Healthy Pear Crisp

Hello friends! Happy 1st Friday in December! This is my favorite time of year! Something magical and special and all the twinkling lights make my heart so happy.  Over the past few days the Hubs and I set up 2 trees and sprinkled other decorations all around the house.  I found the AMAZING sign at my local Hobby Lobby and it brings joy to my heart each time we light it up!

This time of year brings me into the kitchen even more than normal!  Can I just say how wonderful it has been to be able to cook and bake in a real kitchen!  I am so thankful for our new kitchen and the space it has to allow me to bring joy to others through delicious food!
I have been craving pears lately and earlier this week had a hinkering for a crisp.  I decided to put my 2 cravings together and whip up a healthier version of the apple crisp I grew up making.  The coconut sugar helps to bring out the natural sugars in the pears without being overly sweet. I really feel I could eat some of this for breakfast in place of my overnight oats and feel good about it 🙂

Today I am linking up with Farrah from Fairyburger, Annmarie from the Fit Foodie Mama, and Jess from Hello to Fit for a Holiday Baking themed week!

Healthy Pear Crisp {Gluten Free}


  1. Pre-heat oven to 375* F.
  2. Grease, with coconut oil, a med size baking dish, I used 9 x 7.
  3. In a medium mixing bowl mix the oats, brown sugar, gf flour, and 1/2 cinnamon together. Add the coconut oil until the mixture is crumbly.
  4. In a separate mixing bowl, add together the coconut sugar, almond flour, and remaining cinnamon.  Add the pear slices and mix till coated.
  5. Spread pears in the baking dish and cover evenly with the oat mixture.
  6. Bake for 30-35 min or until the pears are soft.
  7. Let the crisp cool slightly and serve with or without ice cream.
