Raspberry Pear Crumble

A surprisingly easy to make yummy dessert Raspberry Pear Crumble. This recipe is a magical twist on the classic apple crumble.

This crumble is extra special because it’s keto friendly, gluten-free, refined sugar-free, and adaptable to vegan by using plant butter. Using vegan butter is a mega bonus for those with food intolerance’s and allergies.

This gorgeous dessert needs hardly any preparation, and can be eaten cold. It’s super quick to prepare and loveable treat for anytime of the day.

The sweet raspberries and pears are what makes this crumble a self-saucing winner. When the crumble is cooking the juices from the fruit turn syrupy…so yummy and smells outrageous!

The combination of the syrup, fruit and delicious crumble topping is the perfect sweet tooth mix. Try serving with your favourite cream, ice-cream, custard or just as is on its own. Try our dairy-free Gut Friendly Vanilla Coconut Yogurt, or even our Free-From Mocha Coffee Ice Cream to go with it.


To bring out the flavours of the raspberries add a good quality of balsamic vinegar and a pinch of Himalayan salt.

This recipe suggests adding 1 tbsp of brown sugar for appearance purposes only. It is optional, but considering how much is needed it’s worth adding.

When the crumble is cooking sometimes the fruit will burst through the topping. This is a good sign and adds to its delicious appearance.

Perhaps you don’t have fresh raspberries on hand? If not, try frozen straight from the bag to the oven. Other fruit you could experiment with are strawberries, blackberries, loganberries, redcurrants, or go the old fashioned route and use apples. Another alternative is to mix and match.

Can be served hot or cold.
