Preheat the oven to 180°C/160°C fan-forced. Cut the butter into small cubes. Roughly chop the pecans. Peel and quarter the pears, then remove the core.


In a medium saucepan, add the water, brown sugar and vanilla-flavoured essence. Bring to the boil over a medium-high heat.


Add the pears to the saucepan, reduce the heat to medium and cover with a lid. Simmer, turning occasionally, until the pear is tender, 20-25 minutes. Remove from the heat.


In a medium bowl, combine the classic oat mix (see ingredients), sweet golden spice blend and the butter. Using your fingertips, rub the butter into the oat mixture, until it resembles breadcrumbs. Add the pistachios, crushed macadamia nuts and pecans and mix well.


Transfer the crumble mixture to a lined oven tray and spread out into a single layer. Bake until golden, 8-12 minutes.

TIP: Keep the crumble slightly clumped together on the tray, if it's spread too thin it can burn!


Divide the Greek-style yoghurt between bowls. Top with the poached pears and sprinkle with nutty crumble. Spoon over the berry compote and some poaching liquid to serve.

TIP: Store any leftover pears and crumble in separate airtight containers!
