The Fearless Dining household has been in food heaven lately because I have made 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. 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.

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!

Allergen Information:

This homemade fruit crisp is gluten-free, dairy-free, egg-free, and soy-free. Use my grain-free granola recipe below to make this crisp oat-free. You can make my regular granola recipe and omit the nuts to make it nut-free.

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 my Cinnamon Granola or my Paleo (grain-free) granola recipe to top this refined sugar-free plum crisp.

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!!

Step-By-Step Photos and Directions:

Step 1: If you don’t have granola, make a quick batch following one of my homemade 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 coconut sugar, coconut oil, and maple syrup to a bowl. Depending on your plums’ sweetness, you may need to adjust the sugar and syrup higher or lower.

Step 4: Add the granola mixture to the top of the plums. Spread it around, cover the top with foil, and bake at 325º F for 25-30 minutes.

Stick a fork into a plum to test if the crisp is done. If the plum is soft and juicy, the crisp is ready. Top with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream! You may also love my Gluten Free Strawberry Rhubarb Crisp recipe.

Frequently Asked Questions:

Can a fruit crisp be left out overnight?

You “could” leave this gluten-free plum crisp out overnight. No ingredients require refrigeration; however, you risk mold when it is hot outside. To keep it safe, I recommend refrigerating your plum crisp.

Can you reheat plum crisp?

If you prefer to enjoy your crisp warm, you can undoubtedly heat it back up. Heat the oven to 350º F. and bake it for 10-15 minutes until warm. You can also microwave it for 25-35 seconds. Just cover it with a paper towel to prevent a mess. 

Is it possible to freeze crisp?

Yes, you can freeze this plum crisp recipe. Once you remove it from the oven, allow it to cool completely. Then, double-cover it with tin foil to give it a layer of protection. Please place it in an airtight container and freeze it for up to 3 months. To thaw, place it on the counter or in the fridge until it’s defrosted.

How long will this crisp keep fresh?

Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator, and it should keep fresh for up to 4 days.

Fun flavor swaps:

One fantastic thing about this gluten-free crisp is that you can use it as a base recipe and add 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:

  • Peaches
  • Apples
  • Blueberries
  • Pears
  • Apricots
