Enjoy this Healthy Stuffed Pear Crisp made with just 10 ingredients for the perfect holiday treat! Free of refined flour, sugar, and butter, they're a decadent treat you can enjoy all season long! Vegan and gluten-free.


Units Scale
  • 4 large ripe pears, halved and de-seeded (I used a spoon, use a melon baller if you have one)
  • 1/3 cup Bob's Red Mill oat flour (can sub flour of choice, use certified gluten-free if necessary)
  • 1/4 cup coconut sugar (or brown sugar)
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil (not melted)
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup old fashioned oats (use certified gluten-free if necessary)
  • 1/4 cup walnuts
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • pinch of salt


  1. Preheat oven to 350F. Form a cavity in each pear for the filling. Arrange prepared pears in a baking dish sprayed with cooking spray. Set aside.
  2. Place oat flour and coconut sugar in the bowl of a food processor. Add coconut oil and vanilla and pulse until the mixture resembles small crumbs. (Alternatively, you can do this step in a bowl using a pastry cutter).
  3. Add the oats, walnuts, cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice and salt. Process for about 20 seconds longer, or until well-combined.
  4. Fill each pear half with a couple spoonfuls of the topping. Place evenly in baking dish. Bake for 32-35 minutes or until pears are tender (use a fork to test if you're not sure).
