Okay, maybe put a sweater on too. Don’t want you to catch a cold. Sniffles aside, this crisp makes a great dessert or breakfast option. The warm, goey pear base is topped with crunchy granola-like topping that’s dotted with warming, winter spices. Diving into a bowl of it though, you’d never know it’s actually good for you! Refined sugar free and filled with fiber and healthy fats, this easy dish will keep you full and satisfied.

Delicious hot or cold, this crisp is perfect for meal prep. I love to reheat mine in the oven for a few minutes and top it with some extra crushed walnuts and yogurt before diving in. If you’re feeling a bit more on the decadent side, enjoy it out of the oven with a hearty scoop of vanilla ice cream and a drizzle of honey or agave. Yum!
