This pear crisp is gluten free, low fat, free of refined sugars and absolutely decadent. You won’t miss the butter I promise!
I don’t know about you, but I have a serious urge to make everything I see on the Internet lately! I stalk blogs between sets while I work out. It’s probably why I’m starving when I get home. I decided last Thursday I wanted to make something pumpkin (what else is new?!) But when I got home I realized there was a pear in need of some serious attention – and by that I mean eating. I’m never one to waste food! So I decided to make a single serving pear crisp (zero self control here) and was blown away by the flavor. I know this is not the most aesthetically pleasing dish but the flavors more than make up for it! This week while I was in the grocery store I picked up a few more pears to recreating that single serving crisp into a full sized desert.
I couldn’t help myself!
It’s as good as I remember! This crisp is sweetened with maple syrup, which makes it scream comfort food to me and the chia seeds add a thickness to the sauce that is created from the pears and maple syrup.
The best part is this tart makes 8 hearty servings and is only 95 calories per serving! It’s gluten free and free of refined sugars.
Top with a dollop of sweetened greek yogurt to add some protein to this dessert.
