  • ¼ cup apple juice
  • ¼ cup pure maple syrup

  • 1 teaspoon minced ginger root
  • Crisp Topping:
  • 1¼ cup gluten free rolled oats
  • ½ cup almond flour

  • 1 tablespoon coconut palm sugar
  • 2 tablespoons raw pumpkin seeds
  • 2 tablespoons hemp seeds
  • ½ cup crushed raw walnuts
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons melted vegan butter (I used Earth Balance)
  • 2 tablespoons melted coconut oil
  • ¼ cup pure maple syrup
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a large bowl combine filling ingredients and stir until apples and pears are completely coated.
  3. Pour the pear and apple filling into a large oven-safe baking dish.
  4. In the same large bowl used to make filling, add rolled oats, almond flour, shredded coconut, coconut palm sugar, pumpkin seeds, hemp seeds, walnuts, cinnamon, and salt and stir to combine.
  5. In a smaller bowl whisk together the melted vegan butter, melted coconut oil, and maple syrup and pour into the bowl with the other topping ingredients, stir to combine.
  6. Crumble the crisp topping over the filling in the baking dish and pack down gently.
  7. Bake covered with lid or foil for 25 min, then remove lid/foil and continue baking for 15-20 more minutes or until top is golden and juices are bubbling around edges.
  8. Remove from oven and let cool 20 minutes before serving.
Optional: Serve wth a scoop of dairy free vanilla ice cream or coconut yogurt (I used Yoso coconut yogurt for this batch) and drizzle with Pinch Of Yum's 5-Minute Magic Vegan Caramel Sauce (highly recommended!)
