Gluten Free Pear and Hazelnut Crumble


6-8 very ripe pears, peeled and chopped

Crumble Topping
1 cup Hazelnut meal
1 cup Buckwheat flakes (or GF oats)
1 cup shredded coconut
1/2 cup sugar – raw or coconut sugar
125g butter* (or a little more if too dry)
1/2 tsp cinnamon

Combine dry ingredients in a large bowl. Add butter and rub in using your finger tips. (This makes enough for 2 large crumbles)

Place chopped pears in a baking dish and top with half of the crumble mix. (You can freeze the rest for a shortcut next time you make this)

Bake at 170°C for 30 minutes

*Coconut oil can be used in place of butter for a dairy free/vegan option
