The Fearless Dining household has been in food heaven lately because I have been making so many gluten free plum recipes. We have done a lot of experimenting, and this gluten free crisp is one of my favorite dishes to make.
Juicy luscious plums make this plum crisp recipe a crowd-pleaser. Take it to your next gathering, and every morsel will get gobbled up so fast there won’t be a crumb left! Especially if you serve it with a helping of ice cream.
We have a few fruit trees and we also had a great time making this gluten free peach cobbler! If you are looking for more delicious plum dessert recipes, try this Vegan Plum Sorbet or this Gluten Free Plum Upside-Down Cake!
Why this plum crisp is great:
If you love juicy sweet plums, this is an incredible recipe that really highlights their delicious flavors! This recipe is quick and easy to make, and I give several types of crisp topping ideas.
In creating this homemade plum crisp recipe, I changed things up a little and used a granola topping. I needed to add some extra healthy components to this recipe. You can use either my Cinnamon Granola or my Paleo (grain-free) granola recipe to top this refined sugar-free plum crisp recipe.
Note, if you prefer a more traditional "crisp" topping, follow the topping recipe in my Gluten Free Apricot Crisp recipe. Stone fruits like plums and apricots make the BEST fruit crisps!!
Recipe step by step directions:
Step 1: If you don't have granola on-hand, make a quick batch following one of my homemade granola recipes. I use cashews and other nuts to give this a little protein boost.
Step 2: Cut open your plums and remove the pits. Add to a bowl with coconut sugar, coconut oil, and maple syrup.
Depending on how sweet your plums are, you may need to adjust the sugar and syrup higher or lower.
Step 3: Add your plums to an 8x8 baking dish.
Step 4: Add the granola on top of the plums. Spread it around, cover the top with foil, and bake at 325º F for 25-30 minutes.
To test if the crisp is done, stick a fork into a plum. If the plum is soft and juicy, the crisp is ready. Top with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream!
