Oaty Pear and Chocolate Crumble

Course Dessert
Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 40 minutes
Servings 6


  • 250 g oat flour
  • 150 g salted butter
  • 125 g golden caster sugar
  • 400 g Nutella (1 regular jar)
  • 800 g tinned pears (2 regular tins)


  • Preheat your oven to 200°C or fan 180°C. To make the crumble topping, chop the butter into small chunks, then add to a bowl with the flour and sugar. Rub in the butter with your fingertips, then when you can’t rub in anymore, stir it together with a wooden spoon to combine. It should feel almost like crumbly cookie dough.
  • Take the pears out of the cans but save the juice in a bowl. Chop the pears into bite-sized pieces then layer into the bottom of your chosen crumble dish. I used a 4-inch deep 9-inch casserole dish. Spoon on 5-6 tbsp of the reserved pear juice. Then add the contents of your Nutella jar and spread over the pears to cover them.
  • Finally, spoon on the crumble topping, breaking it apart a little with your fingers if the clumps are too large. Make sure it covers as much of the fruit and chocolate as it can. Bake in the oven for 30-40 minutes, until the topping is turning golden brown. Serve with fresh cream.
