1 cup almonds
1 ½ cup rolled oats
1/4 cup coconut oil
1/3 cup maple syrup
pinch of salt
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
3 pears, peeled, cored and cut into 1/2 inch thick cubes
3 apples, peeled, cored and cut into 1/2 inch thick cubes
3/4 cup fresh or frozen (unthawed) cranberries
1 tablespoon freshly grated ginger
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 tablespoons cornstarch
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.
Place the almonds in a food processor and blend for a few minutes until a flour forms.
In a large bowl, combine the almond flour with the oats. In a saucepan over medium heat, stir the coconut oil with the maple syrup, pinch of salt and cinnamon until well combined. Pour this mixture over the oat almond flour mixture, stirring together until well coated.
In a 1 1/2-2 quart baking dish, toss the pears, apples, cranberries, ginger, vanilla and the cornstarch. Sprinkle the oat crumble over the fruit mixture and bake until the topping is browned and juices are bubbling, about 20 minutes. Let cool slightly before serving.
