Pear Ginger Crumble
By Ellie Krieger, Food Network


  • 1/4 cup oat flour or whole wheat flour
  • 2/3 cup old-fashioned oats
  • 1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup canola oil


  • 3 pounds firm but ripe pears, peeled, cored and cut into 1/4-inch slices
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon freshly grated ginger
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons all-purpose flour

    Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.

    For the topping: Combine the ingredients in a medium bowl and work together with a fork or with your fingertips until the ingredients are moistened.

    For the filling: Combine the pears slices, lemon juice, and ginger in a large bowl. Add the sugar and flour and toss to blend.

  • Spray an 8 by 8-inch baking dish with cooking spray.
  • Transfer the pear mixture to the dish. Sprinkle the topping over the pears.
  • Bake crumble until the pears are tender and the topping is golden brown, about 40 minutes.
  • Let cool for 10 minutes before serving. Serve warm or at room temperature, with a scoop of ice cream, if desired.
