Spiced Apple and Pear Crisp recipe, Waiting on MarthaA Healthy Apple Crisp with Hearty Pear and Nourish Snacks for the Crunch! | Waiting on Martha

As the temps begin to drop, and Fall quickly approaches, I remember just how much I look forward to and cherish this time of year.  The crisp Fall air, cozy sweaters, pumpkin spice everything…the warmth of this season is hard for anyone to ignore.  And along with all of the warmth are flavors that truly embody Fall for me, and topping that list of course, is apple. Growing up, my mom made the best homemade apple crisp, and it only seems appropriate that I welcome my favorite season with a take on my favorite childhood treat. 

While mom’s classic apple crisp never included pear, it’s always nice to switch things up and offer a different take on a classic.  Enter pear.  I’ve always loved pear’s hearty and dense texture and combined with my beloved apples and seven different spices, including cayenne and fresh vanilla bean, this crisp truly brings all the warmth that fall encompasses.  And I mean, how precious is an apple crisp in an apple dish?!?!

Now I did mention this recipe is a healthy spiced pear and apple crisp.  Instead of your typical flour-based and sugary topping I utilized the crunch of Nourish Snacks without the calories of a typical crisp.  You may remember I’ve subbed out ingredients for Nourish’s gluten-free, non GMO, snacks before (our Super Simple Cocoa & Fruit Parfaits are a must-try!), and for this particular recipe the combination of Nourish’s Apple Cinn-sational and Berry’d Treasure completely compliment the crisp and provide that crunch I crave.  And let us not forget, by taking the healthy topping route it allows us to splurge on the vanilla bean ice cream that every crisp really deserves.  So tell me, how will you be welcoming Fall this year?  Truly, MKR
