There’s nothing better than a warm dessert on a cold evening. A hot dessert topped with cold yogurt and a sprinkle of cinnamon is even better. It’s enough to make you smile with delight. I’ve been wanting to create a healthified version of one of my favorite desserts, apple crisp, for a long time. Say good-bye to some of the more traditional recipes and say hello to a wholesome healthy twist on a delicious dessert recipe. Trust me. Family and friends will love it.
An unexpected day home (snow day) and the timing couldn’t be better. Instead of apples, I used one of my favorite fruits, juicy sweet pears. I’ve eaten a lot of pears, but I’ve never actually created a recipe with them.
Each bite is filled with sweet, soft-cooked pears, and crunchy oat and walnut topping, all with subtle hints of maple, cinnamon and nutmeg and topped with cold creamy yogurt. Maybe even add a final sprinkle of cinnamon on top.

- 2 cups pears, ripe, not too soft, chopped
- 1-2 tablespoons brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon corn starch
- 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 tablespoons all purpose gluten free flour
- 1-2 tablespoons brown sugar
- 6 tablespoons gluten free rolled oats
- Dash of cinnamon
- Dash of nutmeg
- 1/2 teaspoon maple syrup
- 3 tablespoons walnuts, chopped
- 2 tablespoons almond milk
- 1/2 cup plain yogurt
- 1 serving Skoop B-Strong Protein Powder
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
- Spray 2- 8 inch ramekins with cooking spray or grease with oil.
- In a medium size bowl, combine the pears, brown sugar, corn starch, cinnamon, nutmeg and vanilla.
- In a separate bowl, combine flour, brown sugar, oats, cinnamon, nutmeg, syrup and milk.
- Divid the fruit mixture and the topping between the 2 ramekins.
- Bake until browned, about 15 minutes. Watch closely the last 5 minutes or so, making sure the topping isn't overcooked.
- While the Pear Crisp bakes, combine 1/2 cup plain yogurt with 1/2 of a serving (1 scoop) Skoop B-Strong Protein Powder.
- Let cool slightly, about 5-7 minutes, before serving.
- Top with yogurt mixture or ice cream.
The brown sugar amounts may vary depending on the sweetness of the pears and the protein powder added to the yogurt for topping. I used 1 tablespoon of brown sugar for the fruit and the topping mixtures.
