Roasted Pear Crumble

I love deserts and as far as crumbles go this is one of my favourites. It’s a real Autumn treat and the delicious crumble topping is packed full of energy boosting seeds and oats.

It's super easy to make and a winning dessert for any occasion. For the kiddies, there's always the option to substitute the mascarpone base for a scoop of ice cream.
