This Paleo Pear and Almond Crisp makes for an ultra-decadent dessert. Buttery, tender caramelized pears are topped with a crunchy-edged oaty almond crumble. This pear and almond crisp with an absolutely delicious crumble topping is the perfect cozy fall/winter dessert – warm, homey, and perfectly balanced. I’m in love!

This dessert is also super easy to make, and it takes only 30 minutes to make. If you want to make it for a bigger crowd, double the recipe (for both the filling and the topping) and use a single baking dish.

Long evenings call for cozy desserts. Grab a bowl of my Paleo & gluten free Pear and Almond Crisp and enjoy. 🙂

How to Make Paleo Pear and Almond Crisp

What you need

Filling:
  • 1/8 cup almond meal/flour
  • 1/8 cup coconut sugar
  • 2 cups peeled and cubed pears
  • Juice from 1/2 lemon
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
Topping:
  • 1/2 cup almond meal
  • 1/4 cup coconut sugar
  • pinch of salt
  • 4 Tbsp (1/2 stick) cold, unsalted butter
  • 1/4 cup gluten free quick oats
  • 1/2 cup sliced almonds, divided
  • 1/4 tsp almond extract
  • Vanilla ice cream, to serve (optional)

Preparation

For the Pear Filling:
  1. Preheat oven to 350 F.
  2. In a small bowl, stir together 1/8 cup almond flour, 1/8 cup coconut sugar, lemon juice and 1/4 tsp vanilla.
  3. In small ramekins, divide the pears. Sprinkle on top with your almond flour/coconut sugar mixture.
For the Topping:
  1. In a medium mixing bowl, combine and mix 1/2 cup almond flour, 1/4 cup coconut sugar, 1/4 tsp almond extract, and a pinch of salt. Add 1/2 stick diced cold butter to the mixture and mix everything with your hands until butter is pea-sized.
  2. Add 1/4 cup gluten-free oats and use your hands to make large crumbs, rubbing the mixture between your fingers. Add 1/4 cup sliced almonds and toss to combine.
  3. Spread the crumble topping evenly over the pears in each ramekin, and sprinkle on the second 1/4 cup sliced almonds. Bake uncovered at 350˚F for 35 – 40 minutes, or until almonds are golden brown and pear juices are bubbling at the edges. Let crisp cool at least 15 minutes before serving.

  1. Technically oats (Avena) are in the weed family as a cereal grain, which means, oats are not exactly Paleo. What could you substitute oats with without changing the flavour or structure? Thanks.

    1. Thanks, Callie! Yes, this warm pear & almond crisp is perfect for this cool and rainy weather. 🙂

  2. Yum! I have never tried pear crisp but I love pears and almonds together, so I’m eager to give it a go! Pinning 🙂

    1. Yes, pears and almonds is a lovely combination. Hope you give it a try, I am sure you will love it!

    1. Thanks, Catherine! Me too, I love fruit desserts in the summer, they are the best – juicy & flavorful!

  4. LOVE fall crisps. This recipe looks delicious – I haven’t done anything with pears recently. Definitely a dessert / breakfast option. 😉
