Dairy Free - Baked Pear Crumble

Updated: May 29, 2023

Collaborating with Loving Life With Lemons again this week. Kerry shares: using my Hero Go fruit and veggie box this week I wanted to create another dairy free sweet treat that reminded me of my childhood, yet super nutritious and something the kiddies would also enjoy! I used the pears from my box to make this nutritious dairy free pear crumble which is so easy to put together! Adding nuts and seeds to the layer of oaty crumble coats the sweet, soft cinnamon pears perfectly! Add some homemade custard or nice cream to make this a delicious and healthy a family favorite!

For the pear mixture

  • 4 big pears or 4 cups of diced pears into 1cm pieces (If the pears are not ripe or sweet enough, add 1tbspofmaple syrup to sweeten)

  • 1 tbsp Lemon Juice

  • 1 tsp cinnamon

  • 1/2 tbsp arrowroot flour (or cornstarch)

For the crumble topping

  • 1cup rolled oats – Blended into a flour using a blender

  • 1/2 cup gluten free flour

  • 1tbsp sweetener of choice (I used Monk fruit )

  • 2 tsp cinnamon

  • 1/2 tsp salt

  • 2 tbsp almonds, sliced or chopped

  • 3 tbsp vegan butter

  • 2tbsp pumpkin seeds, chopped


  1. Preheat the oven to 180C or 350F and grease 9–10-inch baking dish with coconut oil. I like to use a ceramic dish.

  2. Add the chopped pears into a medium sized bowl, add the lemon juice, cinnamon, and arrowroot flour tocover. (The arrowroot or corn starch helps the mixture thicken while cooking but not essential )

  3. Mix the ingredients together untilwell-combined. Spoon the pear mixture into your prepared baking dish andset aside.

  4. To make the crumble mixture, in a separate bowl, add the flours, almonds, oats, sweetener, pumpkin seeds,cinnamon, and salt and mix well.

  5. Using your fingers, add the vegan butter and start to crumble into the mixture. Then using a fork start to mixit all together. It should look and feel crumbly.

  6. Top the pears with the crumble mixture evenly, breaking up any larger clumps. Place into the oven andbake till the edges are bubbly and the top is a beautiful golden brown, approx. 40minutes.

  7. Let the crumble cool for several minutes before serving.


To store:

Store the crumble in the refrigerator for up to 3-4 days.

Remember, the crumble topping may lose some of its crispness when stored and reheated, but it should still taste delicious.
