Because our plum tree produced fruit that would get devoured by squirrels before we could get any in past years, I didn’t realize how much I loved plums. I mean, I knew that I loved them, I just didn’t realize how many flavorful recipes I could make.
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.
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.
**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!!

How to make plum crisp:
If you don’t have granola on-hand, make a quick batch following one of my homemade granola recipes.
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.
Add your plums to an 8×8 baking dish.
Add the granola on top of the plums. Spread it around, cover the top with foil, and bake at 325F degrees for 25-30 minutes. To test if the crisp is done, stick a fork into a plum. If the plum is soft, the crisp is ready. Top with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream!
I am sure you have some questions on making this easy plum crisp recipe. Here are some that I can answer for you:
Can a fruit crisp be left out overnight?
Yes, you “could” leave this gluten free plum crisp out overnight. There aren’t any ingredients in the plum crisp that require refrigeration, however, when it is hot outside, you do risk mold. To keep it safe, I would recommend refrigerating your plum crisp.
Can you reheat plum crisp?
Yes, if you prefer the crisp to be warm, you can certainly heat it back up. Heat the oven up to 350 degrees F. and bake it for 10-15 minutes until it warm. You can also microwave it for 25-35 seconds too. Just cover with a paper towel to prevent a mess.
Is it possible to freeze this crisp?
Yes, you can freeze this plum crisp recipe. Allow the plum crisp to completely cool once you remove it from the oven. Then double cover it with tin foil to give it an added layer of protection. Place it in an airtight container and freeze for up to 3 months. To thaw, place on the counter or in the fridge until it’s defrosted.
One amazing thing about this gluten free crisp is that you can use this as a base recipe and add in different fruits. You can either mix the fruit or switch it out completely. Just don’t put in more fruit than the recipe calls for. Try some of these yummy ideas:
