistency.


If a nut allergy is a concern, this recipe can be made my simply omitting the pecans. (If you can have them though, I highly recommend adding them!)
