Blueberry and Pear Crisp

This incredible paleo pear and blueberry crisp is a delicious fruity dessert that will please almost anyone.

The crunchy topping for this dish is incredibly easy to make and tastes absolutely amazing.

Depending on where you live in the world this dish might be called crumble instead of crisp. For example, here in Australia, we call it crumble, but over in the United States, it’s referred to as a crisp.

If you’re looking for something to go with this pear and blueberry crisp, then something such as a creamy coconut custard or ice-cream will go down a treat. This choice just comes down to what you’re feeling like and how much time you have available.

The leftovers of this dish are certainly well worth keeping. Simply keep in the fridge and just serve up some whenever you’re ready to eat. Personally, I love having this for breakfast the next day.
