Healthy Pear Crumble
Pears. The forgotten fruit. The fruit that lost all its identity and exists in the shadow of those famous apples. When you look at them, you can’t help but wonder whether they’re a very misshaped apple. They aren’t. They’re juicy and sweet and absolutely delicious. Way more delicious than apples in my opinion. And my opinion is super important, okay. So when my dad got me some pears from the tree that grows next to the house he was born, I took those actually organic pears and made this super delicious pear crumble. It’s made in a pan on the stovetop and it’s absolutely delicious.
Pears Are Super Healthy
Yes, they are as you can read in this article. They’re low in calories, rich in fiber, vitamin C, K and multiple non-essential antioxidants that can benefit your health in so many ways – like reducing inflammation, improving your overall immune system and thus preventing disease.
Pears are also great for your gut health and digestion, since they’re a great source of soluble and insoluble fiber. One medium pear covers about 22% of your daily fiber needs. Which I guess is no secret to anyone who’s had to deal with a constipated baby at some point in their life.
Btw. do you know what those actual “organic” pears that my dad gave me looked like? They weren’t pretty – they were small and some had holes in them. We ate them all. Here’s how I prepared the pear crumble.
How To Make Pear Crumble On The Stovetop
The first thing you’ll need to do is make the crumble. Which is pretty simple – all you need to do is blend some oats, nuts, coconut, cinnamon and water in a food processor or a blender.
Cook that mixture in a pan for 3-4 minutes. Then transfer to a bowl and let it cool off to get more crispy while you’re preparing the pears. You can also easily make this ahead for the week.
To prepare the pears the first thing you’ve got to do is wash your pears very well, remove the seeds and chop in cubes.
Saute them in the same pan you used to make the crumble. You can also use some honey if your pears aren’t sweet enough, but I only added some coconut oil and cinnamon and the pears turned out delicious!
Place the pears in a bowl, add the crumble and top with your favorite toppings!
For the toppings you can go whichever way you want, here are some suggestions:
- probiotic yogurt (use dairy-free yogurt if you’re intolerant or don’t eat dairy)
- honey or maple syrup
- natural almond butter or other type of nut butter
- whipped coconut cream
- or you know what – ice cream!
You can also add some almond milk or any other type of milk you like to eat this pear crumble kinda like granola.
