Weight Watcher Wednesday-Pear Crisp

I realize it is not Wednesday....but every Wednesday I am going to try to post a Weight Watcher friendly dessert.  Today I chose to make something with pears because I had some just screaming to be used.... sooo I cut those little babies up and made a nice, not too sweet, comforting crisp. 

My tummy is happy

2 1/2 Tbsp. packed light brown sugar

In food processor, pulse oats and walnuts 15 seconds. Add flour, brown sugar and cinnamon. Blend 15 more seconds. While running, drizzle oil and blend 30 seconds. Transfer to bowl and set aside.

In another bowl, toss pears with next 6 ingredients. Spoon pears into prepared cake pan. Cover with oat mixture, pressing down gently. Bake 45-50 minutes, until topping is brown and pears are bubbling. Serve hot.
