Pear/Apple Crumble

Featured Image

There is absolutely nothing wrong with having sweets or desserts every once in a while. Look for desserts that are sweetened with more natural sugars coming from things like fruit, coconut, or honey. These things are sweet but not overly sweet and by choosing these types of desserts more often you will crave less of the desserts packed with processed sugars. Try this Apple and Pear Crisp this fall for a festive treat.
Easy-Peasy Baked Apples Recipe by Meaghan Mikulas
Makes 4 servings These baked apples require no crust and only a few ingredients. The apple peel stays on, making it even easier (and more nutritious!). It can be done in a flash and is great warm or at room temperature. It’s even better when served with vanilla ice cream.
• 2 granny smith apples, cored and sliced
• 2 honey crisp apples, cored and sliced
• ½ tablespoon ground cinnamon
• ¼ cup brown sugar
• 2 tablespoons butter, melted
• ¼ cup dried cranberries or raisins
Instructions 1. Begin by preheating the oven to 350 degrees F. 2. Core each apple and slice it into about 8 wedges. 3. In a deep pie dish add sliced apples, cinnamon, sugar and melted butter. 4. Using hands, toss all ingredients until well incorporated. 5. Place in the middle oven rack for about 30 minutes. The apples should be soft when taken out of the oven. 6. Add dried cranberries, stir and serve! OR Cinnamon Apple, Pear, and Almond Crumble

·         1 cup oats

·         3/4 cup + 1 tbs whole wheat pastry flour

·         1/2 cup raw turbinado sugar
·         1/4 tsp salt
·         3/4 cup raw almonds, chopped small

·         1/2 cup unsweetened apple sauce
·         3 large pears-peeled, cored, thinly sliced
·         3 large apples-peeled, cored, thinly sliced
·         2tbs fresh lemon juice
1.      Preheat oven to 375°. Coat an 8-by-11-inch baking dish with oil.

2.      In a medium bowl, mix: oats, 3/4 cup whole wheat pastry flour, sugar, salt, chopped almonds, 1tsp ceylon cinnamon. Cut in butter and incorporate with hands until crumbly. Mix in apple sauce.

3.      Place peeled, cored, and thinly sliced apples and pears into a large bowl. With hands, gently mix in lemon juice, 1tbs whole wheat pastry flour, and 1 tsp ceylon cinnamon.

4.      Pour fruit mixture evenly into prepared baking dish. Sprinkle the oat mixture on top. Bake for 35 minutes. Cover with tinfoil, and bake for an additional 10 minutes until fruit is tender and topping is golden.


If you choose to use a different type of cinnamon, use slightly less than 2tsps. Ceylon cinnamon is a very mild cinnamon.

I used 3 large pears and 6 small apples. Adjust the amount of fruit to your liking.

I have been at Strongside for close to two months. I have never been in a workout environment that feels so supportive and encouraging. I highly recommend Nutriformance for everyone who is looking for a place to belong.

This is the best lifters gym I've ever been to. There is an almost overwhelming amount of equipment on the upper level.

I like the variety of exercises and intensities, but my favorite part is the technology that allows me to hold myself accountable for my effort and performance.

Great local gym. Lots of weights and machines, friendly staff, and not too crowded.

I am so happy I know this place is here now! I booked a massage with Alexis, I had been in need of one desperately from working at home in the wrong chair for the past few months. She was so kind and intuitive and really knew the exact areas to address. I feel like a new person now, one of the best massages I have ever had! I didn't know they offer pilates here as well and the studio is gorgeous. The atmosphere was great and very clean. I will definitely be back soon!

I couldn’t recommend Alexis (massage therapist) enough. She is kind, professional and knowledgeable every time I see her. She makes me feel comfortable and is mindful of aches and spots on my body that might need more or less attention. I feel so relaxed every time I leave and never want the massages to end. She’s great and I highly recommend her!

The reopening protocols that Nutriformance have implemented are identical to those we are currently using in the professional sports world and my confidence is such that I am completely comfortable bringing my 8- year old son in on a weekly basis to continue his training. The awareness of the staff and their sensitivity to our current health situation are of the utmost priority, based on my observations over the last couple of weeks. If you are an athlete looking to gain a competitive edge over your opponents, a young athlete trying to refine your basic athletic qualities or an adult just looking to stay healthy - I would make Nutriformance my first call.
