Gina Homolka’s Skinnytaste recipes always resonate with us, but this one really hits home. She takes our juicy Royal Riviera® Pears and folds them in with Gala apples, honey, cinnamon, brown sugar, and oats to create an amazingly sweet crumble dessert recipe that has less than 200 calories per serving. 

There’s nothing better to me than a warm dessert on a chilly autumn evening. I’m all about hot desserts with cold toppings—a dab of fat-free frozen yogurt on top of something warm and sweet is enough to make me swoon. With this nutrient-packed dessert, you’ll score an impressive 3 grams of filling fiber and 2 grams of satiating protein, all for less than 200 calories.

    Love this and made it at Christmas with some of the gift pears we received.

    You can make it gluten-free by using a tablespoon of corn starch instead of flour for the filling, and using almond flour instead of all purpose flour for the crumble topping.

    This always gets raves.
