Roasted Pears Stuffed With Cinnamon Oat Crumble

The pears are cut in half right down the middle and stuffed with a delicious spiced cinnamon oat based crumble. The pears are brushed with butter/vegan butter and baked until golden brown. Delicious served for breakfast or dessert, along with a dollop of yoghurt, jam, nut butter or ice cream!


  • No pears? Use apples instead.
  • No mixed spice? Try with allspice or ground ginger instead. 
  • No muscovado sugar? Use coconut sugar or light brown sugar instead. 

Prep time: 10 minutes

Cook time: 30 minutes

Total time: 40 minutes

Servings: 2


3 Pears

40 g Rolled oats

30 g Light muscovado sugar

45 g Salted butter (melted) / Vegan butter

1 tsp Ground cinnamon

1 tsp mixed spice

1 tsp Vanilla paste


  1. Preheat the oven to 180 C/160 fan/4 gas mark.
  2. Cut the pears in half lengthwise. Use a teaspoon or melon baller to scoop out the core (where you see a few seeds). 
  3. In a bowl, combine the rolled oats, muscovado sugar, 40 g butter (keep 5 g for brushing the pears), cinnamon, mixed spice and vanilla paste. Brush the pears with the 5 g melted butter you have left, and stuff with the oat crumble mixture. 
  4. Place the pears in a baking dish, and bake for 25-30 minutes, or until the crumble is golden and the pears tender.
  5. Serve warm straight out of the oven, or let the pears cool for 15-20 minutes for a crispier cinnamon crumble.
