I love fruit crisps. Blueberry, rhubarb, peach, it doesn’t matter. My favorite will probably be the kind I had growing up~ apple.
A few weeks ago, I was out at my dad’s place to help pick pears and came home with pears and apples. What better thing to make? Apple Pear Crisp.
The two fruits blend together wonderfully.
This makes a big pan so plenty for a potluck or big family.
You will need a 9×13 inch cake pan.
Preheat your oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit/ 191 Celsius.
6 cups peeled, cored, and sliced apples (about 6 apples)
6 cups peeled, cored, and sliced pears (6-8 pears depending on type and size)
3/4- 1 cup brown sugar
1 cup all-purpose flour OR 2/3 cup coconut flour
1 cup oats
1/2 cup butter ( 1 stick)
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon nutmeg
In a large bowl: combine the flour, brown sugar, oats, cinnamon, and nutmeg. With your hands or a fork, work in the butter until crumbly.
Spread the peeled, cored, and sliced fruit in the pan evenly.
Sprinkle the brown sugar mixture evenly over the pears and apples.
Bake for 45 minutes in the preheated oven or until the fruit slices are soft when you insert a knife into a couple.
Take out of the oven and remove to a rack to cool.
Coconut flour adds a little more nutrition, but it will be drier and won’t end up making it clump together. The crisp will also darken quicker.

For some reason I have never enjoyed apple anything. My mother used to make apple crumble and I would never eat it. Apple pies leave me cold although I have made them for hubby.
You could always use all pears. 🙂
