Long gone are the days of sickly-sweet school dinner crumble that’s loaded with sugar. We’ve created an indulgent, warming Pear and Ginger Crumble that satisfies your dessert craving but is still slimming friendly.

Packed full of juicy pears and topped with a light, oaty crumble, this dish is comforting and tasty with the right amount of sweetness: you won’t believe it’s low calorie when you taste it! Try it with a dollop of low-fat Greek yoghurt or a few spoonfuls of custard.

We’ve used brown granulated sweetener in this recipe, which may be something you’ve not used before, but we promise it’s worth it! It’s got a much more ‘sugary’ texture than typical powdered sweetener, which makes it ideal for mixing into crumbles.

We’ve served in individual ramekins for easy portioning, but you could bake in one larger dish if you’d prefer. This dish is ready on the table in 30 minutes, so it’s the perfect choice for a weeknight or when you need a pud in a pinch!

What diets is this Pear and Ginger Crumble suitable for?

Pear and Ginger Crumble can be enjoyed on vegetarian diets.

If you’re cooking for people with allergies, be extra careful when checking ingredients and preparing food!

Do you need any special ingredients to make Pear and Ginger Crumble?

We’ve used brown granulated sweetener as it has a more sugary texture than the finer non-granulated options. You can often find it in the baking aisle at the supermarket, or on Amazon, and we use it in plenty of our recipes so you won’t have it in the cupboard for too long!

If you don’t have any fresh ginger to hand, you can substitute for a teaspoon of ground ginger.
