Warm Apple-Pear Crumble

Warm Apple-Pear Crumble
AOne of my favourite things about autumn is making warm, comfort food desserts. And when I find healthier versions that taste just as good the originals, I do a little happy dance.

This lighter version of fruit crumble tastes delicious and is easy to make. Serve with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or frozen yogurt for that perfect warm/cool contrast.

Preheat the oven to 325⁰F. Lightly spray a 9 x 9-inch baking dish with oil.

To prepare the filling: In a large bowl, combine the pears, apples, honey, lemon juice, flour, and cinnamon. Pour the mixture into the prepared baking dish.
