pear ginger crumble for my valentine

This is quite possibly my new favorite dessert. The best part is that the flavor is out of this world, but it's made with wholesome oats and whole-grain flour; fresh ginger, lemon juice and sliced pears, and very little sugar. Guilt-free and unbelievable.

This recipe actually makes a full pan, but I cut it into thirds for our Valentine's dinner for two. Perfect. The full recipe is below.

Start with 3 pounds firm but ripe pears, peeled, cored and cut into 1/4-inch slices. Gently toss them with 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice, 1 tablespoon freshly grated ginger, 2 tablespoons sugar and 1 1/2 tablespoons all-purpose flour.

Evenly divide the pear mixture into one 8x8 baking dish or six mini oven-proof dishes, such as the one shown (if using the mini dishes, place them on a baking dish together before putting them in the oven).

Top evenly with a stirred-together mixture of 1/4 cup whole wheat flour, 2/3 cup old-fashioned oats, 1/2 cup packed light brown sugar, 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon, 1/8 teaspoon salt and 1/4 cup canola oil.

Bake crumble until the pears are tender and the topping is golden brown, about 35-40 minutes. Let cool for 10 minutes before serving. Serve warm or at room temperature, with a scoop of vanilla yogurt, if desired.
