2. Meanwhile, mix 1 cup of xylitol with the molasses, this makes a sugar-free form of brown sugar, stir well to incorporate
3. In a bowl, combine the oats, “brown sugar”, liquid coconut oil, ½ tsp of cinnamon and the sliced almonds, set aside
4. In a separate bowl, combine the remaining xylitol & cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla and almond flavors, then add the pears, toss gently to evenly coat the pears
5. In a 13×9 baking dish, pour the pears in and spread evenly
6. Sprinkle with the crisp topping to cover all the pears
7. Bake at 350 degrees for 40-45 minutes or until the topping is golden brown and pears are bubbling
