Pear & Ginger Crumble

I’ve been on a baking tear recently with so much time spent at home, and I’m starting to get excited with all of the fall fruit showing up in abundance at the farmer’s market!

I was poking around the HEA archives and found this crumble that I used to make all the time in Los Angeles when Marlowe was a baby! I had totally forgotten about it, and it’s still one of my favorite SUPER easy desserts. I especially love that you can make it with dairy substitutes so easily!

I love to enjoy this with a simple coconut milk ice cream, but feel free to also try out a regular chocolate ice cream…that’s how my kids enjoy it these days!

I wanted to bake up a sweet treat that still tastes like fall, but is a little more unexpected, and this Pear & Ginger Crumble does just the trick! The ginger brings a sexy bite to the sweet and seasonal pears, and that oaty-sweet crumble on top is the coziest and most delicious crust.

I adapted this recipe from this one by Ellie Krieger, but since I made quite a few changes, I figured I would include my adaptation below for an easier follow-along:
