Slow Roasted Pear Crumble

This slow roasted pear crumble is simply amazing. I did not set out to make a pear crumble recipe at first. I am not even a huge fan of pears, but my husband and my daughter Meadow love them.  I do love a good fruit crumble recipe though. Since we ended up getting a bag of pears in our co op basket this past weekend, I decided to slow cook them in the crock pot to see how they would turn out. The smell in the house that day was amazing.  A Yankee Candle had nothing on these babies.  The pears came out so delicious in fact that even I had some.  I decided to boost them into even more awesomeness with the addition of a crumb topping.

It worked.  Marcus said they were the best part of his lunch this week.  This dish would be a perfect addition to your Thanksgiving meal.  I’m making it this holiday season for sure.

  3. Take some of the liquid from the crock pot and add it to the pears.
  4. For the crumb topping
  5. Preheat oven to 350.
  6. In a food processor , combine all the ingredients and pulse until the oats are sticking together.
  7. Sprinkle the mixture on top of the pears.
  8. Bake in the oven for about 30 minutes. Enjoy!

      1. I plan on making this for Turkey day... is there anything I can use to bind the oats besides coconut? My mom doesn't like coconut flavor...
  1. I had some extra pears so I searched your blog and found this recipe. Wow wow wow!!!! It is amazingly delicious. I have made a few crumbles before but never been happy with the outcome, it has always been too buttery. But this recipe has no butter so it's not an issue. I had 3 pears so I halved the pear slow cooker ingredients in your recipe; and I wanted lots of crumble so I made 1-1/2 times the crumble ingredients in your recipe; and I baked it in a 5x9 loaf pan. PERFECTION! I think this would be great with many other types of fruit also. Thanks!
    1. Awesome! Glad you liked it! I actually make a healthy apple cobbler in a similar way.
