I’ve been a little obsessed with pears recently and have probably eaten one or two a day for the last week. It’s so hard to find a perfectly juicy pear, so when I found a whole bag of the organic bartlett variety at Trader Joe’s the other day, I knew I needed to stock up and enjoy them while they’re available.

However, instead of eating fruit yesterday, I filled up on pumpkin peanut butter cups and then promptly went into a sugar coma that left me useless for the rest of the day. Today I’m vowing to eat more fruit and vegetables and slightly less chocolate. (Note: I said slightly, not none at all. Who do you think I am?)

I ate nearly an entire head of kale for lunch, so I feel totally justified in getting some of my fruit servings in the form of vegan pear crisp. Because why eat a plain old pear when you can cover it in cinnamon and buttery oat crumble?

Pears make for an ideal alternative to more traditional apples in this simple and vegan pear crisp. And because they’re already so sweet, you only need a touch of sugar in the topping to make an indulgent dessert. Bake in ramekins to create individual crisps with instant portion control!
Ingredients
  • 4 ramekins
  • 4 pears (I used Bartlett, but Bosc would also be delicious)
  • 1/2 cup + 1/2 tablespoon all-purpose flour, divided
  • 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • 1/4 cup organic cane sugar
  • 1/4 cup earth balance buttery spread, melted
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 4 tablespoons filtered water
Instructions
  1. Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Chop the pears and place them in a medium bowl. Add to the pears: cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, and 1/2 tablespoon flour. Toss until the pears are evenly coated.
  3. Evenly distribute the pears in the ramekins. Add 1 tablespoon of water to each and set them aside.
  4. In a separate medium bowl, combine the remaining 1/2 cup flour, oats, sugar, 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, and melted buttery spread. The texture should be slightly dry and crumbly. Evenly distribute the topping into the ramekins.
  5. Set the ramekins on a baking sheet and bake for 30 minutes, or until the topping has turned golden brown and the pears are very tender. Allow to cool slightly before serving.
Notes
This pear crisp is delicious on its own, but would be even more amazing served with a scoop of your favorite (vegan) vanilla bean ice cream.

    Pears + cinnamon + portion control = perfection! I just bought pears from TJ’s and I know exactly what I’ll be using them for! All of your recipes are fabulous, by the way. Thanks for sharing. (:

      Thanks, Emily! The pears from TJs have been so good recently. I was expecting the worst since their produce can be hit or miss, but they’re great in this recipe (and by themselves).

      Just checked out your blog – love the recipe for vegan oatmeal cinnamon muffins! And you may have convinced me to try a wheatgrass shot too. ๐Ÿ™‚
