Per serve: 1131.9kj (269.5cals); 5g total fat (1.2g saturated fat); 7g fibre


You’ll need

4 large ripe pears (880g), peeled, cored (500g flesh)
¼ cup water
1 tbsp sugar
1 tsp freshly grated ginger
½ cup quick oats*
¼ cup wholemeal flour
¼ cup sugar
½ tsp cinnamon
1 tsp powdered ginger
30g light margarine or butter

Let’s go

Heat oven to 200°c.  Roughly chop pears and place into a saucepan along with water, sugar and grated ginger. Bring to a simmer, cover and simmer for 5 minutes. Place into a shallow casserole or pie dish (or 4 ramekins if you like an individual crumble).

To make crumble: Place ingredients into a bowl and combine well using your hands until you have a breadcrumb consistency. Sprinkle crumble over pears. Bake for 25 minutes until golden. Serve on its own or with a little light custard or ice-cream.

*If you don’t have quick oats, just pop what you’ve got in the food processor and pulse a few times to break it down a little.
