Summer Pear Crumble

Wheat free

Serves 2


For the pear filling:

  • 2 ripe pears, cored and diced
  • ¼ tsp ground ginger and/or ½ tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • 1 tsp xylitol

For the crumble

  • 1 tbsp coconut oil or olive oil
  • 1 tbsp xylitol
  • 50g whole oat flakes
  • 1 tbsp flaked almonds
  • 1 tbsp macadamia nuts, roughly chopped
  • 1 tbsp pumpkin seeds
  • 1 tbsp ground almonds


  • For the pear filling, place the pears in a saucepan along with the ginger or cinnamon, lemon juice and the teaspoon of xylitol. Cover and stew gently until the fruit softens, stirring from time to time to prevent it from sticking.
  • While that is cooking, make the crumble. Gently heat the oil in a frying pan with the xylitol, add the oats and fry for 3 minutes, or until they start to colour and harden slightly.
  • Add the flaked almonds and macadamia nuts and cook for a further 2 minutes.
  • Remove from the heat and stir in the pumpkin seeds and ground almonds.

Divide the cooked pear between two ramekins and cover with the crumble. Serve warm.
