Vegan Pear Crisp with Quinoa











Hell0 & Happy Thursday!!








If there is one dessert concept that truly captures the essence of cold weather, it’s a fruit crisp! They can easily be thrown together and you can pair them with whatever fruit you’re craving, making the options endless. 


Typically fruit crisps feature white flour and refined sugar, but you can easily get around using those commonplace ingredients. With a little almond flour and maple syrup you can mirror this classic dish!









What’s fab about this dish, is everything! It’s quick, easy, affordable, flavorful, contains no white flour or sugar, packed with fruit, contains minimal added sugar with the natural sweetness being derived from the fruit, perf for winter, packed with quinoa for added protein, you can even throw in some hemp seeds for more healthy protein, and perfect for entertaining!

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray an 8-inch square baking dish with cooking spray.
  2. Place peeled, sliced pears in a large bowl. Add vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg, and ¼ teaspoon salt; toss to coat.
  3. Transfer pears to the prepared baking dish.
  4. In a separate bowl, use a fork (or your fingers) to mix together vegan butter, almond flour, oats, pecans, quinoa, hemp seeds, and salt until completely combined. The mixture will be lumpy, which is fine.
  5. Spread topping evenly over the pears.
  6. Sprinkle with more cinnamon, if desired.
  7. Bake for 45 minutes, or until the top becomes golden brown and crispy and the pears are soft. Remove from the oven and let cool for 5-10 minutes.
  8. Serve warm or at room temperature. Top with vanilla ice cream!
