Roasted Pears Stuffed With Cinnamon Oat Crumble

These delicious pears are cut in half right down the middle and stuffed with a spiced cinnamon oat based crumble. Perfect for breakfast or dessert.


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

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/ gas mark 4.
  2. Cut the pears in half lengthwise, then use a teaspoon or melon baller to scoop out the core (where you see a few seeds) and pop that in the compost.
  3. In a bowl, combine the rolled oats, sugar, 40g butter (keep 5 g for brushing the pears), cinnamon, mixed spice and vanilla paste. Brush the pears with the melted butter you have left, and stuff with the oat crumble mixture. 
  4. Put 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.
