🍐 GINGER PEAR CRISP
This quick Ginger Pear Crisp is a perfect Thanksgiving dessert packed with juicy pears, a crisp oat topping, and a touch of spice from the ginger. Talk about incredible flavor! Cooked in a cast-iron skillet, this may be the cutest dessert I’ve had in a while.
ALL YOU NEED:
✨ Bosc pears
✨ Fresh ginger
✨ Old fashioned or rolled oats
✨ Vanilla Greek yogurt
Traditional crisps require TONS of brown sugar, butter, flour, and all sorts of goodness. This is definitely the lazy, healthier version, but I PROMISE it’s just as delicious!
✨ Loaded with antioxidants
✨ Packed with fiber
✨ Easy way to eat more oats
