For The Crumble
In a large bowl combine oat flour, oats, ground flaxseed, salt, cinnamon, cardamom, ginger, lemon, coconut oil, and maple syrup until fully combined and has a crumble like texture that sticks together. Set aside.
For the Fruit Filling
If you are using frozen blueberries, place them in a bowl with cold water. Continue to drain and soak them using cold water. If you are using fresh berries, soak them in a bowl with water and a touch of salt or apple cider vinegar. Meanwhile, wash the pears thoroughly and chop them into small bite-size pieces.
Coat a cast iron baking pan with coconut oil. Combine the pears and drained blueberries and spread into the baking pan.
Top the fruit mixture with the crumble and lightly pack it down using a spatula or your hands.
Bake for 40-50 minutes or until lightly browned.
