Enjoy fall harvest in this unique Fig Pear and Apple Crisp. Fresh fall fruits with nutmeg and clove spices. Covered with a crumbly, golden almond and oat crisp topping.
Fig, pear and apples? (plus there’s dried cranberries too!)

This oatmeal crisp recipe is a simple way to enjoy fall flavors in a unique and healthy breakfast.
This Fig Pear and Apple Crisp is about as all about Autumn. Ground nutmeg and clove are added for extra holiday spice. It’s also super simple. Thinly slice the apples and pear, and quarter fresh figs. Top with the almond and oatmeal crisp crumble then bake until tender and crisp golden brown.
For additional sweetness beyond what’s in the fruit I added honey. No additional sugar is needed in this apple crisp thanks to the sweet flavor.
Whether you’re fully in fall baking mode, or looking for recipe inspiration, this Fall Harvest Fig Pear and Apple Crisp is sure to impress. It’s loaded with fiber and nutrients from fresh fall fruits, plus protein, healthy fats and complex carbs of almonds and rolled oats. A perfect way to enjoy a sweet breakfast or healthy dessert.

Fall Harvest Fig Pear and Apple Crisp
- 5 large apples, Gala, Pink Lady or Fuji
- 2 large pears
- 5 fresh figs, quartered
- 1 ¼ cups dried cranberries
- 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
- ½ teaspoon ground clove
- 6 tablespoons honey, divided
- ½ cup old-fashioned oats
- ½ cup sliced almonds
- 2 tablespoons whole-wheat flour
- ½ teaspoon salt
- 3 tablespoons cold butter, sliced
- Preheat oven to 375° F. Thinly slice apples and pears and place in a large bowl.
- Stir in figs, dried cranberries, nutmeg, clove and 3-tablespoons honey until evenly coated. Place in a parchment-lined or greased 9x9 square baking dish.
- In a medium bowl stir together oats, almonds, flour and salt.
- Stir in remaining 3-tablespoons honey. Add butter and use a pastry blender to cut into mixture. It should be combined, but crumbly with small clumps.
- Sprinkle over fruit mixture. Bake 35 minutes, or until fruit is tender and topping is crisp and golden brown.
- Be sure apples and pears are ripe and smell sweet. This is the main flavor of this recipe and will affect the results greatly.
- Serve warm, topped with yogurt, ice cream or fresh whipped cream if desired
What a great pair using fig pear and apples! Looking forward to making this soon. It’ll be a great dessert when my family are visiting.
That’s great! Thanks and hope they like it!
I feel that both pears and figs are so underrated but I JUST LOVE THEM. This is my kind of dessert and just love it – not too sweet and a great topping.

This looks amazing – I have a question though – i’ve never actually eaten a fig!!! What do they taste like? Do you peel them? (i’m weird about peel – i won’t eat peaches without peeling them)
The apple & pear i’m completely behind! yum – can’t wait – going to make it this weekend – just not sure about the fig!
That’s a great question Heather. Figs are usually eaten whole. If you’re not a fan of peels then you may not like it. However, once it’s baked it’s super tender and the textures all meld togther.
This looks like the perfect crisp for fall. I bet the figs taste amazing!
Absolutely gorgeous crisp! Love the use of fall fruits and flavors and that topping looks incredible.

Oh this looks incredible and I just bought a box of apples and pears. This post was just in time!
Okay, I’m super excited to find this post! My husband bought a GIANT box of figs and I have never once cooked/used them! This crisp recipe would be perfect, thanks!
