Pear Blueberry Crisp

This is one delicious treat to make with some fresh pears and blueberries. I had some frozen blueberries and they worked just as well. This is a wonderful combination and so yummy with the oatmeal crisp on top of the fruit. Of course, we couldn't resist heating some up tonight after dinner and pouring over top of some vanilla ice cream. It was wonderful.

I made the oat mixture w/o the flour and it was still very tasty and crisp too.

I made this in Ninja but I am sure you could cook it up on the stove or even make your fruit in a crockpot too.
Recipe is from my Ninja cookbook.

Ingredients

3 lb

1 pkg
(6 ounces) fresh blueberries or 1 1/2 cup frozen blueberries
1 Tbsp
lemon or lime juice
2 Tbsp
dark brown sugar
2 Tbsp
butter

OAT MIXTURE

1/2 c
quick oats
1/2 c
dark brown sugar, firmly packed
3/4 c
all purpose flour (optional)
1 tsp
cinnamon, ground
1 tsp
nutmeg, ground
1/4 c
butter, melted

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Stir oats, 1/2 cup brown sugar, flour, nutmeg & cinnamon into pot. Stir in 1/4 cup melted butter. Set the Ninja to STOVETOP HIGH. Cook uncovered 15 minutes or until oat mixture is golden, stirring occasionally.
