Eating well for eczema | Pear and carob oaty crumbles

Eczema friendly pear oaty crumble desserts served in individual ceramic, white ramekins, with a side of carob nibs and classic blue and white striped jug of dairy free cream.
This eczema friendly dessert is simple to make and has a delicious oaty crumble topping. Carob nibs are a healthy alternative to chocolate and are naturally sweet. As the nibs don’t melt when cooked they provide a lovely crunch to this soft dessert, but you can omit these if your little ones aren’t quite ready for crunchy food. 

If your little ones want to get involved, they can help out with rubbing the fat into the flour and stirring up the crumble mix.

As pears are naturally sweet you don’t need to cook them with any sugar. They also contain good levels of vitamin K, which is used to help reduce inflammation and vitamin C which supports liver function.

Ingredients

  • 3 pears, peeled, cored and cut into small chunks
  • 75g gluten free plain flour
  • 50g dairy free spread *
  • 75g jumbo oats
  • 25g demerara sugar
  • 20g carob nibs

Eczema friendly pear oaty crumble desserts served in individual ceramic, white ramekins, with a side of carob nibs and classic blue and white striped jug of dairy free cream.
Pears are rich in vitamin K, which reduces inflammation, and vitamin C which supports liver function. Liver function has been linked to eczema since the early 20th century but is rarely considered in modern eczema management methods.

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 160°C fan, gas mark 4.
  2. Put the diced pears in a pan with 4 tbsp water. Bring to the boil, cover and simmer for 8-10 minutes until soft.
  3. Rub the dairy free spread into the flour, stir in the oats and sugar.
  4. Put the cooked pears into 4 small dishes or ramekins with the cooking juices. Add a little more water if necessary and sprinkle in the carob nibs.
  5. Top with the crumble mix, smooth the surface and place on a baking tray.
  6. Cook for 20-30 minutes until the crumble is golden.
  7. Allow to cool slightly and serve with dairy free cream or ice cream.
