Healthy Pear & Berry Nut Crumbles

These Healthy Pear & Berry Nut Crumbles are the perfect start to the day (or a completely guilt-free dessert). They’re packed full of fresh fruit and then topped with a cinnamon, nut and oat crumble. Serve with greek yoghurt and extra berries for an extra yummy kick. 

Healthy Pear & Berry Nut Crumbles

Last year when Dave and I were in Canada we went to a bakery in Banff that one of my friends had recommended. OMG it was seriously the best recommendation ever! We left Calgary really early in the morning and had breakfast at the yummy little bakery. If you ever happen to go there, I’m pretty sure it was called ‘Wild Flour Bakery’ and boy oh boy it was good.

Anyway, I had the yummiest fruit and nut crumble, and after eating it I couldn’t wait to go home and make my own version. It was honestly that good! Plus eating crumble for breakfast is like eating dessert first thing in the morning… perfect, right? Except it’s healthy so you don’t even need to feel the slightest bit guilty (not that you should ever feel guilty about eating dessert!).

This Healthy Pear & Berry Nut Crumble is the bomb…. and I don’t take breakfast lightly. It’s a big deal around here. Hehehe yes I’m quite the nerd when it comes to breakfast. I just love it.

Since we’ve been home, I’ve made this crumble about a zillion times. Each time I mix and match the nuts I use in the cupboard (mainly so that I don’t have to make ANOTHER trip to the supermarket… ugh!!!). I’ve also used different fruits in the base too.

I personally love to make mini crumbles, but you can definitely make one big crumble if you prefer. This recipe will serve about 4 (with generous servings). I usually whip up a big batch on the weekend and then we eat them during the week – I mean really, who doesn’t love a quick and easy midweek breakfast. You can serve them warm or cold – it’s totally up to you! If you’re reheating them, just pop them into the microwave for about 1-2 minutes. And don’t forget to pop a good scoop of greek yoghurt on top… and a few fresh berries too.

Now I have to say that these Pear & Berry Nut Crumbles certainly aren’t as sweet as my Super Easy Apple Crumble, but they really don’t need to be. The combination of the fruit and nuts makes it the perfect breaky… and a really nice change from my usual start to the day – and the fruit gives it just the right amount of sweetness!

So my lovelies, if you’re after a yummy new breakfast recipe or a healthy dessert, then this really is for you!

Cook Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 25 minutes
Servings: 4
Author: Bake Play Smile

Ingredients

  • 2 pears peeled and chopped into 2cm chunks
  • 125 g strawberries chopped
  • 125 blueberries
  • 1 1/2 cups rolled oats
  • 1 cup mixed nuts macadamia, almond, walnut, cashews etc, roughly chopped
  • 1/4 cup seeds pepita, sunflower etc
  • 1/4 cup toasted coconut flakes optional
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 2 tbs coconut oil
  • 3 tbs rice malt syrup

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 180 degrees.
  • Place the peeled and chopped pear chunks into a saucepan with 1/2 cup water.
  • Stir over medium heat for 3-4 minutes or until just starting to soften (but not so much that they go mushy!!).
  • Remove from heat and drain.
  • Add the blueberries and chopped strawberries to the cooked pear and set aside.
  • Place the rolled oats, chopped nuts, seeds, coconut flakes (optional) and cinnamon into a bowl and stir.
  • Place the coconut oil and rice malt syrup into a microwave-safe bowl and heat on high for 30 seconds, or until melted.
  • Pour the liquid over the oats/nut mixture and mix well (don't worry if the mixture is still crumbly, it's meant to be that way!).
  • Divide the pear and berry mixture between 4 individual oven proof dishes (alternatively you can make one big batch).
  • Top with the crumble mixture and bake for 15 minutes or until the crumble has just started to turn a light golden colour.
  • Serve warm or cold with yoghurt.
  • *Note: If you have any leftover crumble mixture, place it on a tray and bake in the oven, stirring every 5 minutes until lightly golden. Allow to cool completely and then place into an airtight container - this makes a really yummy toasted muesli!
