Vegan Pear and Hazelnut Crisp

I recently picked up a big bag of red pears for $3 from the farmer’s market, and kept thinking about the crumble from the final Red & Black Vegan Family Style Dinner, so I spent a morning make this Pear and Hazelnut Crisp.
Honestly, all I did was veganize this Allrecipes.com recipe, change the cut of the pear and add in some maple.
And it was so, so easy to do.

Ingredients:

3 pears – peeled if desired, and cut into cubed (I used red pears)
1 teaspoon of lemon juice
1 tablespoon of maple syrup
1.5 tablespoons of brown sugar
3 tablespoons oats (I used barley oats)
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Pinch ground ginger
1 dash ground nutmeg
Teeny dash sea salt
1 tablespoon cold earth balance
2 tablespoons chopped nuts (I used hazelnut)

Directions:

1. Lightly grease something along the lines of a pie plate of 8x8 baking dish. I used a pie plate that was graciously donated to me by the amazing Julie Hasson. I know that helped this dish out.
2. Toss the pear cubes with the lemon juice and maple syrup.
3. In a medium sized bowl, combine the flour, spices, brown sugar and sea salt. Cut in butter until crumbly and then add the nuts.
4. Sprinkle the crumb topping over the pears and bake at 350 degrees F for 30-35 minutes.
If you choose not to cube the pears, starting checking on it after 25 minutes.

FYI, I halved this recipe in the photographed dish above.


Didn’t I tell you it was easy?

The sad part - I only had a serving before leaving for my work trip.

I just made this and it turned out pretty well (it smelled delicious while baking). I had some smallish pears so I erred on the side of caution and put in what I thought was a lot of pears :) Thanks for veganizing this recipe.
