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



  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. 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 a 7" x 11" or 8" square baking dish.
  3. 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.
  4. Place the crumble in the oven and bake at 350 degrees F for 35 minutes.
  5. Cool slightly and serve warm, or refrigerate overnight and serve chilled.
