Individual Pear and Apple Crisps Recipe

These are delicious, quick, and healthy desserts. They're great for breakfast with a big dollop of vanilla Greek yoghurt. You can also add vanilla bean ice cream or maple-sweetened whipped cream.  


– 4 D’Anjou pears or Gala apple – Scant ½ cup rolled oat – Scant ½ cup white whole wheat flour or regular whole wheat flour – ¼ cup turbinado (raw) sugar – ½ teaspoon cinnamon – ¼ teaspoon ginger – ¼ teaspoon nutmeg – pinch of salt – 2 tablespoons and 2 teaspoons melted butter – 2 tablespoons plain or vanilla Greek yogurt – 2 teaspoons real maple syrup

Start by preheating the oven to 400 degrees and preparing a large baking pan, preferably one that measures 13 inches by 9 inches.

Step 1


A paring knife should be used to carefully remove the cores from the pears and/or apples after they have been cut in half. Throw away the cores.

Step 2

Mix all of the remaining ingredients together in a bowl of medium size. For a thorough mixing, use a large spoon.

Step 3

Make a mound of dough by scooping approximately two tablespoons of dough onto each half of the pear or apple and then smushing it with your hands. If you want the top to be golden, bake it for twenty-five minutes.
