Step 1 Preheat oven to 180°C/160°C fan-forced. Peel pears, quarter lengthways and core. Place in a microwave safe shallow dish. Sprinkle with lemon juice and water. Gently toss to combine. Cover and microwave on high for 5 minutes or until just tender. Drain pears and place into a 6-cup (about 4-5cm deep) baking dish. Set aside to cool.
Step 2 To make the crumble topping, combine all ingredients in a bowl. Toss until well combined.
Step 3 Toss dates through the cooled pears. Sprinkle with chocolate then sprinkle with crumble topping. Bake for 40-45 minutes until pears are tender and the crumble is golden and crisp. Serve with vanilla ice-cream or Greek-style yoghurt.
