This Vegan Plum Crisp Recipe is a delicious seasonal breakfast idea, low in sugar and super easy to put together. Great as a Sunday brunch recipe idea.
I recently bought plums with a label that said: ‘tree ripened’ and ‘naturally ripened for extra sweetness’. And there was me thinking (naively as it turns out) that fruit which grows on trees also ripens on trees. Where else? Well, I’d rather not know actually. I suppose as long as the label doesn’t say ‘tree grown’ it’s all ok:)
This ‘tree ripening’ method seems to work well as these plums were sweet and delicious indeed. Which is great for this easy plum crisp recipe, which, as a result, didn’t require much sugar. I used coconut oil instead of traditional butter and wholewheat flour instead of plain white flour, so it’s vegan as well as nutritious. I also added a selection of seeds to my vegan crumble topping for extra goodness and flavour. The seeds complement the mild coconut flavour of this plum crumble fantastically!
Serve with a dollop of Greek yogurt (if you don’t need it to be dairy free) or simply on its own with a cup of coffee. It’s best eaten hot or at least warm. I hope you enjoy this simple, easy to make healthy breakfast crumble!

This Vegan Plum Crisp Recipe is a tasty seasonal breakfast idea, low in sugar and super easy to put together.
- 750 g plums, halved, pitted
- 1 cup wholemeal flour
- 5 tbsp coconut oil
- 2 tbsp each: flaxseed, sesame and chia seeds
- 2 tbsp sugar
Preheat the oven to 400 F/ 200 C/ gas mark 6. Place the plum halves in a pie dish or a medium square baking dish, slightly overlapping one another.
In a large bowl combine the remaining ingredients and using a knife cut the coconut oil into the flour until it is in small pieces. Use your fingertips to combine all the ingredients well until a crumbly mixture is formed. Crumble the mixture over the plums without pressing it down.
Bake for 25-30 minutes. Remove from the oven and leave to cool a little before serving.
