Gluten-Free Plum Crisp (Vegan)

This plum crisp is deliciously satisfying, it’s easy to make and is a wonderful summer treat that everyone will enjoy!

This year our plum tree produced, seemingly overnight, bushels of plums. I didn’t know what to do with so many ripening all at once. I certainly was not going to let them go to waste! I started using plums in everything I was making…in my smoothies, in my desserts, I even made a marmalade with them! That’s then this recipe was born. I’m a huge fan of fruit crisps, they’re simple to make, easy and everybody always loves them so you really can’t go wrong.

To be honest I’m not the biggest fan of plums, but I since having gotten little more creative I’ve found lots of ways to enjoy them and this plum crisp is definitely one of the them!

If you’re in the mood for something sweet and indulgent but don’t want to feel heavy or weighed down afterwards, this plum crisp is for you! It’s great for breakfast or as a midday snack. It also makes for the perfect dessert to bring when invited to gatherings or potlucks, and good news it’s totally approved on our 30 day lifestyle transformation program!

Not only is it easy to make, but it’s versatile. In case you’re not a fan of plums you can swap them out for berries, apples or any stone fruit of choice. For this recipe I use rice flour but you can switch it out with almond flour which is really good too. Feel free to experiment with other gluten-free flour of choice. Instead of coconut oil you can substitute it with nut butter. Of course, changing out ingredients will change the taste of the original recipe but it’s still yummy.
