Apple Pear Crisp

Last week I signed up for my first Green BEAN Delivery order* (I love supporting local farmers and artisans), and I decided to order organic red Starkrimson pears, golden delicious apples, gala apples, and honey crisp apples from the produce selection. (I guess you could say that autumn was on the brain!) This dessert is gluten-free, dairy-free, paleo and vegan–no grains, no added sugar, and no eggs.

Fruit Filling Ingredients:

  • 3 pears and 3 to 4 apples
  • 1/4 cup orange juice or apple juice
  • 3 tbsp maple syrup
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp apple pie spice or nutmeg

Crisp Topping Ingredients: 

  • 1 cup almond flour
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 2 tbsp melted coconut oil

Directions, Part 1: Pre-heat oven to 350. Mix all of the filling ingredients in a large bowl. Place the mixture in a greased pie pan. Bake for 45 minutes. Mix the topping ingredients in a medium bowl.

Directions, Part 2: Add the topping on the fruit mixture by carefully spreading it around with your fingers, making sure to cover the entire area. Bake for 20 more minutes at 350, or until the top is browned. Enjoy the crisp in a bowl with whipped topping or ice cream! My favorite whipped topping is So Delicious Coco Whip.

If you’d like to use only apples (and no pears), it would be delicious that way too! Let me know if you like it. Happy autumn and happy baking…

Love, Ali
