This fresh and easy dessert (or breakfast) dish cooks up quick and tastes decadent, although it is very light and made with very little fat and whole grains for good nutrition no one will ever guess is in there! I combined two recipes from my great aunt and made healthy substitutions to make it very low in fat, filled with whole grain goodness and guilt free without sacrificing any of the taste.
My Private Note
Units: US | Metric
- 1/4 cup whole wheat flour
- 1/2 cup light brown sugar, packed
- 1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
- 1/8 teaspoon salt
- 2/3 cup old-fashioned oatmeal
- 1/4 cup canola oil
- 6 -7 ripe pears, sliced into 1/8-inch thin slices
- 2 teaspoons lemon juice
- 2 tablespoons sugar (optional)
- 2 tablespoons fresh ginger, grated
- 1/8 teaspoon lemon zest
- 1 tablespoon white flour
- 1Preheat oven to 375.
- 2Prepare the crumble topping by combining the first six ingredients and blending with a fork until moistened.
- 3Prepare the pears by peeling and then slicing the pears (discard the core) and tossing with lemon, white flour and if desired, the 2 tbsp of sugar. (I have made it without this added sugar, because my pears were nice and sweet by themselves).
- 4Spray a shallow dish with butter flavored cooking spray, then layer the pears evenly. Sprinkle the crumble topping over the pears.
- 5Bake about 30-35 minutes on center oven rack until the crumble is a golden brown.
- 6This is best served slightly warm or at room temperature. I finish with a dollop of freshly whipped cream, or vanilla ice cream and watch it dissappear!
- 7Enjoy and be blessed.
