Pear, Chocolate and Muesli Breakfast Crumble

with 2 Comments
Soft, Sweet, Pears, Crunchy, Chocolatey Muesli

This crumble is not your typical mid week breakfast, more of a lazy Sunday morning. It’s also not like your usual dessert. There is no added sweetener, and I served it with natural yoghurt, so it feels like a more decadent version of your regular muesli bowl. It went down a storm with the two little boys of my friends, and was equally appreciated from their parents. So in the days where going out for breakfast aren’t on the cards, treat yourself to this nutritious autumnly breakfast!

Serves 6 – 8


For the Muesli Crumble:

150 g Rolled Oats

75 g Millet

30 g Hazelnuts, roughly chopped

30 g Raisins

15 g Linseeds

20 g Cocoa Powder

50 g Dark Chocolate, roughly chopped

80 g Coconut Oil, melted

1,5 Tsp Ground Cinnamon

Good pinch of Salt

For the Filling:

6 Large Pears

2 Star Aniseed

5 Green Cardamom Pods

7 Black Peppercorns

Natural Yoghurt, to serve


Preheat the oven to 180 °C. Grease a baking form about 25 by 18 cm. In a large bowl add all the ingredients for the Muesli Crumble and mix well together. Put to one side. In a pestle and mortar add the Star Anise, the Seeds of the Cardamom Pods, and the Black Peppercorns with a pinch of Salt and grind to a powder. Peel the Pears, remove the core and chop in to chunky chunks. Place in the baking form and toss with the ground Spices. Spread the crumble evenly over the top of the Pears and place in the oven. Bake for about 45 minutes until the Crumble is toasted and the Pears are baked. Allow to cool slightly and then serve with a good quality Natural Yoghurt.

    YUM, made this for breakfast this morning, perfect for a grey, damp November Sunday. Pears and chocolate one of my favourite combinations.
