1/4 cup rolled oats

6 Tbsp. whole-wheat flour
2 1/2 Tbsp. packed light brown sugar

1 Tbsp. plus 2 tsp. canola oil

recipe directions
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Lightly spray an 8- or 9-inch round cake pan. In a food processor or blender, pulse the oats and walnuts for 15 seconds. Add the flour, brown sugar and cinnamon. Blend for 15 more seconds. While the food processor is running, drizzle in the oil and blend for 30 seconds. Transfer the oat mixture to a bowl and mix thoroughly.

In another bowl, toss the pears with the next 6 ingredients. Spoon the pears into the prepared cake pan. Cover the pears with the oat mixture, pressing down gently. Bake for 45 to 50 minutes, until the topping is brown and the pears are bubbling. Serve it warm, topped with nonfat frozen yogurt, if desired.

    Warm pear crisp is a great snack. I love it warm with some no sugar added ice cream. The recipw is also good with dried cranberries instead of raisins.
