Good Things Come in Pears

Even though cold weather isn’t my cup of tea, I do enjoy the delicious fruit available at this time of year. There’s just something about a juicy pear, a fragrant orange, or a crisp apple that makes the frost on the ground a little more bearable.

Healthy Pear Crisp

Not only is this pear crisp delicious, but it offers and abundance of beneficial nutrients as well.

Studies show that eating an abundance of fruit helps protect against cancer, macular degeneration, and heart disease, and can help lower blood pressure and cholesterol.

The topping of this lovely crisp is made with whole-grain oats. Oats contain soluble fiber which helps the body regulate blood sugar better. And several studies show that eating oats can help reduce blood pressure.

Both the pears and the oats in this delicious crisp are a great source of antioxidants, including tocotrienols and avenanthramides. And both pears and oats promote gut health.

And this pear crisp is loaded with slimming whole grains and omega-3-rich walnuts, so it’s a more slimming option than crisps that have white flour and white sugar in the ingredients.

The soluble fiber found in the oaty topping of this healthy pear crisp also helps with appetite control, which, of course, can help with weight loss.

And, oh the aroma when it’s baking! My house smells amazing right now!!

  • Place oats, almond flour, date sugar, salt, and oil in a food processor and pulse just until mixed. Mixture should resemble coarse crumbs. Do not over mix – you don’t want the oats to turn to flour.
  • Add honey and pulse several times until mixed. Mixture should be crumbly, but moist. Add a tablespoon or so of water or apple juice if needed to make the mixture moist.
  • Add nuts and pulse just until mixed. Set aside.
  • In a large mixing bowl, stir together juice concentrate, honey, and cornstarch or arrowroot.
  • Wash and peel pears. Cut in half lengthwise and remove core. Dice into small (1/2-inch) pieces and place into bowl. Mix well. (I use my food chopper to cut the pears quickly so they don’t turn brown.)
  • Transfer pear mixture to an oiled 8-inch x 8-inch baking dish. Evenly distribute topping mixture over pears.
  • Cover and bake at 350°F for 15 minutes. Remove cover and bake for an additional 15 to 20 minutes or until topping in nicely browned. Different varieties of honey will cause the topping to brown at different rates, so adjust baking time as needed. Serve warm or cold.


  1. Regular rolled oats work best in this recipe, but quick-cooking oats will work fine too.
  2. If you don’t have almond flour, white flour can be used; however, almond flour is a much healthier option.
  3. A food processor makes an easy job of mixing and mixes the ingredients well, but in a pinch you can use a fork to mix the ingredients.

    I made this to see if it’s as good as it looks. It is! I even cut down on the sugar a little. Scrumptious!
