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:)
Healthy plum crumble
This ‘tree ripening’ method seems to work well as these plums were sweet and delicious indeed. Which is great for this healthy plum crumble recipe, which, as a result, didn’t require much sugar (especially as it’s a breakfast recipe). I used coconut oil instead of butter and whole wheat flour instead of plain white flour, so it’s vegan as well as nutritious. As this is a breakfast crumble recipe I combined the flour with oats. 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!
How to make easy plum crumble recipe
This breakfast crisp recipe with plums is incredibly easy to throw together. Once you’ve pitted the plums place them in your dish overlapping each other slightly. Make the crumble topping by combining all the dry ingredients and cutting the coconut oil into the mixture until crumbles start forming. Then using your fingertips finish off combining the ingredients until crumbly. Lastly, scatter the mixture over the plums and pop in a preheated oven for about 25 minutes until lightly browned and crispy.
Serve with a dollop of yogurt or simply on its own. It’s best eaten hot or at least warm. Enjoy!
This breakfast crumble with plums is highly adaptable and you can experiment with the ingredients to suit your preference. For example you could use only one type of seeds or add some crushed nuts into the mixture. You could also add a bit of nutmeg or use mixed spice, instead of just the cinnamon and ginger.
