Apple Pear Crumble with Ginger

March 3, 2021

Apple pear crumble

With a nod to my Foix friend Sanna Phinney, I share with you this super simple dessert. It’s was Sanna’s delicious recipe that she prepared for our welcome meal that served as an inspiration.  


4 apples, cored and cut into chunks

4 pears, cored and cut into chunks

1 T Fresh Ginger – finely grated

2-4 T maple or date syrup or honey


½ cup each of pumpkin, sunflower, and hemp seeds

1 cup of Almonds, Walnuts, or Pecans or a mixture

1 cup coconut flakes or chips

1 t cinnamon

¼ t of freshly grated nutmeg

¼ t of vanilla powder or  1 t of vanilla extract

½  to ¾ cup of melted coconut oil

1-2 T maple or date  syrup or honey (more depending on desired sweetness)


Preheat oven to 350 degrees

Mix the fruit, ginger, and syrup together and pour into a baking dish.

In a food processor lightly process the seeds, nuts, and coconut leaving texture.  You can also use a blender but be careful not to over-process.

In a mixing bowl combine spices, oil, and maple syrup with the nuts.  You may need to adjust the proportions by adding more syrup to taste or a bit more oil if it is too dry.  You will want all of the mixture lightly coated. 

Place in preheated oven and bake for 35-40 mins.  The top should be golden brown and the fruit should be fork tender.  

Serve warm or at room temperature.  Consider topping with coconut ice cream or a plant-based whipped topping.
