These Ginger Pear Crisps are a delicious, no added sugar, snack for kids. Great for popping into lunchboxes.
After making Cinnamon Apple Crisps and loving them I experimented more with different fruits and spices. Finn absolutely loved these Ginger Pear Crisps and so I knew I had to share them on here. If your kids aren’t keen on ginger then substitute with cinnamon, it works really well too. I often sprinkle both on mine.
The first time I made these I took them out of the oven when Finn was at the park with his Granny. By the time he got home there weren’t many left for him to try. What is it with crispy textured food? Once you start eating you can’t stop! I did manage to leave him a couple and they were an instant hit. I have made them several times now and find them great as a snack at home or out and about.
I find the easiest way to make sure pear crisps are “crispy” is to slice the pears really thin. A mandoline gives the best results, they produce beautiful uniform slices that bake evenly. Keep an eye on them as they bake. If you want a softer, chewier texture then slice thicker. I’m not sure which I prefer, both are great.
