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.
