This Vegan Gluten free Apple Pear Crisp is all I have been craving lately.  We all know apple crisp, but let me tell you, adding pears changes the game! I love the textural difference between the 2 fruits. During baking, the pears get super soft and supple, while the apples stay a little more firm.

If you want, you can cut the apples a little thinner and keep the pears as full slices. You’ll mix the sliced fruit with only a few other simple ingredients, just like we do with regular apple crisp.

Oftentimes I find fruit crisps a tad sweet. This one is naturally sweetened and generally not too sweet as we only use small amounts of maple syrup and coconut sugar.  Cinnamon finds its way into both filling and crisp topping and we’ll also add a touch of nutmeg for extra warm spice flavor.

The topping? Oh my goodness the crumble topping is so delicious. It’s a simple mix of almond butter, almond flour, nuts and oats – so gluten-free. It’s a crumbly oatmeal cookie on top!
