If you’re looking for a brunch dessert that can be made up quickly and easily in one pan, this gluten free pear-walnut dessert crumble recipe is going to make your quick and easy dessert dreams come true!
Tender pears, crunchy walnuts, and gluten free oats are seasoned and baked up into a crumble that’s crispy on the outside and sweet and juicy on the inside. In addition to making a great Fall dessert (hello, Thanksgiving!), it’s a perfect brunch treat, or bake some up for Mother’s Day!

I’ve admitted on more than one occasion that I’m a bit of a lazy chef. It’s a character defect that I’m willing to live with because it means that many of my recipes have shortcuts, 5 ingredients or less, and most of themtake less than 30 minutes to make.
Today’s pear-walnut crumble fits in the less than 30 minutes category, thanks in part to one of this week’s sponsors, Woot Froot, who sent me pears that had already been cored and sliced. As a result, I spent very little time wielding a knife to dice up the fruit. Those single serving sized pouches of pears were just what this lazy chef needed, and they made great stuffers for Brian’s lunch box, too!
I also used ingredients from a few of our other sponsors: Vanilla extract from Nielsen-Massey, crunchy California Walnuts, brown sugar from Dixie Crystals, and gluten-free oats from Bob’s Red Mill. FOOD FACT: Oats are naturally free of gluten, but Bob’s Red Mill manufactures products at their facility that aren’t gluten free, so they have an entire line of products that are manufactured in a gluten-free facility. Just one of the many reasons that I adore them. My pantry always has a bag or two of their low carb baking mix in it, too. I use it in almost all of the low carb cookies and muffins that I make.
As the crumble is baking, your home will smell like sweet cinnamon-vanilla oatmeal, and when it’s served up to your brunch guests as a warm, freshly baked skillet of deliciousness with a creamy cold scoop of ice cream on top, they just may be begging you for second helpings.
