Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 lbs. apples about 4 medium, peeled, cored and cut into 1/4" thick slices*
  • 1 1/2 lbs. pears about 4 medium, peeled, cored and cut into 1/4" thick slices*
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon divided
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1 cup old fashioned rolled oats use certified GF if needed
  • 1 cup all purpose flour may substitute with 1 to 1 Gluten-Free flour
  • 1/3 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil melted (may substitute with melted butter)

Instructions 

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.  Grease a 9×13″ baking  dish and set aside.
  • Place the apple, pear, sugar, 1 teaspoon cinnamon, lemon juice and cornstarch in a large bowl and stir gently to combine.  Pour the mixture into the prepared pan in an even layer.
  • Combine the oats, flour, brown sugar, remaining 1 teaspoon cinnamon and salt in medium bowl.  Stir in the coconut oil until well moistened (or cut in cubes of cold butter to resemble a coarse meal).
  • Sprinkle the crumble evenly over the fruit mixture and bake in the middle rack of the oven for 50-60 minutes or until bubbly and golden brown.  If the crisp topping browns too quickly, cover it with foil until it’s finished baking.
  • Remove from heat and cool for at least 15 minutes on a wire rack.  Serve warm with ice cream if desired and enjoy!

Notes

  • I used a combination of Granny Smith and Pink Lady apples here, but any of your favorite baking apples will work perfectly.
  • Bosc and Anjou pears hold their shape better in baking recipes, but I used Bartlett pears and they worked out just fine.
  • The crisp may be assembled in advance and stored in the fridge until 30-45 minutes before baking time (bring to room temperature prior to baking for more even baking).
  • Leftovers may be stored in an air tight container at room temperature for 2-3 days or in the fridge for up to 5 days.
  • The granulated and brown sugars may be substituted with an equal amount of coconut sugar if you’d like to make this crisp refined sugar free.
  • Change it up and chopped walnuts or pecans in the crisp topping!
