Pecan coconut pear crisp

Today I did what anyone would want to do on a rainy autumn day: stay at home and bake apple crisp. After having tea with Mallory yesterday afternoon, she inspired me to use all the over ripe pears in my fridge in a pear crisp! So I made the pear crisp today with a pecan coconut oat crumble. So delicious and goes perfectly with a cup of warm tea. 

Pecan coconut pear crisp
3 medium pears, sliced thinly or into small chunks with skin on 
3/4 cup apple sauce (I just so happened to have some homemade apple sauce on hand!) 
1/4 cup maple syrup or honey
1 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup pecans, crushed 
1/4 cup coconut flakes 
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
2 tbsp of butter, a little warmer than room temp 
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp all spice

1. Preheat the oven to 350F. 
2. In a mixing bowl, mix the butter, brown sugar, flour, oats, spices, pecans, and coconut flakes until crumbly. (Easier if you get down and dirty with your hands)
3. In a square baking dish, spread the sliced sliced pears and apple sauce evenly. 
4. Top the crumble mixture over the apples evenly.
5. Bake for 35-40 minutes or until golden brown.
