Vegan pear crumb pie

vegan pear crumb pie

This is my grandmothers recipe that I’ve shaken up and made vegan. Of course I didn’t tell anyone it was vegan until after they devoured the pie! And guess what? No one knew it was actually vegan… ha!

If your a non-vegan then here’s my old recipe for the original pear crumb pie. Crumble top pear pie. Trust me I know you’ll enjoy this! Unless you unluckily…don’t like pears.😔

I’m really excited about sharing this recipe because I have step-by-step photos! I hope they help!

The perfect fall treat!

Flour. I’ve made this pie crust many times in every which way! Gluten free flour works great and normal or vegan butter will work as well.
Pears. I use crisp pears because my grandmother told me that crisp pears are best to use in pie.
Rice flour. Some of my family members don’t do well with corn so I always use rice flour. Corn starch will work in this recipe.
Coconut oil. I used refined coconut oil so there’s no coconut flavor in the pie.
Oats. Even though this recipe Is not gluten free (unless you make it that way) I always use gluten free oats.
Sugar. Organic is best when using sugar. Both the brown and cane sugar I used was organic.
