Healthy Recipe: Apple Pear Oatmeal Crisp

Best Way to Welcome Fall? With Vegan Apple Pear Oatmeal Crisp

What to do with all that gorgeous fruit you came home with after an afternoon of apple or pear picking? Make apple pear crisp, of course!

The soft, cinnamony fruit and crunchy oat topping is a perfect combination, whether you're spending a lazy Sunday in the kitchen or want to wow your friends at their dinner party.

Since it's vegan, it's lower in fat and cholesterol than the traditional dessert, and the pear addition adds a subtle, sweet twist, plus ups the fiber.
