Healthy Pear & Raspberry Crumble

Raspberry Pear Crumble


  • 4 large pears, peeled, cored, cut into 1.5cm pieces
  • 2 tbsp pure maple syrup
  • 1 tsp vanilla bean paste
  • 1 tbsp wholemeal spelt flour
  • 250g (2 cups) frozen raspberries
  • Greek yoghurt, to serve (optional)


    • 1/4 cup wholemeal spelt flour
    • 1/2 tsp baking powder
    • 1 cup rolled oats
    • 2 tbsp pure maple syrup
    • 1 tsp vanilla bean paste
    • 1 ½ tbsp olive oil spread


      1. Preheat oven to 190°C/170°C fan forced. Lightly grease a 1L (4-cup) baking dish.
      2. Combine the pears, maple syrup, vanilla, flour, and raspberries in a large bowl. Gently toss to combine. Transfer to prepared dish. Cover dish tightly with foil. Place on a large baking tray. Bake, stirring halfway through cooking, for 40 minutes or until the fruit is almost tender.
      3. Meanwhile, make the crumble. Combine the flour, baking powder, oats, maple syrup and vanilla in a bowl. Use your fingertips to rub the spread into the flour mixture until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
      4. Sprinkle crumble mixture over the fruit. Bake, uncovered, for 20 minutes or until topping is golden and pears are tender. Set aside for 5 minutes to cool slightly. Top with yoghurt to serve, if using.
