This healthy pear crumble recipe is Paleo and Vegan and a great way to use up ripe pears. It has a sweet, flavorful pear filling and a crisp, coconut and almond crumble topping.
- 4 ripe pears (650g) I used D'Anjou
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 Tbsp tapioca flour
- 1 tsp ground cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg (optional)
- 1/4 tsp ground ginger (optional)
- 1/4 tsp salt
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
- Make the Filling: Chop pears, removing the stem and core, then place in a large mixing bowl. Add remaining filling ingredients and mix until the pears are well coated. Pour the filling into an 8" x 8" baking pan.
- Make the Crumble: Combine the almond flour, tapioca flour, flaked coconut, cinnamon and salt in a large mixing bowl. Add in the shortening and maple syrup. Mix with a fork, then use your hands. Once the dough is barely mixed together (still slightly crumbly), use your hands to crumble the topping over the filling. Gently press down with your hands.
- Place the crumble in the oven and bake at 350 degrees F for 35 minutes.
- Cool slightly and serve warm, or refrigerate overnight and serve chilled.
